Bear Hugs :)

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! I hope you're having a beautiful weekend! I'm fluttering in to post on the My Craft Spot blog today. :o)

This is my latest contribution for sweet Lily, this month's recipient of the I Feel the Love Project. While she battles leukemia, I want her to know how deeply she is loved. Purple is her favorite color, so I used some of my favorite purple goodies throughout.
Most of my projects are for charitable purposes and I can always count on Kimberly to have the perfect sentiments, regardless of the recipient's age or difficult circumstance. I wanted to send Lily some teddy bear hugs, courtesy of this sweet Posy Trio stamp from Lili of the Valley (colored with Copics).
The precious sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. I love the bear(y) greetings on that set! :o) I tucked it beneath Buttercup crinkle ribbon, chosen to reflect ruffles of sunshiny love. The gorgeous roses throughout are from Wild Orchid Crafts, which I've trimmed with Star Dust.

The scalloped bases for the teddy bear stamps are from the Tiny Doilies 2 metal die set. I used the new Fancy Edges- Halloween metal die set to add the stitched design to the top of the middle panel. The beautiful borders were made with the floral die in the Fancy Edges 2 set. I love how it looks lacy. :o)
The butterfly is a Memory Box Isabella die, which is cut out with glittery purple cardstock and covered in Glamour Dust. She's sparkling with so much hope for Lily! My papers are from Wild Rose Studio's Bluebell collection.
Such a strong little girl... I hope these little bears bring a smile to her heart. :o)
Thank you for fluttering on by and have a blessed weekend! :o)
