Something for the kiddies

 I decided a little while ago to have a play with some teddy stamps that my son chose when he was about 5 as stamps for his party invitations and thankyou cards, and although its nearly 11 years ago I can honestly say I don't think I've used them since, perhaps on the odd scrapbook page but nothing else. I determined as they are so cute I ought to try and decided clean and simple would be best. I stamped and coloured a couple of the images and then cut them out. I then went over them with versamark and clear embossing powder to give them a glazed effect , then simply mounted them on white and gold. The insides of each card has a stamped and coloured image on the inlay. I remember how when my son was little he and his friends would all be fascinated with the smallest of things, I suppose its because to them relatively speaking they aren't small are they. 

Over at Charisma they have a challenge to create something for the kiddies, so I thought I might enter these cards into their challenge.

Just cute bears also have a challenge I might be able to scrape into, it's called all white, you are allowed to use colour on your image only the rest of your card is to be white, do you think they'll count my image mount as my image and let me off with the little bit of gold, well I can try can't I. Hope you all have a fab weekend, its miserable here at the mo butit's suppose to be sunny again tomorrow.Thanks for popping by.
