TeddyBea !! Puppy Love !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Wow what a stunning day the sun is shining away !! In order to restore my crafty inspiration I just needed a Teddybo image and a visit to Hobbycraft and hey presto my imagination is running wild !! So I am looking forward to a crafty afternoon tomorrow !!

I made this on Monday and just getting round to posting as Mr Blogger was very naughty and would not let me post !!! This weeks challenge at Teddybo is Teddybea only so many cool pics to choose from !! I picked Teddybea_024 . How cute is she !!!

I find it so easy and enjoyable to colour her. I thought |I would make a card quite simple and more modern.

I love this shape of card I got the inspiration from one of my favourite blogs. I have cut a bone shape and painted it with crackle paint and then distressed with the distress ink antique linen ! I made these tiny pink flowers and hearts with a tiny cuttlebug die. I popped a tiny pearl in the centre quite pleased with the result ! I have been looking at flower punches there are so many to choose from !! I had a go at embossing my sentiment with clear powder and my heat gun will try it again but with a darker ink lol ! I love playing with different products and techniques , definitely takes a few more goes to get it right though lol !

If you have not been over to their blog you must visit, I was laughing so much at the fact the designer makes the bears pose so she can draw them !! Love their sense of humour ! Also one of my favourite blogs for inspiration is having the most stunning vintage candy to win so why not pop over and have a look just click on the picture below to take you to Tab's cool blog and candy !!! If you visit her etsy shop be warned !! you will want to buy everything !!
