If you go down the woods today... might find a bear there! He, he, or not! This week the fabulous Faye has chosen us to use an image including a teddy at Cupcake Craft Challenges.

We're being sponsored by the generous Sassy Studio Designs, who are offering 4 Digital images to a lucky winner. And our Special September sponsor, Bunny Zoe's, are offering a lucky winner a £15 Gift Voucher. Visit our blog for all the details and to see the teams gorgeous projects.

I went down to my stamp drawers.....and I didn't find any teddies or even cute bears. But as I love Penny Black stamps and especially the images made by Margaret Sherry, I decided to use one of her cross stitch charts. You can find the chart as a free download here at the Cross Sticher. I used the Best of mag with loads of fab charts.

The frame is made of fabrics and I kept it bare for some later decoration. This will be a part of an ABC set if I'll get around to make the other two letters!

Edited to add:
I'm entering The Crafty Calender Challenge: Let Sleeping Bears Lie

Have a fabulous week!
