May . . . a new challenge at RTG - BINGO

Hello everyone

Nice weather we are having isn't it?  NOT
So different from the weather last month, how strange is it that March was the warmest on record and April has been the wettest for a 100 years.  And how mad is it the "drought" areas that currently have a hosepipe ban, also now have flood warnings???   The British weather is officially mad!!!

Anyway to hopefully cheer everyone up, Ready Teddy Go have a new challenge for May.

Challenge #10 is BINGO

The DT ladies came up with some stunning creations, well worth popping over to have a look 

Our generous sponsor this month is Torico of Birdie Brown

Torico is offering 3 digital stamps of the winner's choice as the prize, so well worth joining in.
A BIG thank you to Torico

With a lot of help from my daughter at the weekend  (I have a frozen left shoulder at the moment) here's what I came up with. (I hope that's not cheating too much).

I managed to colour the bear with Prismacolor pencils (over a few days to avoid my shoulder becoming too painful).  Loads of Stickles glitter glue "Star Dust" was used to highlight teddies flowers etc.

The bear is a digi called Teddy with Roses from Pink Gem Designs.  He's such a cutie isn't he?

The card started life with a 6"x6" Kraft cardstock, matted with lime green and DP from the Papermania Spring Chic paper stack.

The butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch finished with some 3mm flat-backed adhesive pearls

The inside of the card was finished to match the front

Please visit the challenge and have a go at joining in . . . and bring out those teddies, they never fail to raise a smile !!!

Thanks for visiting me
