Good Sunday Morning! I am in the process of trying to get my mojo going. I have been really down lately and not getting anything done. I am making a quick post as I really thought I had done this about a month ago. Well, I took the picture about a month ago but that is as far as I got.... I guess. Sizzix is having a promotion consisting of the topic "Where In The World Is Your Vagabond?" Sizzix would like to see a photo of you and your Vagabond and in return you will receive a 2nd edition set of stickers and new set of gauge keys. This is only for a limited time. I hope I didn't run out of limit. Like I said above, I took the picture a month ago and thought I had already posted it. I went through every picture on the site and couldn't find mine. I love my Vagabond! My shoulder surgery last year left my right arm weak. I was unable to turn the crank on my Big Shot if I was doing very much cutting or embossing. I broke down and ordered the Vagabond. The Vagabond is wonderful and is a really tough little machine.
Have a fantastic Sunday! Big Hugs!

Teddy Bo Frame

Hey Bloggers! We are at the end of another challenge at Color Me Creative Classroom and I won't be entering this in time. I just had to post this darling Teddy Bo. The challenge ended today but I just finished this little darling Teddy Bo image. My niece loves teddy bears and is getting a new room of her own. I made this darling little Teddy Bo image and put it in a cute little frame. I am not quite through with the frame but was attempting to finish my image in time for the challenge. Missed the deadline. Oh well, I really enjoyed coloring this one. The challenge is to use Spring Colors since it ran through Easter. I love these Teddy Bo images! Aren't they the cutest? The sentiment says "Warm Bear Hugs for You" and is made by Stampin' Up. I embossed it in some light blue embossing powder.

I stamped this darling Teddy Bo with momento ink on Copic Xpress it cardstock. I then colored them up with the following copics:
Fur E89, E87, E84, E81
Dress R85, R83, R81, R0000
Dress B6, B4, B2, B01, B000
Hats G46, G43, G40

I painted the frame with  Rock Candy Crackle Paint by Ranger, painted it with Baby Blue from Claudine Helmuth,  and distress it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to show the cracking. I then used my Memory Box Die for the flowers that frame the inside of the frame. I can't decide whether it needs more bling and frills on the frame or just leave it distressed. .

The new challenge is up at Color Me Creative Classroom Challenge Group. This time we are challenged to use our yellows. I love my yellows! Well, I am off to be creative.

Big Hugs!
