Teddy Bo Tuesday

Gooood Morning everyone.....so glad to share this gorgeous Tuesday morning with you all.  May I take this time please to thank you for all the good wishes I have received since I last posted about my father's operation....I'm DELIGHTED to say that he is home (much earlier than we expected him to be) and is feeling fantastic (you'd NEVER guess he'd had major surgery less than two weeks ago)...I'm very fortunate to have such a positive role model in my father and I know that his attitude is what has increased his recovery rate...long may it continue...xxxxx

SO......what's happening this week?!!?  Well.... it's Team B's turn to host our new challenge...and of course as we have new members to our little family some of them are making their Design Team debut today....but before that let's have a look at what's new in the store this week and also find out the winners to our last challenge.

I have made a card to hold 4 tealights using TeddyBoBea_132, I hadn't tried this before but it was really easy to do!  I have used a scrapbook paper from Teresa Collins called Everyday moments. It's double sided and the inside is the yellow polka dots, so I have used that to mat and layer. I think I may have gone a little overboard with the buttons lol! I've coloured Teddy Bo and Bea in with Promarker.
