Cupcake Craft Challenge...

The Cupcake Craft Challenge this week is Childhood Memories... boy, does this conjure up a load of memories.  I am sure you all had a Teddy to sleep with at night. When Mom and Dad kissed you goodnight and you were left on your own to fall asleep, you'd probably pull him closer towards your chest like I did for comfort just before sleep took over.  And he'd be pulled even closer if you heard any strange noises, thinking that the boogey man was under your bed! You'd shut your eyes tight wishing that the morning light would appear through the curtains.... yes, childhood memories can be a wonderful thing and I certainly hope yours were pleasant ones, as were mine!

I chose this cute little image, which was a freebie I found on one of those free colouring pages on the 'Net. She looks as if she's on her way to bed with her little Teddy.  I've kept my card very plain, using a lovely Pink AC cardstock for the base of my card. I really can't recall the DP I've used, as it's bits and pieces that are left over from the original 12x12's. I used sticky dots to raise my image onto a cuttlebugged piece of cream card.  The only embellies are my gorgeous pearls, the lovely  cherry blossom and roses in the corner, all from Paola's shop.

I really hope you like this one and I hope the team at Cupcake Craft like it too.  Happy crafting friends... hugs Sharon x

Sharon, your blog and cards are delightful! I'm so glad you visited my blog (thanks Peggy).

My son visited Cape Town (his best friend is from there) a few years ago and just loved it.

Thank you for joining us at Cupcake Craft dear Sharon ! Your card is so so sweet : lovely soft colours and the image is really cute... Thank you for sharing your special memories too... I didn't have a teddy when I was little, maybe that's the reason why I have got some now !!! Good luck ! Hugs and smiles from Catherine
