Quick off the mark with Teddy Bo

This cute little teddy bear stamp arrived free with my copy of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine this morning and I was inspired to use him straight away by this weeks Totally Papercrafts sketch Challenge (closes Friday).

I thought Teddy Bo looked like he is waving to you so teamed it up with a Hello You! sentiment from Craftwork Cards

Still More Patriotic Cards!

Really getting in the Jubilee mood now with these red,white and blue cards. They are  made using the fab Portobello Road papers and stamps with a bit of bunting added.

The Union Jack ribbon I found at the great Halfpenny Home haberdashery which is just down the road in Needham Market - I can recommend a root around in the shop which is a treasure trove of buttons, ribbons and yarns!

Wellington & the Docrafts Goodie Bag

I only went to The Range to get a copy of the Creativity Magazine but the new Wellington Docrafts Goodie bag fell into my basket too. 

So, guess what, last night was spent playing with the contents and making several of these cards.After doing some (essential) housework I'm hoping to spend more time crafting today . 

The only thing I wasn't sure about were the bright yellow flowers that were in the bag - they just are too garish to go with the papers!
