Sketch Saturday #378

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by our wonderful friends at
Simon Says Stamp

I had a wonderful visit with my bestest matey and fellow crafter, Julie, recently.  We spent a few days crafting together between seeing the lovely sites of the British Lake District where she now lives.    I bought this Indigo  Blu image called Baby Aloysius when one of our side trips included a visit to a craft store and I teamed it with some new LOTV Nitwits papers and a step card die I gave to Julie as a present and borrowed during my stay with her.   

I heat embossed the teddy's crown and decorated it with pearls. Julie donated some lovely lace for my project and I thought the little crown charm was the perfect finishing touch.  My sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. 

Vannessa came up with a splendid sketch which I only used on the central panel of my step card.   My fellow Saturdays have lots of lovely inspiration for you.  Do visit their blogs and share some love with them and then scooch some space on your craft table and join in the fun.

I am entering my card into the following challenges
Make My Monday - Something beginning with F (Fur, Friend, Face)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Shaped cards
Simon Says Stamp - Use a Stamp for Stamptember (and a hop)
Creative Inspirations -  vintage

What a great image Lesley! I love Teddies and this one is fabulous. Love the colours and layout too.
Also, I wanted to say you will be missed over at CASS but sometimes we just need a breather... I think we've all been there, we take on too much and then finally have to say 'whoa'. But it was great working with you and I'll still see you out here in blogland.

Lesley, I used to collect Teddies, and was a quilter, so your card really hits a note with me, just love it! Thanks so much for sharing this cutie with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
