Southern Girls Challenge #15

Hey all! I said I'd be back today, so here i am with my Southern Girls challenge post. This week we would like to see some animals. Our fabulous NZ/Auss sponsor is Teddy Bo and they have generously donated some stamps for the DT to use and I got this...


TeddyBea is her name and it looks like she is planting quite the garden. Upon receiving this image I thought I was never going to be able to do it justice, but my new browns came through and I'm quite happy with the results. My chalked background even showed up, yay!! The papers are from a DCWV stack I got last year and it's full of flowery, gardeny stuff. The card stock is craft...I seem to be on a roll with the stuff, lol, and the flowers are all WOC.


Here's the inside. Go me, I made my first ever pocket card. Been doing this for a year and haven't done one til I made this, and now I may be addicted, lol. Ah, that's how it was with the easel cards for a while too. I even went out and bought a few packs of flowers to put in there. This one will go to my MIL for her B-day or Mother's day, haven't decided which, hence no sentiment, yet!


Here's a close-up. I wish that deep purple would have blended a bit better, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it...maybe I"ll try the blender next time. I used pebbles chalks to makes the sun, sky, and grass and that finished her up.


Here's my copics. Wow, would you look at all of those!! If your wondering if this took me a while, yes, it did, lol. I am a slow colorer anyway, it takes me at least and hour to color a small image this one took about two and a half. Kuddos to all of you who can just zoom thru this craft, I commend you!

Well, I guess that about does it! Oops, I forgot to mention the Int. sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking also, but sure to check out the rest of the DT creations, you won't wanna miss out! If you've got a sweet tooth be sure to stop and check out my candy. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
