One of my favorite new stamp sets from the 2008 Fall Winter Idea Book and Catalog is the Under the Stars stamp set (#111556, $29.95).
So when planning for the Sock Monkey PJ Party - I felt the Bear from this stamp set should join us. I had been seeing several cards that featured the bear holding a sign. I fell in love with them - very clever.
Here's my Birthday Wish Bear:
