Biscuit and marmalade

Hi everybody,

I would like to show you my latest creation, called 'Biscuit'. 
Biscuit is completely hand sewn. He is approximately 6 inches - 15 cm tall and made of a yellow, high quality mohair. He is filled with plastic pellets and a polyester filling. 
His body and arms are partly wired so they can bend. His face, nose and paw pads are needle felted and he has a hand sculpted mouth and nails. In front of him is a glass of mixed berry marmalade. 
The marmalade is made of polymer clay and liquid Fimo. He has also some marmalade on his face and paw. Biscuit loves marmalade!!!

I have made this bear to take part at the Bears&Buds URSA Awards Competition 2012.
Being too busy with my job at the moment I have hardly made the deadline of June 19. Phew.
 I hope this lack of time is going to change soon because I miss creating!!!

Anyways, I hope you like my bear 'Biscuit' :D

Hugs, Mel

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Never heard of it before but I was happy to read I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.

So what did I do? Or what do I have to do next? 
A quick peak on their website told me this:

About the VBA
Hello Versatile Bloggers! Hello Nominators and Nominees — I decided to put this little blog together to assist those of you who’ve no idea what the Versatile Blogger award is, how you earn it, and what your responsibilities are once you have been nominated, i.e. awarded.
Feel free to copy the Versatile Blogger blog-button from this site and put it on yours, if and only if, you’ve been nominated/awarded.

VBA Rules
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy. 

So: Thank you  Mythillogical! 

  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.

  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)

( I can't help that all the links end on 'nl' . I hope it still works for you. ) 
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.

  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Gonna do that next! 

 So I hope I did everything right...

Thank you!
Love,  Mel
