Please vote for me!!!

Hiya

I entered a Teddy Bear contest and I would love for you to vote for my teddy bear.  :-)

Go to this website:-
http://melodylanedesigns.blogspot.ca/2013/01/naked-teddy-bear-parade-contest.html

Scroll down where you will see a contest with a bunch of teddy bears.  You can only vote ONCE, so I hope you vote for my teddy bear. :-)  The names aren't shown so you'll have to look for this one:-




It's a Ladybug Teddy Bear.  I wonder why that would be, eh?  LOL

Mine is VERY different in that I didn't just use a teddy bear from the Cricut Teddy Bear cartridge.  I improvised and created my 
Ladybug Teddy Bear by using two cartridges, and fussy-cutting to make it my own.  J

I'd sure appreciate your vote!! :-)  You can find her:-

3rd row, second from the left.

p.s.  The contest ends Feb. 2/13.

Teddy Bear Ladybug


I just got one of the cutest Cricut Cartridges ever ---- Teddy Bear Parade.  The teddy bears are just toooooo stinkin’ cute!   There are 50 bears total.



Even tho they are adorable, there wasn’t a Ladybug teddy bear, so I set off to create one myself.

I started w/ a Teddy Bear body, cutting the arms off. Then I used the Ladybug body, face, wings & antennae from the Create a Critter cartridge. I had to snip here and there, but I think she turned out pretty nice. Heck, she's just tooooooo stinkin' cute --- is what she is. J

Here she is, in all her glory:-


I put her on a “thank you” card that I’ll be sending to a dear MB friend, who did something nice for me.  Hope she likes it!! 



Inside:-


Tools/Items:-
Cricut Expression
Cricut Cartridges – Teddy Bear Parade; Create a Critter
Cardstock -- white (for the card); black, red, beige
Patterned paper (for background, layers)
