Ready-Teddy-Go CHALLENGE #3 - "Punch It Out"

September passed in a flash didn't it???   Which means a brand new challenge at Ready-Teddy-Go our third!!!

Please enter your work featuring your punches and of course your BEARS.
 The winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month, so plenty of time to enter.
And please remember you can enter up to 4 times as long as you submit a different piece of work

Here's my DT inspiration card

I don't know what you call this type of card . . . it's a stepper card but with an acetate roof.  If anyone knows what this is "officially" known as can they let me know please.

The papers are all from the brand new and very gorgeous "Grin and Bear It" collection from
I get the newsletter sent to me and as soon as I saw the collection I knew I had to have it even though I was supposed to be cutting down on the craft shopping for a wee while. . . yeah right!!!

Sorry about the rubbish photography . . . I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm never 'gonna be a David Bailey!!
But I hope from this angle you can see what I mean about the acetate roof.  All the tape to hold the acetate has to be hidden behind something and in this case this is where the punches came into play.

A closer shot of the brilliant paper . . . I just know this will be a fall back collection for a long while to come, after all it is mostly very PINK!!!  The chipboards are from Fizzy Moon and the sentiment is from Kanban.  The ribbon at the top of the card is made from a strip of polka dot paper which has been pleated to look like folded ribbon.  It's finished off with a NitWits paper button.

A very different style of card for me this one but then I'd been wanting to try this style for a while and I'm sure that I'll use it again.

Thanks for visiting me,
