Storytelling Bears

Hi Everybody,
Thanks for your lovely comments, so glad you liked the Butterfly Babies Book. Hope you’re all well and that you had a great weekend. I know it’s already Tuesday, but never mind. I had a great day working with some of the Roosevelt Bears by Nicecrane Designs. They are fabulous, it was as if they were talking to me … telling me their little stories … and now they are walking around my house!!!!

As you can see there are four beautifully drawn images …

… especially good and easy to use for men’s cards … and here is what I made with them …

growing young bear

This bear looks as if he is resting after a day’s work and could easily be used for a ‘Happy Retirement’ card. He also seems to be deep in thought, hence my sentiment. He could also be used for Birthdays, Thank You, Miss You …

… and on to the next cheeky chappy …

Get well soon bear

As you can see it is a get well soon card. He looks as if he has a bit of a hangover, maybe that last glass of wine had gone off a bit … Like all the other images he was so easy to colour in, you just follow the lines for the shading. I suppose, you might not even have to, because the shading is already within the drawing … just give it a go and experiment.

And on to the mischievous couple …

birthday joy bears

Look what I found!!! Wonder what they have been up to … hmmm

… and on to my last card

thank you bear

… the hard working one. Maybe he earned all that money that he then pulled out of the purse … hmmm

I turned him into a ‘Thank You’  card. This seems to be the bear caught up in house work or any other job, nevertheless he looks happy enough and seems to be enjoying himself.

Hope you enjoyed my blog today and that you got some inspiration from it. If you feel tempted, please check out the Nicecrane Designs website, there are lots of images each telling their own story.

For more inspiration check out their blog.

Back soon with another post … until then

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
