Oldie But A Goodie #19 – Teddy Bears’ Picnic

Good morning everyone – hope you’re having a good week. It’s time for a new Oldie But A Goodie Challenge – thanks so much to everyone who entered last time, and don’t forget to check whether you’re a winner.
Before we get on to this week’s challenge – we have a couple of bits of news. Sadly due to family illnesses and other commitments we have lost a couple of members of the DT over the past few weeks, and they will be sadly missed. However the good news is that this means the blog is running a DT call – both for full time and and guest designers. be sure to check out the main blog for further details!
So on to this fortnight’s challenge – today it is my turn to pick the challenge theme :-) and I have chosen
Teddy Bears’ Picnic
We would like to see your creations featuring teddy bears …. and if you can optionally  incorporate a picnic theme as well, so much the better!!
We are sponsored this time by Stämpelkällan who are offering a randomly drawn winner their choice of 5 stamps :-) … they have also had a new release of stamps yesterday (16th May) so be sure to check them out!
Don’t forget .. to be eligible for this week’s prize you should submit a new project whose main focus is a hand stamped image (no digis please) which is at least six months old!! This explains why despite buying some adorable new release LotV teddy bear stamps at Port Sunlight on Saturday, I will NOT be showcasing them right here and now ;-)
The other ladies have produced some fab teddy creations .. here’s mine.

Main image: Penny Black transparent set “Teddy and Company” coloured with Copics and Promarkers;
Sentiment: Penny Black transparent set “Salutations”;
Papers: Papermania “Forever Friends – Springtime”;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; lace from my stash;
Tools: small, large and lacy circles nestabilities; Marianne D Creatables leaf die.
