DIY Bo

Happy Day to all.  I hope this finds you well.  The lovely weather continues here and it is so good to see the sun.

I was fortunate to win the Teddy Bo & Co Challenge a couple of weeks ago with my Teddy Bea card and the prize was 10 digi images of my choice from Gayle. How happy and excited was I.  Many thanks to all at Teddy Bo.

 I am a great fan of Teddy Bo and Bea and am really enjoying using the images and you will be seeing my efforts over the next few weeks.

On to today's card which features DIY Bo.   I am not good at making male themed cards and I usually really struggle but not with this card.  The image, colour and decoration all came together quite easily and I really enjoyed making this card.



List of Materials used for making this card :o)

12 x 12 card for backing, 12 x 12 card for backing, Digital papers from Baer Design Studio

Image is printed on Neenah Solar Card and is coloured using Promarker pens and edges are distressed with ink.

Twine, Buttons, mini mosaic tiles to create small wall, watch face charm, salvage sticker from Tim Holtz.

Card from my stash for greeting panels.  Greeting printed by me on quality card and all edges distressed on greeting panels


A closer view of the image showing Mr Cute - Teddy Bo.  I thought this image would be really suitable for a Father's Day card.  It reminds me of someone very close to my heart.

Beautiful Friendship Vintage Style Card


Hello again and Happy Monday to everyone.  Blogger have been updating my blog - I know several of you have been having the same problem and I thought I had lost everything today.  There was a moment of mad panic and then I used my usual highly skilled computer technical knowledge - I started pushing all the keys I thought would help.  Yippee, I did it, I don't know what I did, but we seem to be up and running, but its very slow.  If you find any problems on this blog please let me know and I will press some more keys  - relevant or not.

I have used the wonderful image Beautiful Friendship and this can be found  at
Beautiful Friendship Digital Stamp from Hello, that's Fabulous

Materials used for this card:

Wonderful image as listed above.  Coloured using ProMarker, FlexMarker Pens and Prismacolour Pencils.  Lots of lovely Vintage Distress Inks which I think has made this card very retro - almost French Shaby Chic.

Core'dinations Card and beautiful Kaisercraft papers and embellishments

Butterfly 3D embellished border from my stash and Velum butterfly printed from a Joanna Sheen CD

Ribbon, flowers and crystal stem from my stash.



I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges :O)
