Hobbie the Bear times FOUR

Hobbie the Bear times FOUR!!!  After that last little project with him, my mind started thinking about the patchwork stuffed bears I use to make and thought how fun would he be in printed paper!!!  So you can see, I had to try a variety!!!
So it was easy to make Hobbie a cute little girl bear by adding some flowers, hearts and some lace!
#407 HOBBIE THE BEAR
#20 ROMANTIC LACE BORDER DOOHICKEY DIE
#34 WILD STRAWBERRY AND FLOWERS DOOHICKEY DIES - Little Flower
#17 SNOWFLAKE AND MISTLETOE DOOHICKEY DIES - Leaves
Isn't Hobbie the cutest peeking through the window?!!!  I used the Memory Box window die with the mini scallop die in 3 layers for the "curtain" and the wainscoting was made by making score lines with the Scor-Pal and then adding little strips of paper to the bottom and top.  The clouds I hand cut because I didn't have the new #55 ROUND TALK/THOUGHT BUBBLE DOOHICKEY DIES, but those would have worked perfectly for this.  Love when something can be used for more than one purpose.  Yup, it's now on my order!!!

#19 MINI ZIG ZAG AND SCALLOP DOOHICKEY DIES
#816 SMALL MADISON WINDOW POPPYSTAMP DIE
Now this Hobbie I added some water color shading with distress inks to give him some dimension.  The Magnolia Papers can handle a little water coloring on them, or you could use chalk too!

Then I had to make something fun and easy by using checks and stars!  This one I also did a little water color shading with distress inks.

These were kind of like potato chips....one isn't going to do it!!!!  :)

I've heard from a few people that they think Hobbie looks like a dog too, so we certainly can use that to our advantage because he is soooo cute whatever animal he/she is!!!!

What a treat for the eyes! My favorite is the Get Well Soon card. I love each one, though. How very clever of you to use the patterned paper for Hobbie. You did a great job! **I still think Hobbie looks like a manatee** LOL!

XO,

Cutie Patootie. Oh gosh Patti Jo they look so adorable. How clever to make the patterned, it adds to the fun. Yes I can see he can sort of look like a dog too. Stunning cards, can't pick a favorite they are all so cute.

Patti Jo, you are just amazing. Brilliant idea. Reminds me of my very first sewing project in my first homec class in high school which was a stuffed frog made with pattern fabric--looked a lot like the red one. Terrific cards. Love the designs on all four.
Hugs,
Norma
