The second card with the snow boarding bear is my favorite bear! But I love the 1 with the broken leg, it would be GREAT for a get well card! Your cards are beautiful and happy that your daughters got to makes cards too!

Well, first of all I can see talent runs in the family with the stamping and artistic expertise. But those images are certainly great. I especailly love the card you did with the cute bear on crutches. That is perfect for a "cheery" card when someone has had a falling down. Thanks for sharing.

Your cards are so cute! I love the bling swirls on the first one and what a great male card for the second one. My favorite bear is the sledding bear, but the snowboard bear is a close second!
