A Beary Good Lesson

I was inspired by the FarmQuest Challenge where the theme is 'Bears.'  Again, a fun country theme I couldn't pass up!  What's more country than fishing?  This bear seems to be reeling them in!  Still plenty of time to play along!  

I was inspired to create an Index Journal Card for my Journal Box.  Here is a pic of the back of the card where there is plenty of room to journal some thoughts!  My thoughts are about fishing and how some days one really needs patience!  Seems I've needed more lately and these are some feelings I might want to explore through some journaling!

Wondering how I put this together in Cricut Design Space?  Check out the video below!
