A cute little Teddy

I am ADDICTED to buying crafting magazines... even more so when they come with free stamps, papers etc.  This past week I got 4 different magazines.  And one of them papercraft essentials came with not only a little stamp set but a Paper stack as well.  They are from Forever Friends and are super cute

I had to ink up the stamp straight away... 

Teddy Birthday

 I printed some gingham looking paper I had on my computer ~can't remember where I got it :-(  and stamped the little butterflies from the stamp set down one side.  I coloured with a Tombow marker.  Teddy was stamped onto some watercolour paper and coloured with Tombow marker and a blender pen.   Loved the way it gave texture with out added bulk.  I trimmed Teddy out and added to the corner of the card.  The sentiment is from Stamp-It 

Well it's short and sweet today, as it's been a full on day... we got an invite to have lunch with a friend who's birthday is today.  So quickly did the groceries and then went around to her place... home just after 4pm.  Hubby went up to the local pub for the rugby prize giving and has just arrived home 7pm and informed me we are heading out to dinner and our friends Gary and Karen are arriving asap to come with us...so off I go!!!

This is so cute, Dawn! Lovely colouring on the cute little bear and I love the way you've added the flower and butterflies too! It's great getting those extras with the magazines - I got a Christmas elephant with my one yesterday:)

Oh what a fun day, Dawn. We never left the house--hunkered down during the wind & rain. That teddy is adorable & I love how you colored him! Such a great image for many types of cards.

My budget doesn't allow for magazines, but I see you really got your money's worth here, Dawn. This is so darn cute. Love the cuddly smile and your layout is fab.
