My Teddy Bear...

...I know, I know, where have I been?!!  Gosh, these days are absolutely flying by - the children are already on half term and the clocks go back next weekend!  (Oh no!!)  I'm not very good once the nights draw in - I think I should have beeen a bear and hibernated all winter!  Which takes me nicely onto today's project...I came across this lovely little poem about a Teddy Bear and just knew I had to use it with the little girl from the 12 Cards of Christmas disc...
...I wanted to make something other than a card, so decided on a wall hanging...
...I love this little poem, which I found here, it's all about a child's love for their teddy bear, which instantly made me think of this girl and her bear...
...I printed the digistamp 3 times - on white paper, the birdhouse plaid paper and the pudding swirl paper, all from the 12 Cards of Christmas disc.  I then cut around her pyjama top and bottoms and paper pieced them onto the white image, which I'd coloured with my Promarkers.  Before attaching her top, I roughly cut around the heart from the white layer, so that I could colour it and use on the top layer (hope this makes sense!?)  Because of the wording in the poem, I drew a cross over one of the bear's eyes and added a couple of tiny pieces of cotton wool, as if his stuffing is coming out (Awww!)..
...I dressed the hanging with some of the gardenias (think that's what they're called) from Crafts4U and cut some Sizzix leaves from pale green card and added a few punched mini flowers coloured with Powder Blue.  The pretty border is a long X-Cut one and the backing paper is the pudding plaid, also from the 12 Cards of Christmas.  Hope you like it and thanks for popping over!
I'm entering this project into the following challenges :
