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

For the sentiment I used die cuts but I can't remember the make.
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.


  1. Fab card Carol, I do love this image, I used this for my first ever CD card a few years ago, x

  2. Gorgeous card Carol, love the image and the layout. I too, have a Big Shot and I agree it is easy to use. Got mine when my GC broke for a second time. Sending you a hug and hope you are feeling a little better.
