Father's Day Bear Card

Good morning friends

It's Masculine Card Monday here on my blog and I have a square Bear card to share today.

I found these bear images at the Mesa Rubber Stamp Show in the Spring. There are several bear images, and they work so well for masculine cards. The embossed birch panel was swiped with metallic Pan Pastels for just a touch of shimmer.

Inside there are two fussy cut fish tied together with Bakers Twine, and the large area for a greeting. The fish come in the same set as the bears.

I ended up doing some hand lettering inside and gave this card to hubby for Father's Day. Funny thing though, I forgot to sign it after doing the lettering so he joked that I can give it to him again next year. Ha!

We have out of town guests, and went for a drive in Kananaskis on Friday to enjoy the beautiful fall colours and sunshine. We were lucky enough to spot a Grizzly! One other car had pulled over and respectfully took photos from their vehicle as well. We sat and watched her feed for over 10 minutes and were completely mesmerized. A real highlight of their visit! I always call in those types of sightings, and apparently we were watching Grizzly Bear #152 - a real beauty.
