Patriotic Teddy Bear


Good afternoon everyone...we finally have warm, sunny weather here in the UK and it's great to see Sophie out in the garden having fun on the trampoline. Fingers crossed the warmer weather stays with us until the weekend.

I saw this fab sketch over on the Pink Gem Challenge Blog and couldn't resist having a play. This sweet little teddy is a pre-coloured image but I wanted to make the colours a bit bolder so I have coloured over the top with Promarkers.


I'm also entering this card into this weeks Passion For Promarkers (#150) 'Birthday' Challenge

Colouring Medium: Smooth White Card & Promarkers
Embellishments: Brads, Card Candy and Gingham Buttons from my Craft Stash

Thank you for the birthday wishes. Sitting here with a bottle of champagne curtesy of the hotel management . Like your little bear. Didn,t realise you could go over the top of a pre coloured . Good idea to keep up ones sleeve. Wi fi is very intermittent here at the moment so not able to comment at the moment very often. Bugs Mrs A.
