Grillin Bear and The Sweet Stop Sketch

Did everyone have a good week? We woke up to a little bit of snow here in South Texas this morning which is unheard of.  You would have thought it was Christmas morning as excited as the kids were.  It was also Daddy Bear's Birthday this week so I made this card for him with this image from Di's Digi Downloads (thanks Wendy for introducing me to them, love them!!)


I started with this weeks sketch at The Sweet Stop and used Grill Bear the perfect image for my Bear.  I distressed the edges  and then went over them with Walnut Distress Ink to give it the "burnt" look.
