Teddy Bo Tuesday

Where are the days going, they just seem to be flying by, (in fact so do the years). September in our household is one of those months where there are more occasions than days in the month! LOL!
 Last week both my MIL and BIL had a birthday, this Thursday my Grandson will be celebrating his sixth birthday, (it seems like only yesterday when he was born,)  and the following day is my wedding anniversary. Sunday is my Nephew's birthday, two days later my SIL's wedding anniversary, and it goes on like this all month. As fast as I am making a card, it is being sent off to a recipient.

Today's Teddy Bo Tuesday card has been made using one of this week's new images, with Autumn almost upon us, our thoughts are turning to leaves on the ground, pumpkins, and halloween, so the new images are starting to reflect this.

For my card I used "Leaf Angel" this gorgeous image reminds me of a snow angel, but with leaves instead.
I have coloured her in Photoshop, and made a bit of a fancy tent card!!! The maple leaf paper is a freebie from My Memories, the spotty paper is Clipart Fairy Autumn Mello' and the cardstock is from stash.
I used a Nellie Snellen die for the corners and an X-cut die to cut out the middle, I cut it once then moved it around and cut again to give me the opening in the frame. The front scalloped edge is a Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon and flowers are from stash.
To be honest I am really not pleased with the way it turned out, it seemed like a good idea when I started it, but before it was finished I knew I wasn't happy with it, the trouble is I had been working on it all day and didn't have time to start another, so I had to use it.

Don't forget to head over to the challenge blog and check out all the fabulous inspiration from my teamies.

You still have until Sunday 18th midnight (GMT) to enter the Teddy Bo - Say it with Flowers challenge. The lucky winner gets to pick ten Teddy Bo images of their choice! We are also having another DT call as we have lost a few members recently, details will be going up on the Teddy Bo blog tomorrow, and have you had a look at Teddy Bo's Top Tips, over on the Teddy Bo and Co blog. There is a fab tutorial from Jill, showing you how to make a Post-it note holder easel card, and if you make one yourself and show it to us you will get a free Teddy Bo image as a thank you.
