Punched Bear Valentine

I made this bear for one of my workshops, with very little stamping, AND for my husband lol! I've already made my valentine gift, yeah! I made a second bear, changed colours and voila a baby box. I found this bear on the Paper Punch Addition site but do you think I could find it again, noooo! I looked forever and never found it again. Its fast and easy but I certainly can't lay claim to creating it, just changing the colour and putting it on a mini pizza box. Too cute!
I've entered this into Lexi's Creations which is to use bears, Critter Sketch which is to use an animal, Cards for Men, Secret Craft Saturday Challenge, Crazy 4 Challenges, and Stampin' for the weekend, all which are a valentine/love, Moving Along with the Times which is to use red.
