Friends of Unity Blog Hop March 2023~ Winnie The Pooh

Hello, friends! Welcome to our March FOU Blog Hop all about Pooh and his friends!

"You don't spell love, you feel it." And the greatest of these is love...

Did you know Winnie the Pooh was named after a real life black bear and a swan? Awesome, huh!?

My first card uses the adorable Oh, dear set. I was completely inspired by a card Angie Blom made cutting the sentiment through the tree. Takes a bit of masking, but so easy to achieve! I paired it with that fun Oh Hello! sentiment and a line element stamp from the set Full of Surprises.

I love this card, but I do wish I hadn't colored Pooh so dark. He blends in too much with the tree. I may lighten him up a bit, yet. 

This next card uses the sweet Pooh & Piglet set A Splendid Place. I love this sentiment from this set.

What I love most about this image is how lovingly Piglet is looking at Pooh. Sigh...

Can I just be real? I am not really confident in creating with cutesy stamps like this. I think it's creating the scene around the image that I find challenging sometimes. And that is ok! Still fun!

On the Unity website I absolutely love the card both Alaine and Angie Blom made using this stamp set. I am so inspired by Alaine's Copic coloring and Angie's watercoloring.

I hope you’ll  join our Pooh cue and create some new cards to share in Unity Show & Tell! Please, TAG ME if you do. I would truly love to see them!

My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!

As always~

Thanks for spending time with me today!

It brings me so much joy sharing my thoughts and creations with all of you!

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!

  1. Beautiful cards, Bobbie Sue! Love your awesome watercoloring!

  2. Your Pooh cards are so adorable. I love your watercolor technique and the masking of the tree to add a sentiment in the middle. Super fun and I love the tiny Pooh up in the tree!

  3. Fabulous cards, beautifully colored. I love the masking technique for a sentiment.

  4. I'm new to Pooh and cannot get over the sweet sentiments. I think the tree going up into the clouds is interesting.

  5. WOW! Gorgeous coloring! I LOVE Pooh and the tree one is just stunning!

  6. Your cards are so beautiful! I love your watercoloring talent and the Pooh Bear cards are perfect for that coloring technique. Your love and warmth are always conveyed so well with your creations.

    1. Always a joy to hear from you, friend! I miss you on social media!! Sure hope you received my last card in the mail!

    2. I did receive your most beautiful card! It is displayed prominently in my studio so that I can see it often. Thank you so much! I miss our interactions and sharing on social media too. I am on MeWe.

    cuddly and cute!

  8. Fantastic cards! I love the coloring in both.

  9. I love the way you colored each card. And especially Pooh on the 2nd card. He looks so real!! Gorgeous.

  10. These are so cute. I love the vintage sort of look of them. Another thing I love is your bold statement of your faith under your photo. I also have chronic pain, and do my best to minimize it, and not notice it. Crafting is good.... :)

    1. Crafting is so good for chronic illness. So happy you also have crafting to help you through. Hugs.

  11. Great card!! I especially love “oh,hello”

  12. Very cute cards you have created! I love the one with Pooh in the tree. I agree with you on finding it challenging to create the scenes-it’s hard for me too.

  13. Love these images with the trees! Beautiful cards!

  14. I just can't get enough of these adorable cards!😁

  15. These pooh cards are all so beautiful. Love that tree! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Love how you colored these cute Pooh cards.

  17. Hi There! I read your post on the Unity blog from today under the Tuesday Thoughts, Inspired by “Simple Words” just now. It totally resonated with me. Thank you! I don’t do Facebook or Instagram, but I will read a blog and comment now and then, so I came to find you and say hello. I love your lilac card over there. These Pooh cards are great, too. Nise G.

    1. Nise, thank you so much for sharing this with me. Look forward to your next visit! Blessings!

As part of your VIP experience, you will stop at a fantastic vantage point to see the spectacular sunset over the desert. This is the perfect time to take beautiful pictures that will serve as priceless memories of your desert adventure.
