Lazy Teddy bo

I cant believe it has been 6 months since I last posted any cards.   Slight excuse is that i took my waterproof camera in snorkelling on holiday with the battery cover open and completely broke it.. doh.  Hope this works as i have taken the picture with my iphone for the first time.
 Anywho i made this card for a colleague at work who is going to have a knee replacement operation on  Friday.
Image is teddy bo of course and papers from my stash.   Lovely ribbon from stampin up, thanks to my Mum. Coloured with promarkers and finished with a wee flower cut from dienamics die.   My favourite colour just now is this pistachio green.
Hope you like.

Teddy Bea Wishes

I absolutely love Teddy Bo and now that they have these adorable images in clear stamp format it inspired me to make a wee card and post it to my blog which has been dormant for the entire summer.     I coloured the image with promarkers and the papers are from craftwork cards and the flowers are from a die from dynamics.     I embellished the papers with glossy accents but i dont think you can see it very well in the photo and i also layered her wee wings to give it another dimension.  Obviously i have to enter it into the teddy bea challenge.

good enough to eat

Just a quick post with my latest creation.   I used pink petticoat digi image and coloured with copics.   Added some glitter and of course my favourite glossy accents to give the cherrys and strawberries a bit of dimension.   Although i dont think you can see it clearly in this picture.   I think i really need to gain more experience in taking photos of my cards as i am still experimenting with settings on my camera/lighting and positioning of my cards.  and am never really happy with the results.   guess that will come with experience.
i have entered my card on the following challenge blogs.

Hi folks and another dreary day her in Scotland, I think we our lovely summer weather in April.  I stamped this image last week at the card class but just finished it off the other day.  The stamp is from LOTV which I coloured with copics, I also added some glaze to the jam and the filling on the cake to make it look more yummy. The ribbon, paper and button I had in my stash.  I have entered the challenges below...I will get better at working out how to find challenges to fit my card...next time I am going to find a few challenges and then I think it will be easier to make the card.

Teddy Bo

Hello everybody, this is my first posting here so please be gentle with me. It's just a quick one to get me started.  I made this card using digis from Teddy Bo...aren't they cute??  I have coloured them with promarkers.  The papers are from Stampin Up, I thought the images worked really well with the papers. I added some raffia to the tags and on the inside...you see that below.  The flower has been cut with the flower trio die from My Favourite Things Die-Namics and I added a little card candy to the centre.  The top photo is the card closed....

...this one is the card open and as you can see it's an easel card.  I have entered the challenges below.
