Get Well Bear

Here is another card from my November 2015 Splitcoast time. Each Dirty Dozen month has a theme. If you are a member of the Fan Club, you can view more details about this card and its relation to the challenge here.

Here are the notes I kept from when I first posted the card on Splitcoast:

My original idea was to have the bear in a tent, but that wasn’t working, so I thought I’d do an approximation of a tent, but what I ended up with made me think sleeping bag. I added a bit of pattern paper to help it look even more like a sleeping bag.

I like to make useful cards when I stamp, so I had to think about what kind of sentiment would go with a sleeping bear. I came up with lots of ideas (sweet dreams, cozy thoughts, etc.) but those aren’t cards I would give to anyone, but I thought sleeping is usually essential for getting better when sick.

Thanks for taking a peek!
