Bear Go Wild

As soon as I saw this Bear which is part of the Baby Zoo Animals set at KPM Doodles I knew exactly what I wanted to create. I was thinking… blue skies and a lovely big leafy tree and lush thick grass and my bear would be at home, so to speak! I used my Cricut to cut the tree, grass, clouds and sentiment. I purchased some Adhesive Springs from a stand at craft fair called Close to my Heart which apparently is a big stamping company in USA. I used this fabulous gadget to bobble my bears head and he literally does GO WILD! My girlfriend Vicki suggested the wobbly eyes to match his wobbly head when I was chatting with her on the phone this morning and voilà! I used my Copic marker to colour in the Spring component so it matched his head(see up close photo). What was I thinking only buying one packet…dear Santa please add some more of  these to my Christmas Stocking!!! I can’t stop playing with this card it’s so much fun wobbling!!!
