If at first....

If at first you don't succeed, try again.  I decided that I would enter the Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge this month, the challenge is stitching and I thought to myself LOTV have some lovely teddy images so out came my LOTV box.  After sorting through the box I discovered an image that I thought would also be ideal to make a valentines card for my husband so out came the sewing machine and I made my card.

Well, can you imagine my horror when on Valentine's Day my husband opened his card and I realised that I had entered a card into the Ready-Teddy-Go challenge with two adorable little puppies on it - not a teddy in sight.  I really am beginning to worry about myself, my only excuse is I do have a rather nasty cold at the moment.  So if any of the lovely ladies from Ready-Teddy-Go are reading this would you please delete entry number 6, yes that's right the one with the puppies on it.

Well, not to be defeated out came the LOTV box and the sewing machine and here is a card that actually has a teddy on it:

It turned out rather pink, but it will be great for a little girl I know who has birthday coming up soon.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front:

Card Recipe:

Image:  LOTV - I Baked a Cake
Papers:  Papermania - Honey & hugs
Card Stock:  Core'dinations
Tools:  Sewing machine, Punch Bunch flower punches

Oh Pauline, I have giggled at your post. Last week I entered a card in a Teddy challenge and when I showed it Emma she said 'aren't they cats not teddies', I had to go and change it sharpish!!!

This is a lovely card, your stitching looks great. I love the flowers too, very pretty.
