You're never too old for a Teddy Bear

Am I the only one stuggling to remember what day it is? I'm not sure if it's the double jubilee bank holiday, or the copious amounts of alcohol, that have fuddled my brain!! In my defense we had a few extra celebrations - dd's birthday - Suzie's birthday :-) - we bought a business and a car! - AND we sold the house! What a weekend!!!

I am also excited to be joining the girls from Do You Stack Up? as their guest designer this week. The theme is paper-piecing and they have a fabulous sponsor - Rhoda Design Studios - who kindly sent me this cute, digi bear to work with.

I went with a more 'grown-up'  bear style for this card, but I'm not sure it works... what do you think? The little bear was paper-pieced, coloured with Copics and some gems, then cut out and stuck on with foam pads.

Thanks to the DT for choosing me to join them this week, and I hope you'll play along with the challenge. xxx
