It's not my fault...

Jilli, Sarah and Cupcake made me do it! Jilli because she keeps making the most gorgeous creations with them (and in fact inspired this card.) Sarah, because she's a minx and we sort of agreed to do it together. (Where are you, Chicken?) And Cupcake, because it's my Challenge this week, so I thought I'd best stop faffing, pull my finger out and get going with something!

What on earth am I talking about? (Don't worry, it's not the first time I've been asked that question, particularly this early on a Monday morning!) Teddy Bo of course! I've been hankering after these images for a while and had managed to resist the urge. (You know the kind. Lemon Meringue Pie, one fork, actually, forget the fork, darkened room kind of stuff.)

This image is TeddyBoBea_ Tabs_ 002 and is one of three, but I've made it mahoosive, coz I love it and wanted it to be 'the card'. It's perfecto for the new Challenge over at Cupcake this week;

If you go down to the woods today...

Yep, it's all about bears! We're delighted to be sponsored again by Sassy Studio Designs and our monthly sponsor is Bunny Zoe's Crafts, pop over for all the deets and to lick all the delish creations from The Cupcakes!

Hi Faye, FAB card! Such a cute image and I love the CAS design. Really wish I could make 'less is more' cards like this ... mine just look unfinished.

Unknown said...

Faye - that is just soooo fab! I'm stomping my foot here though that you managed to get your card done before I have and you've set the bar so high. I'm really going to have to work hard to get something as stunning as that! I'm beavering away with a wash of cards - and housework, bah!, - in real life. You'll just have to wait a couple of days for mine. Sarah

Denise said...

Feebsy said...

Lurve the texture you've created with your colouring Faye. The image is so sweet and I like the simplicity of the layout.

I'm wondering if you had to lay down in a darkened room yesterday after The Jackman was on two tv channels on the same night!

Grenouille Greetings said...

So many Teddy Bos - so little time! I love what you have done with this image! Stunning colourwork, girlfriend! And I love your clean design! I'm thinking you have inspired me to do something very similar. It would make a great Christmas card if their hats were red and green with a bit of sparkle or with some Christmas paper as backing. I so need to be motiviated to get started and I think you've just motivated me! Thank you Fluff! Hugs, Lesley
