Teddy Bea goes swinging

I had so much fun making this card. This is my very first attempt to make an easel card. I wanted to enter the Teddy Bo challenge calling for a "shaped card" so I thought I'd go for a circle easel. (There are a lot of really good tuts online if you just Google "circle easel cards". )

This is Teddy Bea Swing & she's a "pencil sketch". Easy peasy to color. I put a little brad on the top of the rope swing so that she could actually swing back & forth. LOL Too much fun! Wish I had one of these IRL. LOL

This sentiment is from a Whimsy Stamps set I recently won from Stampin' Mindy called "Party Mini Letter Seals" (Thanks Mindy).

Teddy Bea & I would like to thank you for visiting us today. May your day be filled with "Moments to Cherish". As always..........thank you for your lovely comments. You are so sweet to take the time to leave me some love along the way.
