Tuesday Morning Sketch - tear bear

Time for Tuesday Morning Sketch #172!!  It's such a fun challenge this week, too!!   Our sponsor is  The Beary Scrap...

This week is a judged challenge.  That means follow the sketch and the twist in order to win!  We also choose a Top 5 in our judge challenge!   

The sketch...

The twist...
Create an animal with punches or make a tear bear!!
(If you're not sure what to do, Google "punch animal" or 
"tear bear" and you'll find ideas.  You need mulberry paper for a 
tear bear,  but any paper will work for a punch animal.  It is amazing 
what  you can make with plain old circles from a punch!!)

Here's my card...
After my bear was together, I realized I had not inked my edges. :(
 I have always thought tear bears were so cute but all the mulberry paper I had was so thin that it would not work.  Soooooo... I  purchased some mulberry paper (from The Beary Scrap) in order to make a proper tear bear.   I did not use a Beary Scrap pattern... I eyeballed it and made my own circles and then fluffed the paper.  It is so fun!!!   The Beary Scrap has much more than just tear bear patterns and mulberry paper, so be sure to check them out!!

I've been using my supplies on hand and have not spent any money on crafting for awhile as we are trying to watch our pennies.   I was able to shop because the sweet ladies at my church gave me money for crafting for my birthday!!   I'm having great fun spending it!!   The other day, our family went out and I made everyone go through the line so I could use lots of coupons! :)

*gasp* ooooh, I LOVE tear-bears!!! Oh this li'l guy is so furry and adorable!! I only have a few pastel colors of mulberry and live too far away from a craft store to just go buy some, but next time I go, I'll have to remember to look for some. Those look soo FUN to make! *Ü* Great job, thanks for the inspiration!!
