James Bear with butterflies

I have always been very fond of teddies, so a teddy bear has to be my favourite animal.   I have collected quite a lot of them over the years and I still have my very first teddy – from more than 60 years ago.  In this image James Bear  looks like a cuddly teddy, so I’ve made this card for one of my granddaughters.  Although this James isn’t really an Easter image I thought it was suitably Spring like, and I’ve used my butterfly die to link in with the butterflies on the stamp.

  1. Alison, this is so sweet! I’m a bear collector so I surely understand the love of teddies and your details are just fabulous. Thanks so much for joining our Use a Sentiment Challenge at TEW. xxD
