Who's having a picnic ?


Note added Sunday 15th: Sorry this one is delayed, it was sceduled a while back but clearly Mr Blogger had other ideas yesterday when it should have posted. I didn't check as I normally would as I was being very strict with myself yesterday spending my time working on new sample for Stamp Addicts next programme on 26th.........advance notice, they are Devine stamps.

Only I could make this mistake and come up with the card below for Debs Allsorts theme of Teddy Bears Picnic.

As it was I went into panic mode as I have so few cute type images and almost non existent on the Teddy front. Then I remembered Penny Black 40-046 Hedgies Birthday, perfect I though as they are having a picnic. Spot the problem ? Well I didn't until I had almost finished my card.


So I think it's a bit of a compromise, a hedgies picnic and a teddy sitting in the meadow and he is Penny Black 4054K. Both cards were coloured with Aquamarkers and a bit of decoupaging. DP on the top one is Crate Paper and the other offcuts from stash.

  21. Your comprimise is quite forgivable after seeing these two adorable cards! I love the sweet teddy one with the butterflies and the little birthday one is so cute!
    I like how you pop the characters up from the image. Great technique.
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  22. Very cute cards Brenda - and Hedige could be having his picnic in the same meadow as the teddie is sitting! I'm having fun with the new SA stamps too - the ones I have are so different and just gorgeous! Esther xx

  23. well I think that bear is just separated from his picnic edibles - he's in the meadow which is a very plausible site for a picnic. Love the red flowers with the Hedgie & Mouse too. Look forward to seeing the Stamp Addicts samples too.
