Teddies at the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week. Sending hugs to those in need of them.
Sorry I haven't posted anything for a couple of days. All is well here, I have been trying to get ahead with my DT cards so I have next week free to spend some time with my children during the half-term holiday.

Today it the start of a new Crafty Little Fairies Challenge.
It's the turn of the 'Pink Fairies' but as I am hosting this week I decided to join in, especially as we have one of my favourite themes:
Teddies
We have 2 fabulous sponsors this week:

Marianne Designs - see blog for picture of the fab prize
and
Live and Love Crafts - £10 voucher to spend online

So, I have made a bright card to hopefully brighten your day despite the weather!
The adorable image is from DigiStamp Boutique, this cute is called is called Truffle and comes in a set with the equally adorable Honey!
Sorry for the glare on the sentiment, it says 'Especially For You'.




Items Used :
Digi Stamp - DigiStamp Boutique Spring Truffle and Honey Set coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Fancy Pants Park Bench and Bo Bunny Buttercup Flourish
Die-Namics Stitched Circles Stax
Nellie Snellen small and medium flower punches
Small buttons from stash

If you take a look at the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of the design team and see who were the winners of the last challenge. I hope lots of you will join in again this week.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Sketchy Colours - Brown Orange Yellow
DigiStamp Boutique -  Feb Customer Competition
Simon Says - Get Krafty!

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now.
hugs

This is such a sweet, brightly colored card! Yellow and orange are my favorite colors at the moment, I think it's because I miss the sun so much! I like how you used the die cut frame with the circle shaped image - will borrow this idea as I recently treated myself to this set of Spellbinders dies!
