Farewell Lovely Lady!

The crafting world recently lost a beautiful soul when Amanda Reed passed away suddenly. I didn't know Amanda personally but enjoyed "meeting" her on several card sites & admiring her beautiful work. She was always kind when commenting on my cards & made me giggle on more than one occasion. She will be sadly missed in the crafty world!  Polka Doodles offered this adorable bear to make cards in Amanda's honor. I colored mine with copics (after coloring this I saw a great image done using dots for the bears looked amazing & I will definitely try it next time!) My DP is Primrose Dots by Bo Bunny & CS is Bazzill. The heart circle die & flowers & flourishes dies are by Spellbinders & the little heart brad up in the corner is Peebles. So, farewell lovely lady. The craft world will not be the same without you!
