I love Teddy...

I really love Teddy Bears.... in my past crafting life, I was a teddy bear maker.  I made tiny little jointed teddies of 3 inches through to big 15 inch teddies... now I just stick to stamped teddies... my favourite being Tatty Teddy... I have a number of digital images, but recently found some stamps by Docrafts available here in New Zealand from Paperzone in Hamilton. I ordered a teddy stamp and a sentiment which arrived yesterday.

Of course I had to ink it up right away. 
Tatty Teddy Birthday
I used Copics to colour in the image and matted it onto the red card.  I decided to offset the panel for a bit of a focal point.  I finished it off with crocheted flower and one of my handmade polymer clay flowers.   I really like how it turned out.  And I hope my friend at work does too... it's her birthday tomorrow so this will be perfect for her.

Had a fun afternoon today... went 10 pin bowling with our family group.  Only two other ladies and 2 kids and us... but we had a fun time.  I struggled a bit getting the angle right ~ a few gutter balls.  Hubby won both games we played.  He's got a good style.  A fun way to spend an afternoon.

Hope you all have a great weekend

Take care

This is such a sweet teddy stamp, Dawn. So fun to hear about your "teddy history"! I love this charming card design, tilting the image with the scallop mat is really effective.
