Teddy Bo Tuesday (Christmas Mid challenge reminder)

Gooooood Morning everyone in Blogland.  Who can believe we're now counting 'sleeps' before Christmas?!??!  I hope you're all enjoying the peace and quiet before the storm?!  For all of our wonderful friends in America I hope that your Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful one and that you all enjoy your time with your family and friends...x

It's been very busy here at Teddy Bo Towers......we had Edna's birthday yesterday.....oh boy....that was a wild party......!!!  Poor Kathy's had to fly home as she's got folks over for Thanksgiving......lucky girl.....she managed to book her flight for early yesterday morning so that she didn't have to tidy up!!!!!!!  I tell you, she better have some fabulous cards made for when she comes back!!!! ;O)

SO....what's new this week?!

So....have the DT girlies managed to make any cards this week?!?!  Well......goodness only knows how they found the time but they did and oh my....they are just wonderful...x

"  Not sure why its called a magic card though.  Seen these around blog land so thought I'd give it a go. Totally loving it, so different from a standard square card and a little elegant looking too. "

" Coloured TEDDYBOBEA_087 with pro-markers.
I have used a mixture of DCWV - LINEN CLOSET and FIRST EDITION - ISABELLE.
Both are my favorite papers and colour combinations.
 MARTHA STEWART punch been used at the edge of the card.
 Small snow flakes are buttons - got these from HOBBY CRAFT. 
Strange me not having flowers but the card didn't really need any - plain but looks sweet."

Tammy as placed a link on her blog for this tutorial.



I have chosen to play with TEDDYBO_156
Coloured with a mixture of copic's and prisma's.  The gold velum papers are Papermania Signature A Christmas Carol.  The bow is satin edged organza tied in a double bow from my local craft shop and finished with a flower spacer bought from a craft show.


TeddyBoBea_087 Ollifant! Just the name makes you happy...=)

Haven´t done the inside of the card all set ,don´t know if it´s a birthdaycard or something else yet!

My card for Tuesday. I love these two, and I am going to use them
 for my Mum and Dad's card this year. The papers are from the ClipArt Fairy.
 I added just a little ribbon says Happy Christmas and of course a button!


 I had to use this image TeddyBea _169, and remembered I had this cute paper with umbrellas that would be perfect for it!!Its called "its raining , its pouring". I added the sentiment from the paper kit, Rain or Shine, You're a Friend of Mine! 3 buttons, and a bow! I colored the image with promarkers. After I coloured it I clear embossed the rain coat and hat and boots.  Then I added some glossy accents to the puddle for a bit of dimension!
The text says "Thanks"
I have embossed his belly with White foam embossing powder
...a simple card,no time for a lot of fancy stuff!! =)

Hi Gayle
Hope you are well. I am loving the new Teddy Bo images and think I need to take a trip to the shop again.
I was wondering if you received the emails regarding the sponsorship for Ready Teddy Go. If you are still able to do something for us that would be great.
Hugs Sally xxx
