You really don't have to be young to find a friend in a teddy bear

I met this lovely lady at Water Aerobics. Her name is Joann. She's beautiful inside and out. WELL, I was having a melt-down and she was there offering her love and sympathy. I'm glad I met her and glad I call her friend. I found out she loves bears along with Paulette at Create with TLC and made this card for Joann. 

Create with TLC had this adorable teddy bear as a freebie on September 8th as September 9th was National Teddy Bear Day!!!  I dearly loved this image and just had to make him into a friendship card with adding a few buttons, ribbon, and a bow! I used to make teddy bears for people which were made with love and each had its own character even though they were all the same fabric - amazing how a little stuffing and placement of the face can change a whole project which is just like a card!!!

  • DCWV The Craft Stack is the background of my card which is a size A2
  • backgrounds were from my scrap drawers and chalked around the edges
  • Create with TLC Teddy Bear, had been a previous freebie, was colored with Prisma Markers and gel pens
  • Create with TLC "life is better with friends" sentiment, had been a previous freebie, corners were rounded with faux stitching around the edges and then chalked 

  • ribbon is Darice satin edged organza and placed on opposite corners
  • buttons, including my teddy bear was a button, were glued on the four (4) corners of the image
  • ribbon bow attached to bear's neck to finish
