5/5 Bear-y Springy!

I know it's finally Spring in Minnesota when the S'more Displays start coming out on the end caps of the grocery story aisles . . . and they stay on display from just before Memorial Day through Labor Day! haha! We Minnesotans are big on S'mores. In fact . . . my three girls have a beloved pet cat who they named "S'more." Yes, we are devoted to that wonderful campfire treat. (The inside of the card features the big mosquito that is a part of this stamp set. I had to stamp that little bugger just for a reality check as mosquitoes are an unwelcome guest at nearly every campfire activity in MN!)
To really give the s'more dimension on my card, I put Crystal Effects on the candy bar and white liquid applique heated with a heat gun on the marshmallow. I have the bear coming out from behind a Top Note frame and to accent the frame, I dashed some lines all around it with a brown sharpie. The bear and graham crackers are colored with Watercolor Crayons and an Aqua Painter. I am very new to using Watercolor Crayons and I know I need a lot more practice with them. One think I really liked about using them was that all the Earth Element colors were contained in one convenient tin - I didn't have to have several ink pads open on my desk as I usually do when I am using my Aqua Painter.

I had to put a picture of our "S'more" for you to see. The reason the girls named him "S'more" is because he has a streak of white along the top of his back and it reminded them of how marshmallow squeezes out of your s'more treat as you eat it!

This is sooo cute and I love your commentary. I grew up in the Twin Cities so I have many (not so fond) memories of mosquitos and not just around the campfire. Your s'more looks so real...you just want to take a bite. Thanks for sharing.
