Love My Teddy

Hello lovely people,

It's time to join in the fun with Teddy Stampers again, we loved all your creations and visiting your lovely blogs and hope you will join us again.
Our sponsor for this challenge is  Cornish Heritage Farms

For this fortnight our challenge is a little different.
To me, one of the most adorable sights... is a child hugging their favourite teddy especially beany ones where the legs and arms are all floppy, so with this in mind our challenge for this fornight is:
                            Love my Teddy.
What we would love to see... using your stamps or digi stamp images,
 is where the teddy is not the main character.
So it could be hugging...playing...having tea with teddy.
Isn't this just the most adorable image ever, I love it so much I just had to show it off!!!

This is my DT creation... a decorated photo frame.
Other challenges i'll be joining are:

Papertake Weekly ~ stitches

Craftalicious ~ Cute

BasicGrey ~ photo inspiration

This is the frame by Papermania before I started it should be easy to read the size.

The side view
It has an aceate window that slides upwards out of the top.
The most important thing is the image. It's 'Sleepy Sage' from Mo's digital pencil.
The copic colours: hair E31 33 35   skin E0000 E000 R00   pyjamas E04 YG03
teddy G00 G20 E000 C1   background Y23 E000
DP is 'lemonade' by BasicGrey 3 different sheets
I used Pinflair book binding glue to stick the paper on and to glaze the frame and flowers
faux stitches with a fine liner pen for the patchwork effect.
Punches Martha Stewart doylie and ek success retro for the flowers
and pearl brads from The Hobby House

Check out my lovely teamies for some great inspiration.

Thanks for calling in, hope you have a fun in the sun weekend,

Love Cherie  //*.*\\
