  Who doesn't love a teddy? So here is a card with a teddy and hearts.
   I formed a square card and then scored and folded one half of the card to form the easel mechanism. On each of the rectangles formed on the front of the card and on the square base of the card I matted and layered pink heart design paper and red mirri card.
   I cut a strip of red mirri card using Spellbinders edgeabilities dies and matted it onto pink core'dinations cardstock to form a stop for the easel. A mini heart was stuck in each corner and a red bow in one.
   I cut a heart out of red mirri card using the template I had created for one of my earlier posts and fixed this to the lower fold of the easel. I made another template of a slightly smaller heart and used this to cut a heart out of pink core'dinations cardstock. This I attached to the red heart. A mini heart and a bow were fixed to the bottom of the pink heart.
   The stamped image is from Crafter's Companion romance set of Popcorn the Bear stamps and I coloured it using Promarkers. I then cut it out, shaped it slightly and fixed it with glue gel to the pink heart.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafter's Companion - hearts
   Penny Black and More - love is in the air
   Send A Smile 4 Kids - valentine 4 kids
   Ooh La La - easel card
   I Love Promarkers - add a bow
   Crafty Cardmakers and More - bear with me
