Tag You're It! #63 - Snow Bear

Happy Friday!  I hope you're having a great day!  I've been doing lots of organizing and cleaning house lately.  I've dropped off bags and bags at the Good Will and to be honest I'm confused because I don't see any big open spots where all that stuff was before!  So I'm going to keep purging until I see a difference.

I've got another dental surgery coming up on the 30th.  I'm having two more implants started.   I'm working ahead on assignments when I can in case I don't feel so good for a few days.

I'm also the host of the March 12 Kits of Occasions and am busy working on making kits for the team.  There's going to be three chances for you to win one of the kits at the end of the month so if you're interested in playing along make sure you come back on January 31! My theme is "out of this world" .. think outer space!   That's the only hint I'm giving!

Today I'm reminding you to join us at Tag You're It Challenge!  Our guest / muse this time is Karin Akesdotter from Peppermint Patty's Papercraft.  Karin is amazing - she is a brilliant watercolor artist.. AND one of my favorite papercrafts / cardmakers!  When I think of Karin I think of cute critters in amazing scenes.  Her backgrounds are always amazing!
I hope I do her proud with my little polar bear scene!   I kept with many elements of Karin's design.. ..

And instead of a little heart I added a snowflake as an accent.  The Polar Bear is from Pretty Pink Posh Winter Wonderland stamp set.  The frame for my shaker is a Scallop Circle, and the paper bow is from the Stitches and Bows die set.  The little snowy hill the igloo is on is a Scallop Border die -  there's three in the set and I just love them!  They are scalloped and stitched so they make everything extra special and coordinate perfectly with the scallop frames.

The shaker is filled with Sparkling Clear 4mm Sequins and White Micro Beads from Pretty Pink Posh.

There's only about a week left to join us at the Tag You're It Challenge!  I sure hope I see you there!  I'd love to see what you create!

Wow, love your colors! The sky looks amazing and what an adorable bear! Had to laugh when you wrote about your purging. Before the holidays we spent quite a lot of time 'cleaning' in the basement. We even had a garage sale! Things are now in neater piles but I don't see any large bare spots! Guess I'll need to try again in spring. Sorry to hear about all your dental problems, not fun I know! Hope everything goes smoothly, and as painlessly as possible. Sending hugs!!
