Blogger's Challenge ~ Birthday

I haven't created anything this week.

It was customer appreciation week here, so it takes me a whole week to fully appreciate everyone! 6-8 people at a time for a week.

Although I feel a little late with this weeks blogger's challenge, it gave me a push to get out in the studio and start thank you cards from my daughter's birthday party last month.

If you read my blog, you may have seen my daughters birthday this year was at build a bear. My nephew John is all boy and affectionately named his commando bear "kill". Yep ~ all boy!

My mom (nana) informed me that John sleeps with his bear every night in cute little boy form, but to make the cut, he had to be one tough teddy.

When making the thank you for little John, I couldn't help myself. So here is Beary Cute Commando Bear, to send a special little thank you to my nephew.

I colored him with chalk pastels, to make him look bear like and even colored the designer paper with pastels, although the picture only picked up the black, it matches better with old olive in person (it's weird how that works sometimes). I'll be glad to get some thank you's in the mail. :) Anyone else feeling behind?
