.....and the three bears!

Just a quick reminder that you still have until Sunday midnight to enter the latest Teddy Bo challenge,
Buttons and Bows,
with a chance of winning a great prize of a £10 voucher to Bunny Zoe's store and a couple of images from the Teddy Bo store.

This week I have made three cards using some of the images from last Tuesday's new releases, Christening Bea, Christening Bo and Communion Bea. Also found some lovely crosses at Clipart Fairy which are just perfect for these cards, papers used for all three cards are also from the Clipart Fairy.



  Christening Bea digi, paper from Button It Pink interactive set here, pink cross here, Marianne dies for circle and corners, pearls and ribbons from stash, and lots and lots of glamour dust, which isn't showing up too well in the photos.






Christening Bo digi, background paper is a freebie from here, blue cross here, ribbon and pearls (teddy Bo's buttons) from stash, used nesties for circles and plenty of glamour dust.









Holy Communion Bea, pink cross as before, spotty paper from here, insert paper from here, ribbons, flowers and pearls from stash, Bea's shoes have been painted with pearly watercolour paint and I used Tulip pearl fabric paint on her headress, and lots and lots of glamour dust.

I am going to enter my cards into the following challenges, for most of the challenges any one of the cards would be suitable, but for the odd ones that ask for something specific to just one of my cards I will list the appropriate card next to the challenge.

House of Gilli - Ribbon and Pearls
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
