Bear-y Busy Busy Bears.....

I love the new release from MelJens this week. I was so excited to see the Military Bear and the others, just the ticket for the guys-young and old. They're all lil boys at heart right? I always said I lived with 6 boys even though I only had 5 sons. Pop (my husband) was and still is an overgrown boy even now that he is Pop Pop to 5 lil granddaughters.(How's that for a switch after 5 sons and no girls.)

Currently our Hero is our Son Ed who is serving in the Air Force. We are so proud of him, his wife and 2 lil girls and the sacrifice they are willing to make at this time. We are so grateful for all the men, women an families who are making that same sacrifice for all of us and the freedoms we enjoy. This card with Military Bear is for Ed:

My granddaughter wanted a card for a little boy in her kindergarten class that was having a birthday party and this lil Astronaut Bear was just the thing to wish him a "special day that was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD!"

These were a blast to color. I love Melissa's lil bears.

You can find these new Bear-y cute images at MelJens and be sure to check out the current challenge at her Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Creating...


  1. Oh these are so cool!! I saw the images on the Meljen's DT blog, I think, and they made me smile! Love the army bear - what you did with the flag paper and your amazing coloring! He looks so real! I have an uncle and a cousin in the Air Force. We're all very proud of them. :) And your astronaut card is amazing, I love the background - is it an actual picture of the night sky? So fun, thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Yes, the background for the astronaut card is a photo I downloaded from the net. I liked the way it worked out.

  3. Oh are these every cute! The little soldier bear would be so cute for an "Any Hero" card for Operation Write Home, love it!
    The astronaut is adorable too :) Love your backgrounds - digital images are so fun to work with!

  4. Robbie - both of these are just fabulous!!! LOVE the bold colors in the astronaut bear!!! I love the flag paper in the Army bear!! Wonderful girl!
