Build a Bear - Missionary Card

We had the sweetest missionary, Mary Meighan, come to our church one Sunday and it just so happened that we knew her from when my husband preached at the Plant City Church of the Nazarene. So my daughter and I wanted to make her a card. We were so happy to see her again. Well, I wanted to do a simple bear card - then my daughter got involved and she always works from the mind set that the sky's the limit. I kept saying I don't have that on a cartridge and she'd just reply, "Mom, you just cut it by hand." Okay, silly me. When Mary was in Paupa New Guinne she worked as a nurse. So I made the nurse bear (I had a die for that) and my daughter made the tribe bears. Who Mary assured us actually did dress like this. I hope you like our card.
The bears are all cut from the Stamp-in Up Build A Bear Die along with the nurses outfit.
The tribe bears outfits and accessories were hand cut, drawn and colored by my daughter, Danée.
I hand wrote the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless
