CHALLENGE #26 - TEDDY BEAR'S PICNIC

Wow, what a great response to our last challenge!  We thoroughly enjoyed checking out all your digi creations.

The person chosen to receive our little giveaway is Lis-M, congratulations!! Please email Mandy your details and we will pop it in the post to you.

As announced last week, we have two fabulous additions to our team, Marlou and Diane.  Both ladies have been guest designers in the past and it's so lovely to have them on board with us permanently.  Welcome to the team girls!

Now onto our new challenge...Teddy Bear's Picnic.  Although it's winter in NZ and there is a lovely white blanket of snow covering most of the country, in the UK it's summer!  We're thinking days out and picnics...and what better way to share a picnic than with your favourite Teddy!  We'd love to see your Teddy or picnic (or both) inspired projects.


Here's what we came up with...

On Saturday it is my youngest daughter's 11th birthday so I have made her this birthday card.  I also made invitations to match the card for her special day.

The digi image is Birthday Mouse Cup which you can find here.
I used kindy glitz, gold glitter glue, little mulberry rose, pink pearl rhinestones for the cute little mouse cheeks, ribbon from Ribbon Girl and a heart pin with beads.

Mandy




With so many gorgeous digital images and papers available, it was difficult to know where to start.  But after seeing fabulous creations from the Papers, Fashions Etc Design Team I couldn't resist the Oh Baby range of images, bingo cards and sentiments.

Pink Silk Ribbon, Dotty Button and Jute Twine from The Ribbon Girl together with K&Co Bailey Papers and a lovely heart doily from Marlou finish off my baby girl card.


One thing I really like about digital images is you can make them any size you want....




I've used the same images as my card, but in miniature, on a matching tag!

The little giveaway for this challenge are these lovely baby inspired embellishments and white lace.



Our Go Digi challenge runs until midnight Tuesday 16th August NZ time.  We look forward to seeing your fabulous creations.
