Teddy Bea meets Sugar Nellie

Hi all hope you are well, I've woken up this morn
full of a cold and a sore throat, Blurr.
I was ok last night, my throat felt a bit dry but i
felt fine, i can't believe how quick it hit.
I don't know about you but i always seem to
get something yucky when the kids are on
school hols, i suppose that's better,i don't have 
to drag myself out of bed to early.

Got Two cards for you today so bear with me.

Ha Ha I've just realised Bear with me! (Teddy Bea)

The first is for Papertake Weekly
sponsored this week by 
Simon says stamp

This week there is a sketch to follow from
the fabulous Dawny

I've rotated it 90 degrees it seem to fit better.
I've used another Teddy Bo image coloured
with Polychromos pencils.
I have used some free papers i got with issue 84
of Simply cards and papercraft mag.
They are called Picnic in the park from Serif.
I only buy the mags when they have a good free gift.
The sentiment is a woodware stamp on a 
Nellie die. The image is on one of the new
wonky rectangle nestie's.
Flower is made with a Marianne creatables die.
I have used Antique linen distress ink on the edges.
The leaves are cut with my slice machine.

My second card is for two challenges

Basic Grey - Shabby Chic

I've had a root through my sugar nellie stamps 
again and settled on this cutie from Elisabeth Bell.
I also dug out these Basic Grey Too Scoops papers
that i have had in my stroking pile, i'm
determined to use them all up.
I love the ice cream colours of these papers.
I have used Promarkers to colour her in.
Tulip yellow, Buttercup, primrose,
Pastel green, soft green, apple,
pale pink, cocktail pink,
blush, ivory, sun kissed pink and
The Shabby chic flower is made with a
Marianne creatables flower die,
i have sanded it to give it a distressed look.
The swirls are also Marianne creatables.
I have used a Martha Stewart corner punch
to make photo corners for my image to sit in.
The sentiment is computer generated.
Ribbon is seam binding from the ribbon girl.

Phew are you still with me, good cause
that's all folks.
You can go and have a brew now,
i am my throats starting to hurt again
the para's must be wearing off.
Thanks for stopping by
Take Care
