Thoughtful Thursday ~Thinking of You!

Good morning my crafty friends!  Today is Thoughtful Thursday over at My Creative Time!  I love when I'm on the schedule for this since I never have enough "thinking of you" cards.  Nor do I ever have enough cards that can be used for men.
Now you are probably thinking...this card has a teddy bear on it, how could this be a "man" card?  Well I think even "manboys" :) like teddy bears!  hehehe

Sometimes I find it amusing that a card in person looks really great, however in pictures it doesn't always translate...that's what I think happened here.  In these pictures the blue and white polka dots is a bit harsh on the eyes, but not in person.  So weird!

To make the "hi" banners I cut one "banner" die from Vintage Stitched Label Die and cut it in half.  After stamping the letters I glued it to the Stitched Capture Frame with Arrow Die then re cut it with the Stitched Capture Frame with Arrow Die to create the stitched lines on the banners.

For the bear heart I colored with copics then added a tiny bit of glossy accents.

Liz your card is so sweet and you are so right about it being for a guy.
My sweet hubby is a man-boy and he loves teddy bears, puppets, and toys period. I love the little story you told re: your card. Your card will definitely warms the heart of whomever receives it. You are such a thoughtful and loving gal. Thanks always for your sweet stores and sharing your God given talents.
