An army of Pudsey Bears....

Hiya!

I just wanted to share with you my calendars that I've been making in aid of Children in Need!

While I was at the NEC craft show I found out that Lili of the Valley were producing a stamp of Pudsey Bear - isn't he fab!!! I was going to make some cards with him but then thought that he might be better used as a calendar....


I printed out the backgrounds on the computer - some of them have spots while the rest have stars. I stamped Pudsey onto yellow card, cut him out and added his bandage cut from white card and coloured with my brush markers. The sentiment comes with the stamp along with a couple of others and then this "Handmade for you" stamp to go on the back....


I spent my weekend cutting out an army of Pudsey Bears as you can see here:


I had quite a little production line going!


I've been selling them in the school playground (thank you Mrs Payne for letting me!). I made 20 to start with but they all sold out by this morning so I've had to go and buy some more bits to make more. Awwww, the disappointed looks on the kids faces when I ran out :-( So I've spent this afternoon making another 10 and I've got the bits to make 10 more.... I wonder if I'll have to go back to my craft shop for more supplies later in the week???

Challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Creature Comforts
CRAFT - Cute
Crafty Ribbons - Anything but a card
Squiggle Stamps - Anything but a card

Right, I'd better go and get ready - time to take them up to the school again!

Love 'n' hugs,
