...Get BeTTeR BeaR...

Last Saturday, In honor of
WoRLd CarD MaKinG DaY


I LoVe the idea of making cards and sending them to a place where they can make someone smile AND make someone's life easier!  I know how hard it is to visit someone in the hospital...You always try to bring them just a little something to add some cheer to their day...  I think it would be awesome if every hospital had a stash of homemade cards for you to pick from...not that I don't love Hallmark...but it's just not the same as a crafted card.

Jen Shults came up with a sketch for this week's challenge

This card had a LOT of scary layers, but it also has a LOT of rectangles, which would make it work for another challenge I saw

The FriDaY MaShUp Challenge was to use this color scheme or rectangles or both...

I didn't have the exact colors they wanted...but I tried to get close...

Hopefully that's ok ;)

....Here's my card....

I count 12 rectangles....HoLy SnaP!

I used the Taylored Expressions Beary Special set as well as the Accessories set....and then LaYereD...and LaYeReD...and LaYerED some more!!

I can only hope it ends up making someone feel just a little better.

If you have any cards collecting dust in your stash, I think this would be a WonDeRFuL opportunity for you to clear some space (and we all need more space) AND do something nice...WiN-WiN!! ;)

I couldn't wait and have already sent this (and several others) out to the hospital listed on 

The Department of Volunteer Services - Unit 115
Attn: Maggi Suttles
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center
1515 Holcombe Boulevard
Houston, TX 77030

Thanks for LoOking!
have a GreAt Wednesday!


  1. What a cute card! That will definitely lift someone's spirit. And what a great reason to make the card! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  2. Wow, now that's a lot of rectangles! What a beautiful job mashing up the challenge this week! That teddy bear is just too, too cute! Thanks for sharing with us at The Friday Mashup this week!

  3. Love this layout; so many rectangles indeed! I am working on some cards to send to that same place. It feels wonderful to know they are going to cheer up cancer patients. Thanks for joining us at The Friday Mashup.
