Teddybo Challenge

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

I am off work today so taking it easy !! Not been working long in this job and still not sure what I am doing yet lol !! So tired as was off for a few months and it's hard getting back into a routine lol !!

This is my last post as a DT for Teddybo as I just don't have the time they deserve with my new job ! Teddybo will always be in my fond memories as Gayle the owner gave me my first DT position and I have grown to love the bears and all the wonderful talented girls on the DT .

There is a new challenge at TEDDYBO which is to use Black white and one other colour !
 I wasn't too sure at first so stayed neutral with brown !! and am quite happy with the results.

There are lovely new graphics to play with at the Teddybo Shop !!!
 and lots of inspiration on the blog from the girls !!

 I have chosen Teddybea_215 which I coloured with pencils using lots of lovely shades of browns !
I stamped some hero arts flowers at the sides . My printer was playing up and printing black green so I looked it up and cleaned the heads and hey presto and to my relief it's working again ! Before I had fixed it I had to use distress ink black soot on some white card for the panels ! I have also used Basic Grey Kraft paper pad .

 I embossed cuttlebug corner dies with a craft concepts dots folder and then added bows with this gorgeous spotty ribbon from my local sewing shop ! Just round the corner from my new work is a craft shop and a sewing shop how lucky am I though it's not good for the bank balance lol !
I found this super digi sentiment  here ! I put a Magnolia Vintage tag behind it and added lots of stardust stickles all over the card !! I finished with some lace ribbon and black roses from eBay . 

I used the super sketch by Chantal at Sketchy Challenges no . 30 for inspiration it was fun to work with and I would like to enter this challenge !!

Hope your all having a super week ! 
Lots of Crafty Hugs

  6. Hi Kirsty-Anne,
    Sorry to hear you had to give up your DT position, but it sounds like you have a fulfilling job, so that's great! Very pretty card; love all the dots and the Stardust stickles; I used to do those dots before I got to know liquid pearls, but somehow it's easier to get the shape right with the stickles, I think.

    Take care!


    P.S. Thanks for playing with the Sketchy Girls.
