Grrrr.... I spent all day, (not unusual for me) creating my challenge card only to realise, JUST as I about to send it to Angelica,......... that IT WAS THE FOR THE WRONG WEEK! ARGHHHHH!
So, I had to start again from square one. That's why I'm dead late with my sample card.

I had decided to make a card each for my newest grand-daughter and grandson as they are both one year old in October and December respectively. Well, I did Alfie's and THAT was the wrong one. (You will get to see it at the next challenge).  This week's challenge is a sketch, here............

 So, sat down and started again and came up with this.....................

I was DETERMINED to use those gorgeous Tear Bears released yesterday in the blog hop.
(I think you might like the Alfie one too, when it's the next challenge, 'coz that's a Tear Bear too)!
I'm having a BLAST with these dies and can't praise them enough!!!
Kathy is a genius for designing these marvellous fellas and to come together with Cottage Cutz to arrive at this fabulous marriage of dies and stamps, is just amazing!! Check out the fantastic discount offer HERE!

I coloured my bear with a brilliance ink pad and a sponge, (except for her mouth which is coloured with a Copic) and I covered the 'one' in Glamour Dust for some girly sparkle.
Please, pop on over to the Peachy Keen challenge blog and see what the most amazing DT EVVAH made for you today.

Happy crafting!!

Wow!! that is a fabulous card, and the Teddy is stunning.. and so cute. Just the thing for Teagans 1st birthday. (I cant wait to see Alfies)
I love the fact that you can ink them up or cut them in patterned card too I guess. I might have to investigate these..

Viv this is just too cute! I may have to scrap lift this one, we just welcomed our 8th grandchild yesterday. We now have 3 grand daughters and 5 grandsons ( newest one was Tuesday). All these cuties in under 6 yrs, yikes! I love this tear bear, now to find some time to create, lol. TFS, Mary M

I hear ya, girl! When I did that two weeks in a row, I decided I needed to cut back on my design teams. I think I was on 6 at the time and my head was spinning. Not only did I submit the wrong week's card for one of the teams, they actually published it and I felt like a total idiot!

Anyway, your card is fabulous and I hope things settle down for you.
