I Shot Myself Down in Flames and Fell in Love........

Three weeks ago I stated I was NOT a bear person, wasn't over keen on bears - then - the same day, or it could have been the day after I came across Teddy Bo and fell immediately in love with him and his friend Teddy Bea.
This is Teddy Bea - I suspect she's Teddy Bo's girlfriend as I have another image which indicates that she is.
Just look - how could you not fall in love with this adorable  pair!!
I settled down to do my DT commenting this morning only to find InLinkz was down on all the blogs so I took the opportunity to make a card.

Teddy Bea is coloured with Copics and mounted on a frame cut with a Nellie Snellon die. The papers are all Basic Grey from the Phresh and Phunky range.

The scalloped border is cut with the EK Success Scalloped Scallop punch, the hearts with Spellbinders nesties then coated with Glamour Dust and the ribbon is from my stash.

Now then all together AWWWW!!!! Isn't she sweet!!
You'll definitely be seeing more of these adorable bears.
Teddy Bo even has his own challenge blog which you can find HERE, and you can get your digi images from the Teddy Bo SHOP

I love the fabulous sketch at ABC challenges so much I decided to use it but as the letter this week is M for Magic sadly Bea doesn't count even though I think she's magical. but hopefully she qualifies for the following challenges -

Teddy Stampers - Anything Goes
Cutie Sunday - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - something Cute

Well I suppose I'd better crack on with my commenting now Mr InLinkz seems to be back from is wanderings!!

Sue said...

Awww lovely card!

I am very fussy about my bears too - but this one is gorgeous!

I love the colouring, it gives a great effect on the hat!

Sue xx

Paula said...

HOW did you match the colouring of her hat to the paper?
it looks as if you've paper pieced it with co-ordinating paper, or did I miss something in your description? Love the dark blue with the papers. I had to laugh at the title of your post, in fact it made me think twice about something else so thanks for the warning! They really are quite unlike any bears I've seen, but then I suppose that James The Bear is quite unique too....oh dear..... it's a beary subject!
