Love Card Using CTMH July SOTM Bear Hug with CTMH Mix In Paper

Hello friends!   I couldn't sleep so I decided to create more CTMH cards.  LOL!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I feel so sad for the people in the Ridgecrest area  after having two powerful earthquakes and over 100 aftershocks in just two days.  There was a lot of damage and some people lost their homes and everything they own.  We are very lucky to have only the rolling of the ground and some of the aftershocks; which is nothing compared to what they are going through.  The news said they could have aftershocks up to 6 months from those two big earthquakes.

I rarely have time to create with the CTMH Stamp of the month; so I am very happy that I was able to this month.  I created two with the same style; but the bears are different colors.  I didn't realize that black and brown bears could have  have white, brown or black cubs.  I did some research; which I normally do before coloring; so I can get an idea of what colors to use for my creations.  I stamped the images; but didn't like the colors; so I colored them with Copics as well.
