Hi friends.  Hope everyone had a good Tuesday.  I had my card 90% done yesterday, then got side tracked and never finished it until tonight.
This card is made using an old Hampton Art Stamp.  I love her, and if I had to pick only a few of my many stamps to keep, she would be in that lot.  I've used her over the years for many occasions and I never tire of seeing her looking back at me from the shelf.

See what I mean, that face!!!

A simple card, Spellbinders dies for scalloped squares (Grand)
and the fancy label that the teddy girl is mounted on.
White textured card base.  Pale Pink Satin bow.
Hearts from a small punch.
Colored with Copics
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Color Me Creative Challenge Group - Color with Texture
2 Sisters Challenge - White Red and or Pink
A Gem of a Challenge #65 - Gingham or Checks
All Sorts Week 192- Let's Get Cute
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until later..............

Oh you are so right, Sue, that face. It's precious. I love how you mounted her on that die and the scallop card base. Please forgive me for not being around the past couple of weeks. I've been filling in at work full time and a stint with a horrible cold that won't leave my lungs. On top of that I've pulled my back out so crafting has been out of the question lately. Even sitting at the desk hurts and there is no energy left over from work. I hope to get back to normal within a couple of weeks. Enjoy the day. We may be in for a big storm Friday, I assume you will get a part of that also. Stay safe.

I love how you have embossed the bear image. I think it always makes the coloring look so much neater, IMPO. She is just too, too lovely! The real truth is that you had me at the gingham. :)

She would be my favorite too. She reminds me of one of my Boyd's Bears. Gingham and hearts are the perfect accent for her.
