Friends make life Bear-able

Sharing this lovely Lili of the Valley image today with a sentiment I have, "Friends make life bear-able."  How sweet is that!  Thanks so much everyone for joining in  this month and playing with me.   I am trying to keep the winner list updated, if you see your name in BLUE print let me know, I probably either haven't marked you off or maybe I didn't get your email.  Either way, please double check with me to ensure I have  your info!

Question of the day, ???

What is your favorite card making size?

I tend to make square cards a lot, usually 6" or just a shade under so they will fit in my 6" envies.  Else I will do 4.25x5.5

You can check the current winner list HERE!

Darling card! Love the cute bear and the pretty embellishments!
I make A2 cards the most, 4.25" x 5.5"
I am also liking the slimline format to fit in a business envelope, although I haven't made one in ages! Have to do that again and just ordered some of the envelopes to have on hand.

New Creations said...

Bear-y cute! Love the beautiful matching embellishments you jazzed up!
My cards are almost 4.5" and 5.5"

Marjeta said...

This little bear is gorgeous and so is your card. I love 15X15 cm design and 11x16 cm.

Susan T. said...

Cute card, wonderful sentiment. The embellishments are perfect! I almost always do A2 (4.25x5.5).

Rachel Duong said...

This is a very cute bear. I love bears and dogs. Your card layout is awesome and the flower and butterfly embellishments are sweet.
I almost always make the 4.25 by 5.5 (A2) card size. Rarely I make smaller thank you notes but I buy envelopes in bulk so go with same size. Lately I have had fun with tags!

Pat said...

Oh I love love love the bear it is so adorable I am an A2 card girl sometimes A6 but most A2 and do not make square at all. Not crazy about square and they cost more to mail so you can not just mail

Billie Dee said...

Your talent is astonishing! I learned so much just by watching you. My favorite cards are a2 size.

KellysKardsFL said...

Your card is adorable! Who doesn't love a cute little teddy bear? I make A2 cards the most, 4.25" x 5.5" unless I have a package of card blanks and envelopes I need to use. I want to create some unique cards this year using different shapes and templates. I've been watching Mary from Cards TV and I have a few templates that I want to try.

Karthikha said...

Sweet adorable bear card :) I love to make A2 cards a lot, however I also go for custom sizes when I make fancy-fold and interactive card designs :) I measure everything manually and even create my own envelopes to fit the card once it is done.

Aaaaah, what a lovable bear. I primarily use A2 size but will make larger size if I have an envie for them. Hugs, Barbara

Audrey R said...

Hi Holley- friends and coffee are the perfect blend!!! Yay to friends! I mostly make A2, but I also buy the larger card/envelope sets from Michael’s and Joann’s as I have some larger die cuts that really need the larger card size.

Jackie T said...

Hi Holley this is such a cute card. I love the teddy. I like making square cards and I made them all sorts of sizes. Take care. Hugs Jackie

That little bear is just too cute! It's a really pretty card!

I actually make a variety of different cards, just not necessarily greeting cards. I enjoy making 4x6 postcards, ATCs, rolodex cards and tags for journals among others.

Twórcze pasje Danki said...

A wonderful card and a cute bear. I like the card size 1.48 x 1.48 cm.

Shelley said...

Oh my... I love that bear and that card! I like A2 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") for most "everyday" cards to keep in my stash and giveaway to groups but "special" cards where I have taken the time to colour a large image, I will generally make bigger (usually 5" x 7" at least).

Gaye said...

I like A2 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") for most of my cards. This sweet card and image is my kind of style.

Linda Simpson said...

Adorable card, love the sweet bear. I love making square cards from 6x6 to 8x8.
Hugs

Candy Meyers said...

Cute card. I mostly make A2 cards. once in a while I'll do a bigger one.

Frances Freeman said...

I always do a2. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I’m trying to do other sizes I actually did a 6x6 card yesterday. Wow so much more room to create!!!! I love your card holley!!!! Thank you again for chances to win

Linda S Vigil said...

Matching flowers and butterflies were great embellishments for the super cute bear! I typically make A2 size, really like when I find 5 x 6.5 card blanks to use. :)

Em Louise Fairley said...

That is so cute! 6 x 6 is my go to size too xoxo

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

If the card is going in the mail I make the 4.25 X 5.5, But I do like making square cards.

yvonne 3D said...

What a adorable card and lovely sentiment.My favourite card size is 20x20cm..

Karenladd said...

Holley, this is so adorable and I love that cute little bear! As for card sizes, I almost always make the A2 size that fits into standard card envelopes for mailing but I also make tall thin cards and an occasional square one.

StampNK said...

Your card is beautifully colored and so cute. The bear looks soft enough to cuddle. I usually make the 4.25 x 5 sized card for easy mailing but have made some of the larger 5 x 7 size in the past. I almost never make shaped cards and never do fancy folds because I am terrible at it. I make a lot of birthday and sympathy cards and they always have to be mailed so I stick with standard card sizes.

Christi said...

What a darling card! My favorite card size is 5 x 7 . not too small but not too big. My opinion

SHartl said...

I make cards in all sizes but don't usually make huge ones, lol. My kids like to make cards too and they go for big ones that allow room for lots of stamping, stickers and drawings. Most of mine are standard 4.25x5.5.

Dana M said...

Oh what a sweet and adorable card! I typically make A2 cards.

Suzanne H said...

I make either A2 or 5x7. I find it hard to make small cards. Love your bear!

Amy Martin said...

Awe!!! I love that bear!!! I usually make 4.25 X 5.5 but I do like doing different sizes from time to time. I can't believe this month is almost over. I love celebrating with you every year. You really are an inspiration Holley!!
Hugs

Jean said...

Simply darling! I usually make 5 x 7 cards.

Mel C said...

Your card is adorable, I love Lili of the Valley images! I make 4.25 X 5.5 and 5 x 7 cards mostly, but also like doing square shape about 5 inches.

Once postage went up so much for square cards, I now tend to make A-2 and Business letter size for my Julie nutting doll cards!

DJ said...

This card is so cute. I tend to make 4.25x5.5”
or 5x7” cards. I do make tags with my Julie Nutting doll stamps and they are always larger, usually 4-5.5 x 9-10”.

Shabneez said...

Cute creation Holley. I tend to use A6 or 6X6 sizes the most the moment. Shabneez x

Sweet little bear very lovely card.
Now I do A 6 size but

in the past i made very big square cards.They just find it difficult to get envelopes when i put lots of flowers and stuff.

Pat said...

I love this stamp, Lily of the valley went digi and I can not print them they fade when I try to color them. So sweet I love it would be awesome for my hats I make for chemo patients I add a tag on every one
