Grin and "Bear" It

I love the Winston Bear birthday stamp set from Newton's Nook. I think he just looks so puzzled as in how can I possible be having another birthday!
One of my favorite zoo animals is the panda. I stamped Winston on a stitched tag die cut from Paper Smooches and colored him like a panda in black and white with colored pencils. The party hat and gift are separate stamps in the set. They were colored and then cut out and glued in place. I used a couple of green patterns from my scrap box for the backgrounds to make you think of bamboo forests where pandas live.
I used this sketch from Newton's Nook
Also linking up to The Challenge. Their sketch is so close to the Newton's Nook I decided I could use the same card.


  1. Cute card, Donna! That bear really does look like he doesn't believe he could possibly be having another birthday. Aren't tags fun to use on cards?

  2. What a darling, panda bear; and I adore that innocent, little sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Challenge!

  3. LOL! I'm so glad you like Winston's expression. I do think he always looks a bit confused, doesn't he? Love your card - coloring him like a panda was a great idea!Thank you so much for linking up to our Inky Paws Challenge!
