Friends Make Everything Bearable

I've been watching the Teddy Bear Stampers for awhile and looking at all my lovely teddy bears sitting on my shelf begging to be inked. The first challenge card I made was for the Summer Bear challenge -- 'cept I missed the deadline - so this time I am posting earlier! This challenge card is for Love My Teddy -- and you can see that not only do I love my teddy, but he loves me!
The Wired Angel's inspired flower idea makes a great stopper for this easel card. Go have a look at her tutorial. And, if you visit Crafty Ann's, she has shape easel templates to download as well as some great examples of easel cards. In addition, Crafty Ann's challenge this week is to make an easel card -- so I've finally made a card that fits more than one challenge! The teddy bear was colored with prismas and OMS, hearts are embossed. Thanks for your comments -- they are always so uplifting and make everything bearable!

Other stuff I used: Stamps: PSX, Stampin' Up, Stampendous, DeNami;
Martha Stewart Border Punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, gold pen, Emaginations punch, little foam hearts, gems.
