It's all about the Bears!

This card was really fun to work on.  The entire background, the ribbon, and the image (Bugaboo's Cloud Bear) were all layered digitally.  After printing them, I colored the bear and added the dots and flower.  It was made for a belated birthday, but it would have made a great baby card, don't you think?

The pink flower is felt and came from Creative Memories.  Wish I had more, it's really nice.

We have begun renovation of our living room.  The walls are almost 60 years old, and back in the 70's were covered with wood paneling.  The paneling was glued on, so in order to remove it, we have to remove the wallboard under it also.  This is what we found on the first wall, which is where my father-in-law added the living room on to the house, the original 80 or 90 year old wood siding.  Kind of interesting.  Can't wait to get it finished and see how good it looks.  After this it will be a BIG improvement!

Happy Spring!  We're on the last day of our Easter Break, and tomorrow is the first day of the countdown to the last day of school.  Hope my seniors can hang in there!  Oh, good news.  I just got word today that one of my seniors will receive the YES, I CAN! award at the state Council for Exceptional Children conference in Billings in 3 weeks.  I am so excited for her.  What a great ending to her high school career!

Have a nice week!
