Fairytale Friday

Gosh the last day of the month already, 1st September tomorrow can you believe it?!!

Its Fairytale Friday time again and as I am team B it means we get to play with any image we want to, so I decided to have a play with 'Ballet Bea' _214 she is such a sweetie to colour. I have used Promarkers and Prisma Pencils to colour Bea. The lovely doily is Cheery Lynn's 'English Tea party' a lovely die but so fiddly to pop out all the little bits, what a mess my floor was in afterwards. The papers are from Craft creations, I do love these papers so fresh. 

Don't forget to join in with the 'Teddybo Challenge' this week which is 'Black, White and one other colour. You have until Sunday to take part, you could be the lucky winner of 5 digi's I hope you all have a lovely weekend xxx

Wee Stamps 'Christmas Bunny'

Its been a struggle for me making cards lately I just seem to of lost my mojo, so much so that I thought about packing it all in.. I made this card just for the fun of it yesterday, was fairly pleased with the out come. The image is a Wee Stamps 'Christmas Bunny' I coloured him up some time ago he was sitting in my craft drawer waiting to be added to a card. I have teamed this up with some papers from Nitwits 'Mr & Mrs Too'. The greetings are both from Cuddly Buddly and are available as a download.

Oh I did my drawer for the Ready -Teddy-Go Blog hop and the winner is Mags so please can you contact me so I can get your prize sent off to you :) This is what you have won Mags, I hope you like TeddyBea??

TeddyBo Tuesday

 'Distress it' challenge at Teddybo Towers you have until Sunday 
I have used one of the new graphics released this week, isn't she so sweet. I think the DT all love her judging by the number of cards made, there are four new graphics all together. As I said in my previous post distressing doesn't come easy to me, I have distressed the card by sanding down the edges .

We are in the middle of decorating the lounge at the minute so the house is upside down! I am sure it will all be worth it in the end but its so stressful moving everything in and out. I hope it doesn't rain today as most of my furniture is in the garden lol... so fingers crossed.
