Poor Teddy, He’s my Best Friend

felt with the heart

Squigglefly’s first challenge for 2011. The theme is “Put your Heart into it” so you need to use an image that has a heart or you can add your own hearts. We had some NEW images released on Saturday so if you would like to see them you can click here and see the New ones and all the other ones as well. My images is called Love’s Healing Hands by Cheryl Alger. Now if you join tagged your cards SFC#80. Up load you card at Squigglefly Blog.

Me and ny Teddy copic colors

These are the copics I used use to color my image. I started to to it this way because I have several project going at one time so this way I can keep track of what colors I use. I personally do not know if it matter to you to know what colors I use, let me know if you really do not care or if you like to know? I have been to a lot of other blogs and I have seen that they are not putting the colors that they use on there images and when I see something that is colored really nice and I wonder what colors they used I would like to know, so I would like to know if you also would like to know???

felt heart close up

Here is a close up of the image I colored. I not real happy with her hair, but I love the way Teddy turned out. Sometimes I get the hair just fine and sometimes I have a problem.

felt heart upper right side

felt heart bottom

Here I have the top and the bottom of the card. The sentiment is a stamp from Stampabilities. I have soo much ribbon and I trying to use some of it up so you are going to see a lot of ribbon on my cards. The beaded hearts I have had for a long time so I do not know where I got them from but I thought they worked well with the card. The orange hearts are the sticky ones you get like stickers. There is now reason for the layout of the card, I wanted to use the scrapbooking paper because I liked it and I have so much and I need to use more papers on my cards.

Thanks for stopping by. I hoped you like my card. Have a wonderful week.

A Request From One Of Our Chaplains in Afghanistan.


Posted: 09 Jan 2011 08:07 AM PST

Please ask as many as possible to continue to pray for us.  It has

been a mild winter thus far, and so the fighting has continued.  Please

keep us lifted up before the Lord as we finish out these last 4 months.

April 2011 is getting closer.

I am including two pictures.  One is of a mountain near here that

finally has snow on it, and the other is of our flag in the sunset.

Both of these were taken with the last view of 2010.

MTN 2010

Flag 2010

Thank you again for everything,


It gets very cold in Afghanistan this time of year you can see in the mountains. I know I would not want to be in those mountains. So our man and woman are in need of our prayers so please remember to keep them in our thoughts and prayers every day.

Hugs, Patricia
