Pretty Little Studio - Barney Bear


I know lots of people like to go camping in the summer, when the kids are out of school, but for me Fall is the perfect time. The cooler weather makes it easier to pack your gear, and hit the trails. There is so much beauty to be found around every turn. The fall foliage is drop dead gorgeous and another big plus? The bugs aren't as active. This cute die cut is Barney! Isn't he adorable? I don't want to run into any bears on my adventure, but I'd be delighted to catch a glimpse from a very safe distance! 
Everyone knows bears love honey- and honey comes from flowers! The Larkspur Seed Packet is from the Marigold Cosmos Journaling Packet. If you look close behind the button you'll see a bit of lace peeking through. I trimmed a portion from a 4" Cambridge Doily for a focal point behind the button. I'll use the rest of the doily on another project.
The pretty background paper is from the Marigold Collection. The Treasure Island Navigator Note Flags make it easy to stamp or hand write a simple sentiment and attach it to your project. I punched a 1/8" hole and inserted a pin to secure it to my card
I love a little sparkle and shine so I added some irridescent sequins from the Baby Avery Confetti Mix.

I hope you have some outdoor activities planned! Living in the Midwest I know that winter will be here way too soon and you need to make the most of the beautiful weather!

Oh my goodness...I want to give that darling Barney a good cuddle and a honey treat! Simply fabulous! We went on a lovely hike yesterday, through Moose Meadows to the Inkpots. The trees, in their fall splendor, were breath-taking gorgeous, and the ink pots themselves were burbling away, happily! Beautiful...as is your card!

Oh, this bear is such a dear. I would consider (just consider) camping if I could be assured to see such a cute bear in the woods.
