Second Challenge at Teddy Bo - Seeing Double

We're looking for a craft with 2 items that match featuring on it
and of course our favourite little bears Teddy Bo or Teddy Bea.
So this is the second challenge at Teddy Bo......I suddenly had a flash of inspiration and created this card last night.  I did have a bit of help from Mike who helped with the caption!  Double Teddy Bospresso!
I just love these bears they are so adorable.
I have made an easel card and the backing paper is Bo Bunny - Lush Red Circles, double sided paper - a bargain in the January Sales from Hobbycraft which makes it even better.
The image is coloured with copics and the sentiment printed on my PC.

I am also entering this into the challenge at  Teddy Stampers where the theme is Anything Goes!

Thanks for looking and I just want to say a big Hello to all me lovely new followers. Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday whatever you are doing.  I'm off for a swim now so will see you all later.

Plum Crazy with Stitching Challenge # 12 Ladybug Crafts Ink

This was a challenge for me.....I haven't attempted proper stitching on any cards yet and this one is no different so I went for the faux variety........just didn't manage to get it quite straight!   for the image I used "Magnum add on" coloured with Copics. Sentiment from Craftwork Cards. The balloon is glazed with Glossy Accents.
Plum cardstock with a white gel pen to do the faux stitching......think I need more practice with this!!
I am entering the card into the challenge at Lady Bug Crafts Ink.

Thanks for looking.

Quick Decoupage Cards

So only half an hour to go until Dancing on Ice 2011......  I have to say I love this program and am looking forward to this years show.

Decoupage was one thing that I used to do a lot of when I first started making cards.  Since I have got into rubber stamping I always feel like its cheating to make cards like this I saw some of the new designs that Trimcarft have brought out and decided they would make some really quick cards.

The first one is from the "Basil & Buttercup" Decoupage Pad

The second one is from "Fairy Cupcakes" Decoupage Pad 

and finally one from "The Mackenzies" Decoupage Pad

Thanks for looking.  Whatever you are up to enjoy your evening and hope the week is a good one.

Christmas Mailbox

Instead of making a traditional card for my parents for Christmas I made them a Mailbox and but a note tied up with ribbon inside.

I used a template from My Time Made Easy  which you can see by clicking on the link. There are some great projects and the template was easy to use.

If I remember correctly the holly paper was from a Forever Friends paper pack.
I added stickles - Frosted Lace for the snow.  Even this just had to have a bit of sparkle!!! Maybe I should try and make a card that doesn't have any glitter this that would be a challenge.

Thanks for looking.
