I'm Beary Happy We're Friends For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge

Hello  Everyone! I've been wanting to use Teddy Bear Love Tilda ever since in came out!! The cute image brought back fond memories of when I use to collect Muffy Bears. One of the first Christmases my hubby and I celebrated together, my hubby bought the Christmas Edition Muffy Bear for me. He took it out of the box and put it under the tree for me to find.  He threw the box that it came in away not knowing that it should be kept!! Well, my hubby ended up writing the company to get me a replacement box.  He asked if he could please get one, so he could get out of the dog house. The company sent out a new box and wrote a sweet letter saying that they hoped the box would help him get out of the dog house. LOL!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the talented Deb. This week's challenge is Pretty Spring Pastels . I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of one of this week's wonderful prizes from Embellishments DE and Letraset.

For my card, I used Safari Girl Design Papers from Best Creation Inc. Teddy Bear Love Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I cut two frames using the Cindy Lou Cricut Cartridge <Frame - Heart>, one at 3 1/2" and the other at 3 3/4". I embossed the frames using Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The lace is from JoAnns. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, All Natural Accents and from my stash.

I feel "Beary Lucky" that you stopped by to visit me!!  Thank you for all the wonderful comments that you leave for me!  I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!!

Have a wonderful weekend!! I hope to see you again on Tuesday for the new Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge!!

Big Hugs,

Absolutely sweet and adorable card, Suzan! Love the soft pinks and yellow...and all the lovely Spring flowers. Your DP with all the teddy bear faces is just perfect for Tilda and her Teddy Bear Love! I like how you embossed your matting pieces. Cute story about your Muffy Bear and Mike inadvertently throwing out the box it came in! He's a sweetheart, just like you!

Love and Hugs,
