Going dotty about bears

I read recently somewhere that a fair proportion of British adults still sleep with their teddy bears ... I don't actually sleep with mine as sadly he fell to pieces years ago due to an over abundance of love and cuddles .... but I think I must be having a "bear moment" as I made three cards yesterday and coloured in an image for a fourth ... and yep, they were all teddies!!

For this card I followed the sketch at this week's Everybody-Art-Challenge #106

.. and I also made the card for

Lili of the Valley #62 - Let's Go Dotty for Circles
Passion for Promarkers #67 - Teddy Bears' Picnic
Papertake Weekly - Just the one (just one bow)
Pollycraft #59 - Add a Little Nature

Main image: LotV "Teddy with bouquet" coloured with Promarkers;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
Papers: Papermania "Summer Bloom";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon from my stash (rescued from my mum's birthday cake!!);
Tools: small circle, large cirlce and large classic scalloped circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "scalloped dot" edge punch.

Gotta go ... way past my bedtime .. but by the time I get home from work tomorrow I would have missed the LotV challenge .. and that would never do would it lol!?!
