Crafty Calender challenge - Teddy Bears!

Good Morning! Its a absolutely beautiful morning here in Scotland. I think its a day to do nothing at all but heading to a caravan shop with my friend first, just for a browse.

I am here to bring you the new challenge over at Crafty Calender.
Before i go into the challenge details i want to tell you all some news. Starting with the sad news.
Liz, who has been on the CC DT, is stepping down. She has been such a inspiration to me since i joined the team and i cant image how many hundreds she has inspired over the years she has been here. So... Thank You Liz, for all your hard work and amazing creations you have brought to the challenge! It would be great if you could pop over to her blog and leave some love!!

The next news is that Lisa has decided she step down from running the challenge so i have decided to take over the running of the challenge. (bit nervous about that!)
Anyway the Lisa is not leaving us altogether as she is staying on the design team which we are all so happy about. (especially me, as i might need her help!)

Thin that's all the news for now so onto the challenge!
The sponsor this month is The Stamp Fairy!

The theme for this challenge has been set by Caroline.
Its her Dads birthday this month and as he gets called Ted she has decided to go with ..Teddy Bears!

Now onto my card. I have used the super cute Teddy Bea on my card. I love this image as there is a set of extra accessories that you can use with it. She is coloured with Promarkers. The papers are MME. The sentiment which reads "Come on...under my umbrella" was computer generated and printed off. Love how you can have much more personal sentiments making them yourself. All the pearls, ribbon etc are from my stash. Oh..the flowers are of course Wild Orchid crafts.

I am going to enter the following challenges;

Teddy Bo - Easel card
I love Promarkers - Song Title (Rihanna..under my umbrella ella ella.."!)

I hope you can head over to the Crafty Calender challenge blog and see the rest of the teams inspiration and join in with our challenge!
