Oldie But Goodies Teddy Bears Picnic

Good morning Bloggers and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the cyber space crafting world today. I'm back from 5 fantastic days in Italy and It's time for a new challenge over at
and this week the lovely Pauline has chosen the theme for us and she wants us to have
A Teddy Bears Picnic
So dust off your teddy stamps and remember you must use a rubber stamp (not a digi) and it must be at least 6 months old to be able to join in for a chance to win a fabulous prize and this week we are sponsored by stampelkallan and they are offering the winner 5 stamps and as a new release came out yesterday there couldn't be a better time to choose! Also on offer this week is a Guest Designer spot and a DT call. Head over to the main challnge blog to check out all the details and to see what our fabulous design team have come up with for your inspiration.
For my card I used a Forever Friends stamp that I must have had forever! I don't even know where I got him, all I know is I have never used him and I found him at the back of my draw when I was desperately searching for a teddy stamp.

The paper is from the DCWV 'Glitter' stack and the green meshy jutey wire stuff is from Bunny Zoes. The flowers are Prima (I seem to be using more of these lately than the 3D variety) and the sentiment is LOTV.  The chipboard 3 is from my stash was painted with dabbers and you can't see it but I covered the inside of the card in matching DP's.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts - Teddy Bears Picnic
Papertake Weekly.  - Bloom and Grow
A Spoonfull Of Sugar  - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft  - In The Garden
Pear Tree Designs  - Stamped Images
Stamp Something  - Anything Goes

Thank you for looking and to those that do for commenting. I hope to see you all over at Oldie But A Goodie for another fantastic fun challnge

Awww this is SO cute Laurie! I am fussy about my bears, but he's a sweetie and you've coloured him beautifully! Fab layout and love that shade of green! ooh I like that mesh and the flowers. I keep using a lot of those Prima ones lately too! I think they are quite funky and summery and you can colour them to match which is big bonus! mmm.... now I'm wondering if I have any teddy stamps? I'm sure I have somewhere ...

Love 'n' Hugs
