To beloved friend

 My niece asked me to help her make some cards for her friends. We'll start to make them Tomorrow but before that I thought I make one for sample :o) I saw similar pencil topper in one blog but 'cause I was sure I'm not gonna make it, I didn't bookmarked it. So sorry. I think it was with very cute mouse. I don't remember exactly and couldn't find it anymore :(
Anyway... Here is my version of the pencil topper. I think it is lovely gift and card together that second-grader could make to her friends :o) Background paper is made by myself in my loyal computer. I wrote bunch of adjectives to describe a friend and put them in different font style. I turned out great, even if I have to say it myself :o) I like it. 
I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circles to cut out the base of the card, db Craft border punch, I think it is called Fence, Not sure though, and Heyda Butterfly punch for butterflies :) The bear image is stamped with Variousstempel Teddys stamp and Memento Tuxsedo black ink. For coloring I used all kind of different mediums, regular felt pens, metallic gel pens and atYouSpica markers (pink, red and black). I did some water coloring with felt pens :) Also some liquid Perls, two brads from Dovegraft (Berry) and some red shiny string from my stash.

Text says "Best friend"

Back side of the card/pencil topper

Every time I see someone using a postal stamp like sentiment on the card I am amazed. The are so gorgeous. I'm sad that I don't have them. I don't see any point to buy them either 'cause they are in English or other languages. I want them in Estonian. So I made one in my computer. What else could I do, I wanted it so bad :o) I like it. The one on the cards says "to beloved friend"

I'd like to participate in following challenges:
I think that love between friends is very important 'cause best friends stay with you forever. It is important to share your love to them :) Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Challenge #107 - Love is in air; Joanna Sheen Challenge - Love is in the air; PaperPlay Challenges - week 6 - Love letter. In Estonia, Valentines Day is not only for lovers, it is for friends too. We call it Sõbrapäev (Friends Day)  The Sisterhood of Crafters - Valentines. Because I made my own Background paper I'd like to participate in DRS Designsblog - Challenge 11 - Make your own background paper. I'm sure my lovely little Teddy girl is suitable for Moving Along With the Times Challenge #135 - Cute gritter. A big inspiration for the card was Crafts 4 Eternity - Raspberry delight. Ooh, so sweet picture to inspire :o) I want to eat it :) I don't like to play Bingo (the lottery) 'cause I win more then I don't buy the ticket but sure love to participate in Bingo challenges Anything Challenge - Challenge #60 - Bingo board (Animals, your choice - die cuts/punches and stitching (faux). And one more challenge CC Monthly Challenge - Challenge #21 - Anything goes.
That's it for this week :o) Hope to be here next week with another card.

Oh, one more thing... At Prairie Fairy Stamps is a very sweet Valentines candy offer. Check it out :) So what I love.... I try to make it short :o) I love my family and friends, animals, nature, walking in the forest with my dog. I love water and anything related with it. I love to make handmade cards and to send postcards (see my other blog I love computer graphic and animations. And chocolate, chocolate and one more time... chocolate :o)
