"Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A tubby, little cubby, all stuffed with fluff.
He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
A willy, nilly silly old bear."

Let's head on it to the Hundred Acre Woods and visit with this Silly Old Bear!

And so... I took a lot longer than normal to come up with an idea... I owe lots of people lots of cards, so I thought I'd whittle down that I-O-them U pile. A couple of weeks ago, we had the SCS Junior Olympics (swimming) at Riverside City College (in Southern California). A bunch of us "officiated" (AKA: refereed), and dripped sweat quite a bit. I know... TMI... But dang it! insert word of choice here... It was hot! And during a break, a wonderful lady official went out of her way to go to the store to get all the rest of us... ICE CREAM! What a doll!!!! Then I asked her for her physical address and now she probably thinks I'm a total kook, because she hasn't gotten anything in the mail and she DID give me her address... So... I designed this card with her in mind! (in Cricut Design Space, of course!)

I've totally been trying to use/utilize my scraps! Make the most of them! Save that tree!!!! (and just so you know in case you don't remember me telling you before you can move your cut around on the mat in Design Space before cutting, so the placement is perfect for you.)
All of these pieces, even the teeny tiny ones... will go together to make my card.
OMGosh! It totally sucks when you've been way too busy to clean as you go and your table looks like this and you can't find a thing and you have to use another adhesive than you planned on and it gets so slippery...
This is how little Winnie is getting layered. I am so thankful Cricut artists are thoughtful enough to design in the lines to line up our cuts! Otherwise, I'd flippin' be there for.ever! and still never get a thing done!
And don't believe everything that is demonstrated at a srapbooking show! See that sleeve? It's already lifting up! Soooo... I used my handy dandy brayer to get it all down. Works like a charm...
until this happens and stuff like icecream slides all over the place.
And through it all together and brayer it all together and there she is all together and ready to roll! or get mailed... FINALLY!
A little close-up... Shhh... he's sleeping!

 Up next is there is no "up next"... but you can start at the beginning with Connie, as I'm the last bit. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoyed your time in the 100-Acre Wood. Be sure to comment, and come back again!
