Bear Hugs Birthday: Slider Card

Bear Hugs Birthday

Welcome back!  Today’s share is a slider card we made at my last workshop. One attendee asked if we could make a slider card and so we did. The last slider card was with the Sale-A-Bration Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set and can be found HERE.  I love this Bear Hugs Stamp Set! When I first saw it in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog the possibilities kept flowing in my head. This stamp set can be used for a masculine, feminine and children’s card for any occasion. This slider card was made with my son-in-law in mind for his birthday which we celebrated on Friday.

PLEASE NOTE: I’m in the process of redesigning my blog. I thought it was time for a new look.  I’ll post when I can this month, but it may not be as frequent as I would like…
