Announcing Teddy Bea!

Hi Everyone!

Wow! What a mixed bag of weather we are having.  This week so far we have had Sun, Rain, Severe Winds and Thunder and Lightning.  I love Stormy Weather and today we had the most amazing Rainbows!
 I am so excited by this card that I am sharing with you!  (I actually have 2 firsts for me with this card)  I was told about Teddy Bo by a very Wonderful Crafter.   I had not heard of them before and when I looked at the site, I couldn't believe how many images they have in their shop!  This is my first but will definately not be my last.  (My other first is that I have never made a Centre Stepper Card Before!)  This Image is called Teddy Bea 213 and she comes either as I have her here or with a Merry Christmas Sentiment.  I don't have alot of experience at colouring bears and it took 4 attempts to get her face looking how I liked it.  I nearly gave up!!  Here's what I did with her!  I coloured her using Promarkers and mounted her onto a Red Card which I have used for my Base/Frame Layer.  The Background Papers are LOTV from the Classic Christmas Paper Pad.  I used several dies to decorate this card.  They are Crafts Too Holly Border which I cut in Red, Cottage Cutz are responsible for the two different Holly cuts.  The bow was sent to me by a friend when she bought a new die so I don't know the name of this but I used a Red and a White one and layered them together.  The sentiment is Hand Stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and I added Diamond Sparkles Soft Snowdrift to the furry bits.  Its sooooo sparkly!  I wasn't sure whether to add more bits to the side steps but I didn't want to hide the Paper as I love it!
