Teddy Valentine

Good morning, cold and raingin here, not a good day to get out in it but, gotta go to work. Here is the card i made yesterday for the challenge over a t The Sweet Stop. Something is going on with my computer, it posted this earlier and I wasn't even finished writing it up, some times I feel like just trashing it LOL. Any whoo, I stamped on some paper to make the background paper, then sponged Walnut Stain over it, started layering and stamped the teddy (whom I don't know the company) embossing him with gold powder, stamped him 3 more times in green, yellow and blue. Cut those parts of the heart out and glued them back together on the gold one. He's colored with Stampin Up markers added the brass like button to the heart and the other thingy to the side, both from stash! I am using a lot of stash here lately and hopefully by the end of the year will see a big ole dent in it. Okay that's it for now, gotta hit the shower and get to work, have a blessed day and rmember to smile, God loves ya!!!

They say that rain is headed here today. Yuck! Guess it will melt the snow that is still everywhere. I love how you paper pieced the heart on this cute little bear.

adorable - great paper piecing... using up stash is a big plus!
my blog was giving me fits so I changed my whole layout (it was changing colors on its own...like someone else was controlling my computer...eeerie!)

Very cute card, Olga! Love the background and the sweet little paper-pieced bear! Stay warm and dry! We were woken up at 3:00 AM by the tornado siren! Thankfully no damage here and all is quiet again now!

Barbara Colbert said...

So cute! Great use of stash! We have ice and snow!

Betty Benton said...

Love this one, Olga, particularly all the layers of your layout -- gotta check out that sketch challenge! Same thing happened to me -- my photo posted before I even started the write-up. Thought I had touched the wrong key on my laptop but maybe not.......

Patti J said...

Too cute! Your paper pieceing is just too much fun - love it! Sorry about the rain, but I guess it was nice of me to share, right??? lol...have a great week!

Bears are just classical, aren't they? You have a beautiful collection of cards on your blog. I've missed getting by for the last couple of days, and you have been a very busy gal. Always anxious to see all the lovelies you have posted.

Now this is super sweet, my friend . Love the soft feel to it, almost a homespun country feel :) I have a huge heart and collection of different dolls and bears we've bought in small Appalachian shops and in the Smokies (years ago, not our recent trip,lol) and this just stands right out like something I'd see up on a wooden shelf - I think you absolutely made one of the sweetest cards ever here!! Blessings!

What a cute little card, gotta love teddy bears and this little guy is adorable with the heart and the layers. There is nothing worse than rain and cold, but guess it could be freezing rain or snow, but it so raw. We are looking at 3" of rain the next couple of days, but we sure need to make up for the 21" we are down. :)

When I opened your page and saw this card I really said... 'awwww that teddy is so sweet'! Sure is a cute card and I love all the DP layers!!

Computers have a mind of their own! Blogger has been acting up according to lots of people. I think I've been a lucky one... knock on wood... and have only experienced slow page loads when visiting others.

This is so adorable! The bear is cutie pootie and lovin the offset layers. Maaaavelous! Have a wonder-some day!!

Becky said...

This is adorable Olga..Love the paper piecing of the heart.
We had 16 inches of snow here :)

Sheree said...

This is just adorable Olga!! Once again, you've produced a masterpiece!
It's been raining like heck here on the island. We had 115 km winds for 24 hours and they finally stopped around 10 p.m. last night. There's stuff everywhere!
Hugs,
Sheree
