We're back

Well....as we said last week, WE'RE BACK!!....and boy have we 'BEE'n busy!!! ;)
It's another sunny day here, which does sound fantastic but the temperatures are still very high.....so I hope that you have a cooler day wherever you are.

SO....what have we got in store for you!??!  Well, we have some new releases, the first for a long while and we hope you like them.  We have some absolutely gorgeous cards from the Design Team...AND, we have a Design Team Call....what more do you want/!?!?

Now, let's have a look at what's in the store this week.....

That was easy wasn't it....so now let's see the absolutely amazing cards....







Crikey, weren't they gorgeous!!!!?! 


 Now, don't you want to be part of what we consider to be the happiest design team in Crafting Land!??!?!

What do I need to do I hear you ask!?!

WELL, it's easy.....on our
facebook page we want you to post your 'bestestest' Teddy Bo & Co cards/crafts and tell us why you want to be part of our team.....simples!!!

WHAT!?!?!  That easy!?!?  YES!!!!!

We want people who will love our bears the way we do (we've VERY protective of them) and who will showcase them in the very best way.  My design team is the most wonderful group of girls, past and present.....so much so that they ask to come back after they've taken a break!!!!   This in itself should tell you how wonderful they are!

SO, what's expected of you!?!?

We will have two releases a month, so you will be in one of two teams.  To coincide with the releases we will be bringing back our challenges so you'll be required to make a card/finished product with the current releases...so that amounts to ONE card a month!!!  Of course, if you just can't resist making more than one card then nobody will be upset!!

NOW......get your pens and pencils out as the countdown has already started....our Design Team Call ends on September 30th!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also want to say a very sad goodbye to Debbie who has been with us from the beginning, it's been absolutely wonderful having her with us and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for loving my wee bears so much.....and a big HELLO AGAIN to Claire and Elaine who couldn't resist us and asked to come back!!!

See you soon....Gayle and the girls...xxx

TEDDY BO TUESDAY - WE'RE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gooood Morning everyone...it's so wonderful to be back.
If you've been wondering where the bears have been hiding well they took a wee sabbatical whilst Gayle had a wee go at photography....then Gayle's hubby got a new job and they moved 3621 miles away from Scotland and they now live in Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE.  It's quite different to Scotland as we have the sun....every day!!!!!!!!!!!!  We get about two weeks of rain here in January but it's wonderful and we're just about getting used to the heat, although the bears do have to get clipped more often now to keep their 'fur coats' short!!! ;O)
We've lost a few ladies on the DT since the last time we posted and gained a few (one of them just couldn't keep away)...to all our Design Team I want to thank you SO much for sticking by us even when I disappeared off the face of the earth!!!! We also want to welcome Karen on board who will replace Donna who has stepped down...thank you Donna for your time with us...x
SO...what's new this week?!?!
All available now at www.teddybo.com

So.....what wonderful cards have the girls made I hear you ask!??!
