One Teddy - many challenges

Hello Everyone,

Am I sad that the dirt is not here...or happy that it rained....both....but at least I had the afternoon to potter in the garden..mine this ime..and planted some veges in pots, and flowers around the place...did the lawn edges and swept up..just before the rain came...so was forced inside to my craft space...which made me happy...and played.

One teddy image...so many challenges...for me it is a lot, I usually do 2 at a time...and that is a struggle to make it work.



There he is...a cute teddy from Jen's Designs...



Coloured with pencils...papers from paper craft magazine freebie..'Sweet Wishes' punched butterflies and flowers, stampin up sentiment,freebie balloons suspended on wire to make height and they fold flat for posting...and the yummy icing is puff fabric paint with glitter...



The matting..butterflies..and sentiment..I use an old manilla folder again as I couldnt find any cardstock I liked...

Okay...now onto links for challenges...

Ready-teddy-go  [punch it out]

Sentimental Sundays  [anything goes]

Forever friends  [sentiment]

Raise the bar  [furry friends]

One stop Craft  [anything goes]

Totally papercrafts  [animal]

There you go...all link tested...all ready to go...are you impressed...I am, but now I need another coffee...that was exhausting...lol...then I'm off to work....yay...window day......mmmmm.....

Luv CHRISSYxx
