Oh!! No more trees please.

Hi  friends,

Welcome to my lovely new followers thank you for joining us... looking forward to visiting you, to share some inspiration and love.
You might need a cuppa with his post!!!
 I've missed visiting you, and will catch up with you all this weekend, put the kettle on!!!

Your creations for our last Teddy Stampers Challenge were amazing, thank you so much
 I hope you'll have fun with this one, you won't be able to stop singing!!!!

                                           TEDDY BEARS PICNIC

There you go you're singing already you can let your imagination run wild (I did)
as long as you have a stamped or digi stamp bear on    and have fun.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sew Many Cards

As a teddy lover this song has always been a real favourite and I just had to use it in a story book for my delish grandchildren.

Other challenges to join in
Cute card Thursday ~ Tree-mendous you think 28 will be enough, hence my title.
Little Red Wagon ~ Summer Time .......they're on a summer picnic
Crazy Catz ~ Animals
By The Cute and Girly ~ Animals

This is an A5 page mounted onto bazzil card, I used my Bind it All to put it together. I will change the rings I only had 5/8  and think smaller ones would be better.

I  started by stamping images onto copy paper, cut some out and then I played with them and made a black and white story board for each page. I used some of the tree's as masks.
 The  magnolia stamp has 4 trees on it i've stamped straight onto the card stock on every page.
All the images are coloured with copics and a few Promarkers, I used so many colours the list would be endless!!

I was looking for someone in diguise and found this cutie... Teddy Baby from Squigglefly 
He's a digi stamp so i cut him out and sat him on to a Magnolia picnic quilt, that's stamped straight on.

The sky and grass are chalk on every page.
I used Art Impressions stamps for the tufts of grass, stones, flowers with Marvey La Plume markers.
For the title I cut the letters on my Cricut with George cartridge, I really must use it more.

I computer printed the words onto the pages first.
First bears to arrive at the picnic, what a great dad with his three cubby's,
Digi stamp called 'Off We Go' from Phindy's Place, printed on.
 Digi stamps Cuthbet Sweet and Kiki Cakes from Pollycraft these two are cut out.

More cutie bears having fun, playing lots of games, and scrummy food.

These digi stamps are from a Digi download kit from Cuddly Buddly.
You get coloured images as well as line stamped ones, I didn't use any of the coloured ones, apart from
 the paper on the front cover which  is also from this kit. As I said earlier I hand coloured all the images.
I used a white sakura souffle pen to make the dots.

More bears playing hide and seek from the kit, hand coloured and cut out.
The large tree is Magnolia and stamped direct to card stock.

As previous page.

Arh they're tired, last page phew!!
'Teddy bear bedtime story'
This is a digi stamp by LilyBoo designs and available from Cuddly Buddly.

Well thanks for sticking with me or did it put you to sleep too!!!

I'll be back later with another post I have some picys from a workshop I took earlier in the week.
So come on and join in the fun are you still singing?

Thanks for stopping by have a fun weekend hopefully in the sun.
