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!??!

Teddy Bo Tuesday


Goooooooood Morning...........I hope you're well this beautiful Spring morning?!?!  Does it look like Spring outside your window?!?!  Yes?!?  No?!?!  Well, we're very fortunate and have a gorgeous sunny (but cold) day here in Scotland.....so I hope you're having the same kind of weather (actually, maybe a bit warmer would be better) wherever you are in the world.

I can't quite believe it's March already......here we go chasing another year away!!  But the great thing about March is that the weather changes for the better and people are happier.  We've also got Easter and Mother's Day (UK and some European countires) so we've got some fabulous cards to show off this month's new releases.

SO...what's NEW this week

And of course.....with new graphics come gorgeous cards....x

Here she is! I LOVE her :0

I have used TeddyBea _258 and coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers too.
I have used an old scrapbook kit for the papers and embellishments along wth a doily cut on the silhouette.
I have, of course,  added glitter to her wings and star.
