Love is in the air!



Meet Birthday Teddy, by Joan Elliott for Ladybug and Friends stamps ~ now available at 7 Kids College Fund.   I thought he would work well with his heart balloon as a Valentine’s Day card.

I’m truly in love …  with these stamps!   🙂    If you’re not familiar with this company, you really NEED to check out Ladybug and Friends stamps!     7 Kids currently has some available as preorders that have been illustrated by Elizabeth Bell!    

I had so much fun with Mr. Teddy that I had to make a second card!      For this card I used SEI Juliette DP ~  there are some very cool papers in this collection.  



This card is a bit more subdued than the second, as you’ll see below!    I’ve paper-pieced Teddy’s shirt, hat and heart balloon.   The sentiment is computer generated.



So, get out your sunglasses – the next Birthday Teddy card is a bit brighter!



I was pretty excited to use the brand new Basic Grey Sugar Rush  DP on this one.   I again paper-pieced Teddy using three different papers from this set.   I really like ALOT of the papers from this collection and am very happy that BG released them BEFORE CHA!   Yay.  



 Hope you’re keeping warm – it seems to be unusually cold EVERYwhere lately!   Brrrrrrr….

P.S.  If you’re interested, I have added both of these cards, plus a few others to my ETSY store.    🙂
