Not Quite Cross Stitch Bear

How's that for post title? I am stumped and that's the best I can come  up with. Today is the last day of Some Odd Girl Hol-odd-day hop and I want to show this cutie patootie one more time.

This time, I used my aida cross stitch fabric and back the bear with a cushy tick felt, so when you touch the bear it kind of cushiony. :)

The yummy background is the herringbone background from Becky Oehlers (for Gina K. Designs) You Say Goodbye, I Say 'Ello set. Love, love, love that background and especially in this color combo, swoon... And, I think by making the scarf & hat in neon colors it really pop the bear and make this card a super happy card. I am entering this card to Moxie Fab Keen on Neon challenge.

Only the bear part is made of cross stitch fabric. The rest is paper. Love it when I get to combine material like this. Am also entering this card for Paper Crafts December holiday challenge. 

Sigh... this bear cute face reminds me of my sweet  trouble maker, Eli. I know, he's a pug, but as his mama, I think he's cute just like the polar bear. Hah... Enjoy your Thursday, peeps!
