One Crazy Stamper - Popcorn the Bear

Woo Hoo!! Remember the scene from "The Jerk" ... "the new phone books are here.. the new phone books are here"!! (oh man.. am I dating myself with that That's kind of how I feel today!! Today is the first day of the very first challenge at One Crazy Stamper DT blog!! (the new phone books are here!!) You are going to be hating me all day when you can't get the image of Steve Martin out of your head!!
So here's a cute image to replace that one with.. how about Popcorn the Bear?

Awww!! Now isn't he just the cutest? I love his best friend the duck Souffle (I had to google to find his name)
I just love this paper from Kaiser Craft!! It's called Flutterby and you'll be seeing it again as it is now one of my all time fav's!! It's red (yep, my fav color) and it's shabby chic (another fav) and underneath Popcorn there are also butterflies (my daughter's fav!!). This stamp set also comes with those three snowflakes I added to the paper and embossed with white. Those flourishes in the paper make it look like they're swirling those snowflakes around! It also comes with an additional section of holly that can be popped up. Here's a close up of that:

Popcorns Fur: E30, E31, E33
Coat and Hat: R39, R29, R27, B00, BG000
Souffle: Y11, Y08, Y17
Sack: E13, E15, E17
Holly: YG67, YG63, YG03, R08

Dana, this card is amazing! i love that the stamp comes with extra holly for popping it up. how smart is that!!! i love the added snow flakes on the paper, another smart move!!
The Jerk was one of my fave movies when I was younger. you dated us both,
"I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it."

sorry for taking so much space but you reminded me of the movie!
