Mr and Mrs Teddy Bear

Hi all,  Sorry I don't seem to have posted much lately. I'm going through another 'tired' phase. I wish I was a hedgehog and could hibernate for the Winter, then just wake up when it's Spring again!!! LOL Anyway, as Ladybug Crafts Ink have a Love and Marriage Theme, I thought I would enter this card. They also have a Blog Hop with lots of fab prizes to celebrate their First Anniversary!


The Happy Couple are 'Mr and Mrs Teddy Bear' from Wee Stamps. Paper is Wild Rose Studio 'In Love with Japan' stack. Sentiment was made on computer and ribbon and pearls are from stash. Sorry about the grainy photos - just can't get the light right!


Colouring:-
Bears: Cool Greys 1, 2, 3, 4 and Blossom Pink Promarkers
Leaves: Copics G82, G85
Roses: Blossom Pink and Rose Pink Promarkers
Sky: Bahama Blue Memento Ink
Dress: Star Dust Stickles
Suit: Paper-pieced from DCWV Latte Stack

I made a mask so that I could do sky background through the door opening. Then used a cloud shape mask and dusted with 'Bahama Blue' Memento Ink. I've paper-pieced his hat and tie using DCWV Latte paper.

Ah well, gonna get some sleep now!! I had to check on my mum as she has her allergy, bless her. She gets reaction quite often where her face or tongue swell up badly. I like to see that the steroids have kicked in before I leave her. 

Hope you all enjoyed Downton Abbey on Sunday! and if like me you are already suffering from Downton Withdrawal - The good news is that there is a Christmas Special - Yay! Really enjoyed Strictly again, but poor Artem is injured! I'm gutted! hope with rest he can get back to form in few weeks maybe? 

Back to card ....

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:

CES Challenge 60 - 'Entertain Us! - Song or Film' (ends 11th November 2011)
Inspired by the Song - "Love and marriage, Love and marriage, Go together like a horse and carriage" (altogether now - sing with gusto) LOL
Ladybug Crafts Ink - 'Love and Marriage and/or Anything Goes' (ends 14th November 2011)
Sentimental Sunday - Challenge 80 - 'Wedding/Anniversary (ends 14th November 2011)
