Donny Joy and Wonder:

Hi all!  Well after being on the StampFairy team for over three years, I did the unthinkable (well, to myself anyway) and stepped down from the team.  So sad - felt like I was losing my family :(

With that said, I of course, made a bear card as my last card on the team.  Love my bears!!!

Stamps: Donny StampFairy, Papertrey Ink sentiment, JustRite Signed Sealed Delivered (background)
Inks:  Prismacolor pencils, Craft Smart Chocolate and Gold, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap, Versafine Onyx
Papers/Cardstock: MME, Echo Park/Recollections
Bits/Bobs: Wild Orchard flowers, Celebrate It pom poms (that I made into snowballs)
Tools: sewing machine, Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties


I created this card for the following challenges: Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch, Merry Monday - holiday animals



Enjoy your week and keep on crafting.  Cheers!
