"Bear Buddies"

"Beary Best"

I colored these cuties with Derwent Inktense pencils and their
boots with Tombows. I paper pieced a few of the new
"Love Hearts" image, cut them out and layered them.

For my next card I am using
"Happy Hippos"
with the 
"Friends Are We"

I painted the adorable Hippos with Tombow  markers.
The DP is from the "Dreamcatcher" paper pad.
