Teddy Bo Tuesday

Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday!!

Good Morning Teddy Bo-ettes.....how are you all this morning?!??!?!  It's another 'fresh' day here at the Towers...it's trying to snow again...so with all this bad weather and our design team's reluctance to wear much clothing or go outside without a tankful of schnapps!!....we've been doing some Spring Cleaning this week.  Let me tell you....there are cobwebs in places you WOULDN'T expect them...isn't that right Colette!!?!?!?


Our Blog hop was a great success but we still have one or two to claim their prize...so please check the prize-winners post to see if you were one of our winners. 

Helle (our resident 'cocktail shaker') has been walking the floorboards at night awaiting the birth of her first Granddaughter......well.....thank goodness this little angel has finally arrived as Helle was driving us all potty (she has a VERY squeaky floorboard in her room and kept picking that one to walk over!!)  So how delighted was she when this photo arrived on the Teddy Bo T'internet to show us what she looked like....


She's only 3 days old here and isn't she just beautiful.  Little Jessica doesn't know us all yet (we'll break her in gently)...but her 'extended' Teddy Bo family want to wish her and her family lots of cuddles and kisses...we have packed Helle off for a couple of days back home to visit this precious little baby and have warned her she must make her partner Freddy take LOTS and LOTS of pictures.....xxxx

SO...what's NEW this week


and of course......with all the broken nights of sleep and lots of Spring cleaning getting done...the Design Team appear to have magically made another collection of wonderful cards for us all to view!!!

    Teddy Bo Tuesday

    Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday to you all. 

    It's quite cold here at Teddy Bo Towers this week........no snow, which is good but oh my word is it cold!!   Hopefully Spring isn't too far away as the geese and the daffodils are quite confused here as the flowers are in bloom and the geese have already flown in...the poor things....they don't know what's going on with the weather!!

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

    There had been a few requests for a Cupid Bo this week....and I don't know WHAT I was thinking but I forgot to give him wings initially!!!!.....Thankfully though Colette was able to tell me exactly what she was looking for..and oh my she's made a wonderful card....thank goodness she convinced me to draw another Bo!!!
