Check out the fabulous design team creations!

Being as I am now a Texan, I just had to use Cowgirl Bea!!
Isn't she just adorable!! I have distressed all the edges with
my scissors and then went over them with Vintage distress ink.
It was fun going grungy again! The papers are from Cosmo
Cricket's Wanted collection ~ perfect for a Cowgirl!
To top it off I threw in a couple rusty stars and a computer
generated Howdy Y'all in a font called: Bleeding Cowboy.

As soon as I saw Bea sat on her cloud I just had to colour her up - she is perfect for so many different types of card. Love her! She's been coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The papers are MME and all the embellies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


For my card this week I have used Teddy Bea _117 and what a little sweetie she is too, such a pleasure to colour :o). I have coloured her in with Prisma Pencils, blended with Sansodor. The papers are from Raspberry Road Design - Shabby Rose. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Craft, along with the metal corner, and the little metal things in the flowers. The pins, charm, pearls and brad are from The Hobby House. I have added copious amounts of stickles too :o)

I've used Teddy Bea Topsy Turvy for my card this week and teamed her with Echo Park papers. The leaves are a Sizzix die cut and the flowers are Joy Craft daisy die cuts embossed with one of my cuttlebug folders.

I've chosen Teddybea 111 for my card this week and decided to go with a Christmas theme. The papers are KI Memories Holiday Collection 'Alpine Fashion', the snowflakes are Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 die cuts. I've coloured the image with Prisma pencils and used Art Institute glitter to give the stocking a bit of bling. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - a super selection of Christmas sayings and the kraft cardstock is from Stamping Up.

Coloured with copics and added glitter


Like Kathy I have used Bea_118, but unlike Kathy I don't live in Texas or anywhere close, but I do have quite a few line-dancers in the family and thought this image was perfect for them. Bea is coloured in Photoshop and I have paper pieced (also in Photoshop) her boots, denim skirt, waistcoat, and bandanna, using papers from Raspberry Road's Barnyard Blowout kit. I also used papers from the same kit for the card. Lace, roses and red cord are from stash. I made the cowboy boot embellishment, and Bootscootin' sentiment in Photoshop too..... now Do-Si-Do and away we go! Yeehaw!!!


We love seeing yours too!...so join in the fun!
