For a Little Man

Welcome

And a warm welcome to my newest follower Hilary Wright, unfortunately I cannot find a blog to link so you and I can visit her - Hilary please contact me if that is what you would like.

I made this for a great-grandson who is turning two shortly.


The background is a one-layer paper napkin/serviette, and unfortunately I didn't quite get it onto the backing card  as straight as I would have liked... 


The sentiment was stamped and white embossed onto a red hand cut banner to match the base card
You can just see some of the texture of the napkin that showed up after gluing


The image was unbranded, but named Tattered Teddy.  I stamped it in Versafine Clair Pinecone ink, and coloured him with pastels/chalks, and popped him up on foam dotes


I decided that the card was rather dull for a little guy, so added Kindy Glitz to the polka dots on the background, and then also added some iridescent shell shaped bling 


I finished the inside with some red striped washi tape.

A heart felt thank  you for all those who expressed their get well wishes - covid itself has not been too bad thanks to some antiviral meds, but a pre-existing chest infection has turned to pneumonia.  I am at home, and on so many meds it's a case of shake me and I will rattle, but I am stable, and I get a daily call from the doctors office, and am well supervised by my daughter. I very energetically spend my days online or knitting....

Oh, how cute! You can almost feel the fuzz on the bear as it pops off the paper. What a darling image and a delightful card.

Oh dearMaxine, I had no idea you were ill. Covid and then pneumonia! Thank goodness you are being well supervised, how lucky to have the doctor phone you like that. May I wish you well soon.
In the meantime, the card for your great- grandson is lovely. I love those tattered bears, I think of them more as care bears and he is just perfect for a two year old. Especially now the card is blinged up and in a bright colour.
God Bless - take are, Neet xx
