So in honor of the new season I used some new washi tapes to make a fall card. As I was finishing it up I noticed that this Teddy who sits on my desk would make a great prop to go with it, and I have a little story about him, too.
You may recall that we visited Ireland and Scotland earlier this summer, and I was so lucky to be able to meet my Hero Arts flickr friend Heather Maria. She took me on a walk all around Dublin and gave me a goodie bag with such thoughtful gifts, among them this Irish Fisherman Knit sweater that she knit for me, knowing that I'm a Teddy Bear collector. In thinking about fall, one of my favorite things is wearing big snuggly sweaters like this one. Thank you, Heather, once again - every time I look at this little guy with your sweater, I am transported back to your beautiful country! It's one of my treasures!
