A gorgeous teddy

Hello lovely people,

I have been making the most of a couple of days off work to get ahead with all my crafty projects, although I have had to do a little housework too!  I also had a lovely coffee date with Dr. Hubby this morning and we shared a piece of amazing chocolate fudge cake - yum :-)

While I am back to work, it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme is...

...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Dies to Die For with a £15 voucher

This is a tough choice as I love teddies and fairies and use both a lot on my cards, but the cute and cuddly factor of teddies makes them the winner for me.
I may also be heavily influenced by a certain little bear who has a special place in my heart, and always features on my Christmas cards... it's James bear!

I've gone for the easy option of a pre-coloured art pad image (not available any more) and a simple layout.  I distressed all the edges and added lots of Frantage and sparkle...which you can't see, but it's there on some areas of the image - lol!

I also added a couple of chipboard snowflakes which I have sponged with white acrylic paint, and a sentiment strip cut from the DP.

I hope you will pop over to As You Like It and check out the fabulously creative projects from the rest of the team :-)

I keep telling myself that it's only 2 days until the weekend - hurrah!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
