Teddy Bo Tuesday - Pink and Brown mid challenge reminder

 we do hope that you can find the time to join us in this challenge as this colour combination seems to be very popular right now in Blogland..!

SO...what's NEW this week!!

Well.....as we no longer have a weekly Teddy Bo release I thought it might be interesting to draw some new FairyD images......and I know how hard it can be for people to make male cards, so I thought I'd try and help out a wee bit by drawing some boys for a change....we have so many beautiful girl characters out in Blogland but we don't always have so many boys.....so this week we have 4 NEW ones....oh and a cat!!! ;O)


...and because we're half way through a challenge some of the girls have used some Teddy Bo from last week and some of them have used some new ones from this week!!!  Either way they're all stunning!!!!  Thank you ladies...x
