Stamp Fairy Thank You Bear

Stamp Fairy Thank You Bear meets Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Sketch #54 actually...

I keep seeing all these cute images from Stamp Fairy, then discovered the other day through my friend Lisa's blog that they have digital papers too.  I'm there! 

I added a couple of Stamp Fairy's digital paper packs and a cute teddy image called Thank You Bear to my collection.  

My card today uses that cute bear, I thought it would be perfect for my Operation Write Home Spring Thaw Card Drive project so instead of adding a "thank you" sentiment I used a vertical rubber stamp to make it an "any occasion" type of card.  If you're interested in the OWH Spring Thaw Card Drive or would like to learn more about it, click on the badge for it in my sidebar.
I colored the bear with Copic markers Y13, Y15, Y18, R02, R22, R24, E000, E42, E43, E44, YG11, YG13, YG17, C3, C6 and cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die and matted it with another Spellbinders scalloped circle die.  The ric rac die is made by Papertrey Ink and I also used a Sizzix embossing folder.
The layout for my card is Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Sketch #54.  I liked the idea of using the Stamp Fairy bright plaid digital paper to match the daisy and Jak Heath's Shower of Hearts digital paper to go with the hearts in the focal image.  I matted everything in Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip.  The pink shades in the bears ears and paws made me think of Stampin' Up! Cameo Coral so I used it.  It's kind of an odd combination of patterns and colors but I like it!

I e mailed Gerda who is the artist and owner behind Stamp Fairy a photo of my card and it's going to be on the Stamp Fairy World blog today, how cool is that?!

Hi Jan,
I was so excited to see your card over at StampFairy World, it was a pleasant and fun surprise!

When I went to the blog and took and saw my first sneak peek of the new release, my VERY first thought was OWH and how they would be really cute for cards! At that time I had never dreamed, (until I finished reading Gerda's whole post), that you and your card were featured below the new images!! It was a total and very FUN surprise for me!!

I also did a little post about OWH and the Stars and Stamps blogs! You can only imagine my surprise when I can here to write about it and found you had mentioned ME in your post today!!

How SWEET! You are such a doll and totally made my day!!
