TGF Day: A Hippie and a Bear

My Anyas haven't seen a lot of love lately. My friend's daughter wanted to make a card for her friend's birthday, so she came over and I gave her a little tutorial about coloring. She picked Hippie Anya, and I am embarrassed to say that this little cutie had never seen ink. I colored the image alongside my friend's daughter, and the image sat for a few days while I gathered my ideas. Well, the ideas in my head were a little better than the execution, but I can live with it. The leather is a little cumbersome to work with, but you probably get the idea with where I was going! I love this piece of denim paper, and I have had it for years not knowing how to use it. This was the perfect occasion!

The above card was the little cutie Toby Cub that was a freebie from the CHA relay on TGF's blog. There is so much joy in that little cub's is infectious! I kept the card very simple and almost bare bones. I didn't want to detract from its cuteness! I used this week's sketch on Mercy's blog MTSC58...check it out. I'm always inspired by Mercy's cards!! I thought it only fitting to use her sketch to go with one of the images from the Critter Crew!!

Above is the picture of the Copics I used with the Toby Cub card. Sorry for the scarcity of details today...I'm scheduling 4 posts in a manner of an hour, so my time is tight tonight!

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
