Beary Special Card For Dad

At the last minute, I decided to pull together a Father's Day card that would be different from the "Love You... This Much" card that the girls Dad, NASA, watched them make for Papa. I originally planned to create some footprint art for his gift. I thought I would have the girls create a bear from their footprint inspired by one I saw on the blog Handprint & Footprint Art. It would say, "You are Beary Special." I know, super cute huh?

NASA takes the girls hiking and camping. They have come home telling me all about spotting bear scat. Oh joy! They thought a bear for his Father's Day card was awesome.

After doing the hands cut outs for the card they made Papa, I wasn't really in the mood to pull out the paint. I really should have planned better and done the Father's Day crafts on seperate sessions. I just didn't have the motivation and the girls didn't want to sit and wait, they wanted to keep working to finish all the crafts.  Since I already had the Cricut out for the "Love You," so I figured why not see about finding a bear.

The Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge has a teddy bear. I printed it out on brown card stock. The girls did the rest. Results: very adorable Happy Father's Day... You are Beary Special cards.

This beary special card could be used for any holiday.  Bears are never out of style.
