Once a year on the 18th day of April at precisely 12.10am a gazillion sparkling stars fall to earth. These are not your everyday type of Stars they are Beary special. Each Star magically finds its way to a good and much loved teddy bear on earth. The special Stars bring each teddy one wish.
The Teddies hold a Star tightly in their paws as they make their wish, and once the wish is made it disappears.
Aloysius being the oldest and wisest bear always made the first wish, and it was always the same "I wish for Peace on Earth" he said sincerely.
Next it was Princess Tammy's wish "I wish for an end to illness, disease, and disability"
George was the next to pick up his star and make a wish "I wish for everyone to be honest, decent and kind" he said very strongly.
It should have been Bernard's turn next, but he was busy taking a nap.
So Rose made her wish, "I wish for all wrongs to be put right " she roared
I painted a Chipboard plaque with Gesso and when dry I covered it with Grandmas Teacup paint
The ring a Ring of Rosie's rhyme fitted nicely around the edge. I stamped it using a versamarker stamp pad, and embossed with white embossing powder.
The lovely teddies enjoyed being stamped and coloured, and having extra adornments such as scarves, bows, gems etc
Chipboard letters spelled T e d d I e s and I painted them white, and used the flourish from the Nursery Rhyme set to stamp over them with versamarker.I embossed this using blue embossing powder, keeping the blue and white background theme.
The Teddies all shuffled around until they were happy with their positions, and
I adhered them with 3 D sticky pads.
The all important Magical Stars were the finishing touch. I spread Slap It on through the Stars stencil and shook lashing of Unicorn Sparkles over the top.When dry I cut the Stars out and adhered them onto the plaque with the teddies.
You could paint the teddies different colours to give them their own characters. You could also add hats and other clothing and adornments to dress them up!
Thread some white organza ribbon through your plaque to hangs and display as desired.
The Teddies and myself thank you,so much for stopping by to visit us today.
I would like to enter Wishing Teddy Stars into the following challenges.

Whenever I am creating a little crafty project, I can't seem to help making up a story to go with it! So I am delighted that this month the Design Team at Indigoblu have been asked to create a story!
There once was a lovely young lady, who was a little different from all of the other girls her age.She was kind and thoughtful, but she just didn't seem to fit in.
One sunny spring afternoon she was sitting alone in the forest, trying very hard not to weep. When suddenly.... she heard a twinkling sound. She looked up, but at first she couldn't see anything making the magical sound. Then she turned her head a little to the right, and smiling over at her was the most beautiful Unicorn! She rubbed her eyes in disbelief, but he really was real !
"Hello" he said in a friendly Unicorn sort of a way. "Could you please help me " asked the Unicorn "I think I am lost, and I can't see any other Unicorns around."I am feeling a bit scared a.n.d...well lonely"
"Where do you want to go ?" asked the young lady smiling.
"I'm not sure" replied the Unicorn "Somewhere I won't feel different I just want to fit in, and be loved" replied the Unicorn.
The young lady wheeled over to the Unicorn and reached up and wrapped her arms around him.She held him as tightly as she could and the Unicorn sighed a deep and happy sigh.
"You can come home with me"she whispered, "I will love you forever, and look after you."
"And I you." replied the Unicorn.
If you ever see a trail of sparkles anywhere you can be sure the young lady and her Unicorn were there!
All the details of how I made this canvas can be found on the Indigoblu blog.
Thank you so much for visiting me today, and I hope you enjoyed the story.
