[DYSU] Challenge #35 - Friendly Critters

I can't believe it's already September. The summer has just flown by and fall and winter holiday are just peeking around the corner. This next Do You Stack Up (DYSU) challenge helped me put me in the right mood, but you can interpret it however you want. As long as you add a Friendly Critter to your card, you're golden :) Check our our inspiration picture for this week...

Di's Digi Downloads, among others, is sponsoring this round and I was lucky enough to play with one of their cute bears called Loving this White Stuff.

Snow Card
Stamps: (Loving this White Stuff) Di's Digi Downloads; (Free Spirit Sentiment) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollection; (Snow Day Collection) Crate Paper
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Sugar Spun) Ranger
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Stickles - Red) Ranger

When I was coloring this cute bear, I was thinking of Tatty Teddy. He has an irresistible gray, blue-ish fur. I wanted to create a fun snow day, but no matter when it snows, it's always dreary and pretty gray. A great way to brighten everything up, is to give this cute lil bear a ridiculously colorful scarf. A bit of sparkly and polka-dotting never hurts, right?

I added a little bit of pink distressing to give the card a little glow. Had to match his cute lil ears and paws. A tad of fun pattern paper from Crate Paper, and I call it done :)

I hope to see you play along this week. Hop over to the DYSU blog to see some of their creative way the DT has interpreted this theme for this week.
