Welcome back!  Yesterday was a good mail day since I received my newly purchased Avery Elle Birthday Bus stamp and die set.  I think it was just released last month (mid-May).  When I saw this online, I thought, "Wow, a fun birthday bus!"

I'm excited about today's project since I get to play with Lawn Fawn You're Claw-some and my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pen.  This stamp set reminded me when I used to spend hours playing claw games in hopes of winning a stuffed animal.  Inspired by that special memory, this will be my first "masculine" card.

Good Monday Morning!  I'm happy today for being able to finish this Beary Birthday Card.  The last card I made was back in April.  The cute little bears are from recently released Lawn Fawn You're Claw-some.
