Fred Bear Hits the Beach with the CRAZIES


For the month of July, Jessie Rone will be our hostess for the Crazy4Challenge team.   As many of you know, Jessie is the Queen of Ribbons.  That girl can put ribbons on a card in so many ways and each of them fabulous!!!  Well, our challenge this week was to use three different ribbons on our card.  Well, I used three different colored ribbons of the same style to create my ribbon effect.  I didn't want to use a typical bow, which made this a real struggle for me....but I am happy with the final result.

This cute bear image is from My Favorite Things upcoming release.  The set is called Fred Bear Hits the Beach and includes the image and sentiments seen on the card in addition to one more sentiment.  It will be available for purchase on July 7th.  Kim, from MFT, was kind enough to share some of her new stamps sets with us.

Now you really must visit the rest of the Crazies.  Be sure to stop in to say hello to our newest  Crazy, Angela Wood.
