Spring Bear

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Include an Animal
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I just love all of Di's images; they are all sooooo adorable!!  This little guy was just screaming to be colored up.  I'm definitely ready for winter to be over, though I would REALLY like to have one good snow storm first!  We've had several predicted, but then they've just turned to rain.  My kids and I are still hoping . . .  After that, I will be ready to see some cute little Daffs poking their heads out of the ground!  I had a bit of a problem coloring up this image.  I was trying to fix things and it just kept getting worse, so, I'm not super happy with how the bear turned out, but didn't really have time to color it again.  And then, my marker slipped and made a long brown line right out of his backside.  Ugghhh . . . I was able to mostly fix it with a blender pen, but had to hide it with the hello die cut; which is a fun addition anyway.  I die cut the "hello" three times and layered them together the sponged the edges with a little bit of dark brown ink to set it off a bit.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.
