Once again we have been very blessed with the response to our challenge. For such a new website, blog and ultimately NEW character you seem to have really taken Bo & Bea into your hearts and for that I thank you xxxxx
So......who wants to know the winners of our last challenge?!?!
Well.....this was a toughy.......SO many beautiful cards to choose from.....but our Design Team AND Kathy, our Guest Designer for March, all voted and I'm delighted to say that.....drum roll please.................
Our Overall Winner is

with our 2 runners up
Congratulations to you all....I'm sure you already know how much I love your cards!! Please email me at support to get your badges and prizes.
And now onto this week's challenge. Challenge No 6 is all about Buttons and Bows. My wonderful DT have been VERY clever this week and we even have BO cards with buttons and bows...and he looks FANTABULOUS in them!!! ;o)
First up is Colette - "For my card this week I used Teddy Bo Rockstar, and made an easel card with dangly bits! It is eight inches square, so Teddy Bo is mahoosive!I have added my sentiment to the buttons by printing the wording onto Safmat and then sticking to the buttons. The bows are made from jute string, all papers used for card and paper piecing Bo's clothes came from Clipart Fairy, Teddy Bo is coloured in photoshop."
(Stamp used: "Let me entertain you" - TEDDYBO_041)

Next up is Claire......she's made 2 cards for us this week. "The base card is pink bazzel, the circle is cut on my silhouette and is normal white card. Teddy Bo and Bea were coloured with Promarkers.

I've added a few buttons from my stash and so is the ribbon."
(Stamp used "Kiss & Cuddle" - TEDDYBOBEA_018)

(Stamp used: "When you wish upon a star" - TEDDYBEA_003)
Debbie has used a fantastic colour combination.....
(Stamp used: "Teddy Bea little hands" - TEDDYBEA_049)
I have made a card this week...although I have used 'artistic licence' with the buttons and bows theme......Bea is wearing some buttons in her hat and there's a 'kind of' bow?!?!?!
(Stamp used: "Mum-BEA" - TEDDYBEA_052 )
"Used lots of scraps and coloured with a mixture of Pro-markers, Copics and coloured pencils!!"
Tammy has used the same image but her card has a beautiful delicate look to it.
(Stamp used: "Mum-BEA" - TEDDYBEA_052)
"This digi stamp is one of the new ones, isn't it just gorgeous? Though I have changed the boots - using adobe I cloned Bea's knitting on to the tops of the boots. So now she looks like she owns her very Uggs. It's amazing what you can achieve with digital stamps. The MUM wording I filled with patterned paper from a PcCrafter set I had.
Used a little silicone glue to give 3D effect on the wording. Stands out well. Flowers are as always from my Wild Orchid Craft stash - a must have for any card maker. Link is on my side bar.
We have another bumper pack of digi stamps this week.....a couple of Mother's Day ones and
SO ladies and gents....the name of the game this week is Buttons and Bows and some Christening ones.

So....the name of the game this week is "Buttons and Bows"
