CD Sunday - Teddy Bears
A great selection of 'Frosty' cards last week - thank you. My own 'Frosty Snowman' is now wending it's way North. A good friend admired it on here so it is on it's way to you Joyce.
Wendy P (Purple Wendy) has chosen this weeks theme of Teddy Bears. I don't think we ever lose our love of our Teddies. I have one on my bed which was a gift from friends. They had asked me what I would like them to bring me back from the States and I said Harrison Ford. I was disappointed on seeing them come through customs without the said gentleman but they did bring me a gorgeous teddy instead. Guess what he is called.
For my card I used Joanna Sheen's - Jayne Netley Mayhew CD 1
During the recovery from my broken arm I have had to abandon the use of my Grand Calibur. It just hurts too much trying to exert the pressure needed to hold the machine down on the work surface. I have found the 'sucker' almost useless. I have though invested in a Big Shot and have been really impressed with how solid and steady it is and can do most work almost one handed or with a much lighter touch. I have lent out the GC on a semi permanent loan until I decide if I will ever be able to use it again. I don't do enough A4 work at the moment to worry about the smaller capacity of the Big Shot.
I look forward to seeing all those teddies and perhaps reading about the ones you still have or own up to having.
