Ready Teddy Go .....challenge and blog hop

Morning peeps hope you are all well, you might need a cuppa to get through this
settle down and get comfortable 'cos this is going to be a marathon of a post . . . lots to tell you, lots of exciting news and most importantly lots of fantastic prizes to be won.

Part One - The Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge

The new Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge #13 theme is

"Anything Goes"

Speaks for itself really, anything goes but please don't forget that your entry must feature a bear or teddy as the main image.  
Unfortunately each month Julie-Anne has to delete one or two entries because there is no bear there and it makes her feel very mean but she has to be fair to others taking part and the clue is in the name Ready-Teddy-Go challenge.

A new feature this month and for future challenges is the introduction of the Top 3 Winner's spots besides the draw winner and the offer of a GDT spot for the selected winner.  

The prize for the August challenge is sponsored by Mishelflo Creative Crafting

Hi Everyone! 
I am Michelle from Mishelflo Creative Crafting a small online Craft Shop which I like to think of as your "Crafty Corner Shop".  It's just me who runs it, from making the coffee to packing the parcels.  I hope you like what I have chosen for the August Challenge Prize.  I just adore IndigoBlu! 
This is what you will receive ..........

1 x IndigoBlu "Discover your Passion" Rubber Stamp
1 x IndigoBlu Slim Jims (5 x different size Acrylic Blocks)
1 x Inkadinkadoo Stamping Surface
(this is an 8" x 8" Heat Resistant Rubber Mat)
5 x various coloured Versa Magic Dew Drop Ink Pads

Good Luck everyone!

Wow, fantastic prize I'm sure you'll agree . . . thank you Michelle
The challenge will run all month from the 1st to 31st of August so plenty of time to take part and don't forget you can enter up to 4 times per month as long as you enter something different  each time.

For my tri-shutter card I have used an image from Cuddly Buddly, so apt for when we had the sunshine, now its back to the rain......just hope the sun comes back out real soon. The papers were a freebie in a magazine.
