Teddy Bo Tuesday

Gooood Morning friends....how are you today!?!?
We've been busy at Teddy Bo Towers battening down the hatches in preparation for winter.  The girls have started squirrelling away their crafting supplies ready for a fun packed couple of months!!!
I hope you've enjoyed the sale while it was on...thank you if you placed an order..x  It finishes tonight at midnight UK time....so that gives you a chance to get the last few items on your wish lists...x
SO....what's NEW this week!?!?
Yep...that's right, the Christmas graphics have started already!!!  More to follow...x
And with that, let's see what wonderful creations Team B have come up with this week...x
We are so sorry to announce that due to family and other commitments Tammy is having to step down from the Design Team...although we hope it's only temporarily.  Tammy has been with me for nearly 9 years and it's been fabulous having her crafting knowledge to tap into...but as she's now a granny and has 2 other daughters still at home card-making doesn't have the same pull for her that it once had....we wish her well and will leave the door at Teddy Bo Towers slightly ajar for when she's ready to return to us....thank you Tammy...xxx
