A Quirky Bear Challenge

A Quirky bear Challenge? Now, be honest, you were thinking Bare weren't you! No, don't be silly...don't want to scare the cat!
Here tis.. This weeks Quirky Forum Challenge is... Teddy Bears or in my case it's just a Bear...ah see, twas easy! Bet you guessed! The challenge was set this time round by Deanne, Mrs Quirky Boots herself!! Pop over to Deanne's Blog to see her lovely Bear Gift Tags! And while you're blog hopping, pop over to Debbies and see how she altered a mini dart board cover into some thing quite amazing! The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs are sponsoring the Challenge so you could be in with a chance to win two of Debbie's lovely stamps!
I had quite a few 'bears' but I hadn't done a decoupage for ages, so I decided to use this Forever Friends. If you're good, I might do another card later in the week just to remind you about the Challenge. This card is either going to be put by for Father's Day's Birthday (sshhh! don't tell him! and wow!! I'll be early for once!!)
The Paper's were freebie downloads from PaperCraft Inspirations ages ago called My Garden but you can still download them HERE. The embossed topper is actually another smaller card, which I cut down a bit so I could put another message inside. It's kept closed by that little brad. Not sure I like that pink border though, should've stuck with something green, but I can always change it later. Think I might go for the 'Gone to Seed' tag instead, which you can also down load along with same matching papers...(I know 'Pop' will tick me off about that pun!!) I used my Quickuts for the word 'Dad' and the font inside the card is a Freebie. It's called 2peas goofball and you can download it HERE and even more '2peas' freebie fonts can be found HERE
No! !!! I did use a 2peas font in the inside of the Jammy Tilda card below...(but I didn't show you the inside) They are very similar fonts... The font used in this card and in the picture above is called SwingSet BB and you can download is for free HERE (sorry about that!)
