Bear’s Paw Succulent and Hugs, Thinking of You, Paw-some Friend Cards

Hello all! I’ve found another old post in my ‘drafts’ folder and have finally gotten it polished off for you… These were some sweet gift sets I made up last year when I found some ADORABLE Bear’s Paw succulents and put them in some cute cactus shot glasses from Dollar Tree and paired them with some stuffed bears and a handmade card to make some sweet and encouraging gift sets for some beary pawsome friends. First up a set for a special couple needing encouragement:

Awww! That sweet Pink & Main bouquet on the front of the card is colored with some fabulous shimmery Shuttle Art Gel Pens and a hand-drawn edge.

The inside has some cute Pink & Main stamps to match the gift, too…

I’m just head-over-paws in love with those darling bear’s paw succulents (Cotyledon tomentosa)! Aren’t they just TOO cute?!!

Of course, this post was done in March last year (I TOLD you I was backlogged!). Today I stopped by mom and dad’s and saw how much they have grown in such a short time:

This set went to a single friend, so there’s just one bear inside…

 

Supplies used:

  • Pink & Main stamp sets: Fur Ever, Grandma’s Lace, Mini Faces Set 1, and Thinking of You Always
  • Shuttle Art Gel Pens

And, I had this darling interlocking ‘hugs’ card for another friend:

Supplies used:

  • Concord & 9th Hugs Card die
  • Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs stamp set
  • Essentials by Ellen All Inside stamp & die and Bear Hugs die
  • DCWV The Butterfly Garden stack cardstock
  • Hero Arts ombre ink pads: ombre dolphin ; pink to red;
  • Tsukineko Memento Rich Coocoa dye ink
  • Copic Markers C1 E 13, 33, 71; R20

I hope you enjoyed these Pawsitively darling little treats!

pps: UPDATE: Dad finished his radiation treatments Friday. YAY!! Doc said it’ll probably take a couple of weeks for the side effects to resolve. She’ll see him in 5 weeks and then order tests – likely a PET scan – to be done at 8-10 weeks. Meanwhile he’s to exercise, eat well, exercise and stay healthy so his body can clear out all the irradiated cells. We’re looking forward t a good report!

Hope you’re all staying healthy and sane in these crazy times.😉

  1. What a sweet set of gifts and cards, and wonderful tie-in with the bear paw succulents! You have such a knack at putting themed gifts together. Love that your parents’ succulents have been thriving,and I’m sure they think of you each time they see it. Great news about your dad and well, and I’ll be hoping for continuing good reports as he is followed.

    I’m glad to see you back on the blog, even though your projects are from awhile back. Life has thrown you some curve balls lately, but your creativity still shines through!
