Bear Hugs

Do you remember ever getting asked, "Do you like kisses or hugs better?".  My answer would always be "both", lol.  But I'd never turn down a great hug, thats for sure!!

My family just spent a long weekend at my brother's house in Williamsburg, Virginia.  It was our first family trip in years!!  We had such a great time visiting with family and seeing the sights of the town.  My brother and his wife were kind enough to open their hearts and their home to us during our little mini vacay, so I wanted to send them a card to thank them for allowing us to stay with them and showing us a wonderful time.

I used the new Wednesday Stamp Club sketch for MFT as inspiration along with the PI Bear Hugs stamp set from MFT as well.  This is what I came up with for their card:

Isn't she just the sweetest thing???  I used some new papers from Simple Stories called Vintage  Bliss.  The cardstock is a mix of DCWV The Linen Closet Collection and DCWV Self-Adhesive Textured Brights matstack.  My little cutie is colored in Copics.  I added a Sukura Gelly Roll pen in White to add some polka dots to her leggings and her matching bow.  I've also given her and her little teddy some cheeks with the same pen.  Up in the corner is the heart that was leftover from cutting out the SVG polaroid file on my Cricut Expression.  I added an EK Success puffy heart sticker in the center for dimension.  The sentiment was lightly inked in some teal Studio G Chalk Ink.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card using up some of the scraps from the front:

Hoping you all have a fabulous weekend ahead of you!!  Thanks for stopping by :)
