Crafty Little Fairies (DT) Teddies

Good morning all, it is Thursday (yes, really, it is) so that means it is time for a new challenge at
This week we have gone for the awwwh factor and our theme is
We know a lot of you love your bears, like I do, but I am probably going to surprise you by saying my card does not feature my favourite bear, James!  Are you shocked?

Instead I have used a Craftwork Cards bear - isn't he cute?  He is what I would call a traditional bear.
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) on Bristol Board
Ribbon bow stamp is from Hobbycraft and also painted with ReInkers
Papers are Wild Rose Studio roses papers
Although the matting layers look black, they are actually chocolate brown
Sentiment is a magazine freebie

So that is my DT card for Teddies.  There is of course, as always, some awesome inspiration from my Fairymates.

AND there are TWO prizes up for grabs this week, what's not to like?

See you there!
Hugs, Squirrel xx

He's so cute Squirrel - I'm a real sucker for a teddy! and this one is gorgeous - love the coordinationd bow - it really pulls the card together - just fab! hugs Judith x

Beautifully coloured (as always). I find creatures like this tricky to get the shading right on because they are larger areas of the same colour. Might give it a go this week if I get time :)

A really lovely way to frame that beautifully coloured bear, Squirrel!
