Bear's Best Friend

    So I have to ask, if kids love teddy bears and consider them to be 'best friends,' why shouldn't a bear-child have a teddy bear best friend?  That was my first thought when I spotted this image over at QKR Stampede, where their theme this challenge is "Friends are special."


I based my colors on the theme at CAS-Colors & Sketches.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  Everything is matted with daffodil yellow CS.  The slate gray background piece is embossed with a folder from Sizzix.  I added a bit of twine and three buttons since this is a masculine card and it didn't need a lot of frills.  I thought it would be perfect for a young boy's birthday card.

     Challenges:
2 Sisters -- Embossing
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards -- Teddy bears
Crafty Little Fairies -- For the boys
Crafty Hands -- Embossed background
Created with Love -- Friends
Totally Gorjuss -- String's the thing

     This is supposed to be my post for tomorrow but I'm posting it now because I can't get Blogger's scheduler to work.  Sigh.  You don't mind seeing it a bit early, do you?  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Blogger does that on occasion - and it's so frustrating! BUT, I'm glad you posted it now because it's precious! Love your coloring on these little guys and the colors of the card. Very cute.

Awwwwww, so adorable, Connie. I love that daffodil yellow. Speaking of daffodils, mine are about to open. I can see the yellow in the blooms now. Yea!

I think this would be a super card for a young boy.
