Teddy Bo Tuesday (Mid challenge reminder)

It's a Tuesday, it's a Tuesday, it's a Tuesday!!! 

Happy, happy Teddy Bo Tuesday!?!?  What wonderful things are happening in your life right now?!?!  Is the weather nice where you are?!  Have you lost another wee bit of weight?!  Did the postman say hello this morning?!?!?!  I hope we can all find a little bit of something wonderful...even if it starts off tiny!!!


Looking forward to a delivery of a little magazine this week!!!!  There just might be a little feature about a couple of bears we might know!!!!  Details to follow....xxxxx ;o)


After Edna's daughter's wedding last week Teddy Bo Towers has returned to the quiet, calm place that it normally is.......;o)..........we've got a few more celebrations for some of our ladies in the near future which I'm sure will result in FAR too much potato vodka...although it will give Claire yet another excuse to knit some 'little' things!!!  Don't know what I'm talking about?!?!?  Well.....maybe you should visit the Teddy Bo Challenge blog on a Friday!!!


Quick wee reminder that we're just over half way through our latest challenge......but it closes on Sunday 16th October at midnight UK time....and it couldn't be easier.......this challenge's theme is
 "your favourite colour"

So, what's new in the shop this week?!!?

And what have the wonderful Design Team come up with....well.....what a selection!!!


I have planned on making Christmas ornaments for my kids and my nieces and nephews.
These two are for the boys.

Haunted House Easel-Card

Tim Holtz, on the fence
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug, Skeleton Scroll

My favourite colour WHITE!! (The most colourless colour maybe, but I am crazy about it!) =)
The image is TeddyBoBea_017 in sketch sepia.(so cute,and don´t need to be coloured 
when it is so fine as it is)
I have embossed the white papers and the yellow one I have used a Martha Stewart heart punch on.
The image is cut out with Spellbinders



I have chosen TEDDYBOBEA_TABS_002. Printed onto kraft cardstock and coloured
with prisma's, blended with sansodor.
I've used turquoise glitter card alongside Bo Bunny Gypsy Lace.
The border punch is Martha Stewart double loop.
The flower is handmade and the leaves are cut using Marianne dies.
Other than the kraft cardstock that the image is printed onto, the other kraft cardstock is actually the inside of a box of coke cans.



  I've used Teddy Bo_138 for my advent calendar. I printed the number flash cards from Sparklebox and punched the holes with my cinch and added some book rings.
