LOTV Teddy Bouquet

Hello, and welcome!

I'm felling just a tad frustrated...........nah!.....I'm feeling extremely frustrated!  I've been trying to  print off all my images for up-coming Design Team challenges, and my flippin' printer is refusing to play....ggrrrrrr!
It has been pretty hit and miss for a while, but always seemed to get on with it, in the end.......but, since way!!!  Will have to see if I can bribe persuade Son-in-law #2 to take a boot to it look at it for me......sigh......

I had a couple of LOTV stamps coloured up, ready to play their part in some super-fabastic creation, so decided to put this ikkle card together.....not sure it qualifies as super-fabastic, but I enjoyed playin'. anyhoo......hahaaaa!

The stamp is called Teddy Bouquet and I think he is a real sweetie....of course, I had to grab my faithful Promarkers to dress him up........the card base is white and has layers of Nitwits DP.  I cut a strip of white scalloped card with my C-cut border punch and lay a piece over brown paper lace over it.
The red flowery dies cuts are actually my Memory Box Catalina Wreath, cut in half......

I like this colour combo!

The sentiment was originally white but I gave it a make-over with my Vanilla Promarker, and blinged it with the little gems........

Why is that little piece of the brown paper lace there?  Because I tore the circle as I was cuttin' it, so this is to cover the tear...haaa!

Keep your fingers crossed that I can get that flippin' printer sorted, or expect me to be more than a tad frustrated for the rest of the week....just sayin'.....

  6. Anne-Marie, your card is ADORABLE! I think LOTV's stamps are super cute but as of yet, can only admire them on lovely cards like yours. You've colored it so beautifully! I hope your printer can be fixed!

  7. Sweet card Anne. I love the color combo too. Great little touch up on the torn paper. LOL Nobody would have even know if you didn't mention it. ; ) Loving LOTV's stamps. I can relate to your printer issues too. I have so many digis and clip art images created I want to print to make cards but turns out mine's a microsoft program issue. Grrr. Best of Luck getting yours worked out. : )

  8. Aren't printers just the most frustrating invention sometimes??? But what would we do without them?
    Beautiful card!! This is such a sweet image and you coloured him wonderfully!!

  9. Well, I think it qualifies for the super dooper award. And my birthday is coming up in a few weeks -- just saying, you know. I do so like those LOTV stamps. Have loads of the little children, but no teddies (hum, considering my love affair with teddies, no surprise, eh?). You've definitely done this little guy well.
