CUC DT Praying Teddie Bear card

It's that time again! Craft Us Crazy challenge #6 is here & this time we would love to see your "Thinking of You with Sentiment and/or Animals" creations. To me what says "Thinking of You" more than telling someone that you're praying for them.

We want to thank all of you who have entered our Craft Us Crazy challenges. Our last challenge had over 260 entries.....and what beautiful creations we have seen. We now have over 270 followers! That's simply amazing for a brand new challenge blog. Thank you so much for your support! We couldn't do it without each & every one of you!

Robyn's Fetish is the sponsor of our "Thinking of You" challenge & they very generously donated this cute, cute, cute little bear praying next to the bed. How precious is that!

Such a sweet & tender hearted little bear! It's called "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep". Sooooo precious! This sweet graphic had such a vintage feel to it that I decided to paper piece the quilt on the bed.......just like a 'real' quilt.....only without the sewing & no pricked fingers! In fact when my oldest son was little (over 30 years ago) I made him a quilt out of these very same colors. The paper piecing was a little ambitious for me but I managed to get it done without too much hair pulling. LOL I used NitWits DP for the quilt as well as all of the background. The rest was colored with my Copics.

This sweet sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC. Paulette has such a wide range of lovely graphics & sentiments perfect for every occasion. She has also very generously given away more than 2,000 graphics & sentiments on her Create with TLC blog.

Remember that our monthly sponsor is Stamp Fairy. They have a FANtastic 50% sale going on right now so hurry on over there to pick up some of their darling designs. I don't know when the sale ends but I'm hoping I can take some of those cutie patooties home with me before it does.....LOL (money is really really really tight right now.....squeak, squeak, squeak). ***Note: sale is over.....boohoo
I followed this great sketch #150 from Sketch Saturday for my card design.....but I flipped it over.
