Isn't this cute little bear from Dustin Pike so adorable. To me he is day dreaming of a Dear Sweet Friend! So I had to add him to a card and share those thoughts with a friend too!

I used my Copics again, yea!! While they are still intimdating, I pledge to keep trying! For this fellow I used E 40 E70 E71 E74 E77 and B93 B95 B97 and C0.

I made the little dangle hanging from the ribbon, the silver bead reminder me of butterfly wings, matching the wings on the bear! I distressed the edges of the blue layer a bit, that was new for me...I like how it softened it and helps the layer tie in with the fade on the swirl paper...I mean the butterfly trail paper...(or are they Flutter~bear trails, LOL)
Finally I add a few teeny tiny brown pearls for a touch of sweetness.

Well I over came my fears and I played with my Copics!
Every evening this week after work I could be found coloring on my TV tray, trying to be ever soooo careful and a little nervous! (Ok a lot nervous!)LOL

I fell in love with these adorable images from Bugaboo, I just couldn't resist them...I mean look at them, could you?!?!?! LOL
I started with the freebie, and added in the four others for the collection!

I decided to make them into a 4x4 note card set which I will be giving them to my dear mother in law!

I used a textured ivory paper for the base of the set of cards, then for each card I used a different paper from the Simply Delightful stack from My Mind's Eye. I used a pink polka dotted paper from the same stack as a base under each image to tie them together along with a sheer teal ribbon across the front for each card and the lid of the box.

Since I am giving this set as a gift to be used as note cards, I wanted to keep the embellishments simple and low key and flat, so they can be easily mailed.

I hope she enjoys them and I and I hope you do too! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
