SUO Challenge ...

One of my Pals, Carla, at Carla's Scraps, told me about this challenge and encouraged  me to participate.  So I clicked on over to SU-Only Challenges to read about it.  This was my first time to check out their site and I really liked what I found.  I will certainly be participating again!  This week the participants are to use their favorite retired SU stamp set.  Let me tell you, I have well over a hundred to choose from.  I know I really should sell some of them.

The first stamp that came to mind was the very first set I purchased ... Button Bear.  A very versatile set which is great for starting out.  I also used a few other retired sets.  My inky, and today chalky, fingers went to creating and ended with this ...

Stamps:  Button Bear (retired), Year Round Fun (retired), Lucky Me! (retired)
Paper:  Garden Green Close to Cocoa (retired), White
DSP:  Garden Green (retired)
Ink:  Black, Garden Green
Accessories:  Stampin' Pastels, rhinestones, sponge dauber, Finial Press EF, dimensionals, corner rounder
All products are Stampin' Up!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a new PPA challenge card.

Have a great day,
Pam~

It looks like a winner to me! I love your teddy and how cute it is for making a St. Patrick's Day card. I love how you colored his bow.

I bet you had a lot of rain like I did. It is raining again now. I can see some of my grass beginning to turn green. Hallelujah! Things should really be looking good and green in a month. Can't wait.

Pam, I love that you made this little guy perfect for St. Patty's Day! I love it! His little shamrock is so stinkin' cute, too. It's even more fun that this is the first set you ever purchased. Mine was Birthday Beauty and I still have it and use it frequently. :)

My first time here visiting your blog and I love what you've done with Button Bear! I love Button Bear and was fortunate to find Bow Bear online for a great price.
