This little teddy is sure to make you smile!  I made him for the latest Color Me Creative challenge, which is to be fall or halloween themed.  We are being sponsored by Stamp Fairy and were fortunate enough to choose an image to play with.  I chose this little cutie!

I tried to stick with a CAS style this time.  I used paper from Cosmo Cricket’s Pixie-licious with Bazzill cardstock, Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder, Spellbinders circle and scallop dies, ‘Smile’ sentiment from Paper Smooches stamp set ‘Giddy Bugs’ and finished off with some mandarin twine from The Twinery.

I really enjoyed colouring this image, it was nice starting to use autumnal colours for a change.  Thanks for the fun image Stamp Fairy!

I was inspired to use this sketch over at Clean and Simple Stamping, which as you can see I flipped a bit (well, not me personally, I mean I flipped the sketch lol). I’m entering this card into Cardmaking Mama’s Challenge Blog (to use digi) and Polka Doodles (autumn leaves or colours).

For some more inspiration pop on over to my team gals to see what they’ve been up to!  You’re sure to find lots of halloween fun on your visits.
