Vintage Teddy by Doodle Pantry

I am a sucker for stuffed animals.  I still have several from my childhood.  When I buy one with the purpose of giving it to a grandchild, I end up keeping it for myself!  But to my defense, none of my grandchildren are very crazy about them so I can justify my keeping them.  And besides, then they can play with them when they are here. LOL
The styles of teddy bears have changed over time.  This vintage bear by Doodle Pantry reminds me of the original Winnie the Pooh.

  Don't get me wrong - I like the round, rolly polly version too.  After all, he is a stuffed animal - duh! 

But I love the old, vintage, realistic bear. The Vintage Bear set has been re-released which now comes with pre-colored images, sentiments, and papers.

I really like this pre-colored image. IRL the GKD Honey Mustard cardstock is right on with the bear coloring. Card base and back layer is GKD Chocolate Brown.
For the next card, I lightened up the coloring first before printing, giving the bear more yellow so the SU More Mustard cardstock was a better match but looks orange in the photo.

For both of these cards I used the sketch at Mojo Monday.

The buttons on the second card are die cut from Kraft, dictionary pages from the Kraft Outlet, and the More Mustard with a die by Memory Box. The natural hemp twine from Kraft Outlet is hands down my favorite twine.

Thanks for looking and have a Beary nice day.
