Sweet Teddy

I bought a bunch of bear images from Pollycraft a short time ago, of which this is one, entitled 'Kiki Ice cream'. Isn't she sweet!
I am using it for the challenge from Teddy Stampers which this week is Summer Bears.
I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers, but made it square rather than rectangular.
The image is coloured with Copics and I used a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly. The border was made with a Fiskars punch.
Papertake's Challenge this week is 'Ice cream flavours' Here we have vanilla, chocolate and strawberry!
Just Us Girls have a colour challenge this time of Light Pink, Chocolate and Vanilla!
I still haven't done my husband's birthday card and I went to Makro this morning to buy his present... of which they had no stock! They rang back later to tell me that some had come in, but they were pink! (I bet you're wondering what it is!!!) I'll tell you next week!
In the interim I've ordered one online, but I don't know if it will arrive for Tuesday!
I'd better get on with the card, or he might end up with nothing!!


  1. This is STUNNING Chrissie! I love it! Love all the clean lines and the embossing. Beautiful!
