Another Tuesday, another Teddy Bo card.

After a lovely break last week in Gloucester, with a visit to Bath and Blenheim palace, I am now running around trying to catch my tail, wasn't even sure I was going to have a Teddy Bo card done this week, but I managed it by the skin of my teeth. I love colouring and using the teddies, so thought I must make the effort.

When I first joined the Teddy Bo design team I seemed to mainly use Bea, being girly, dressing as a fairy and looking so pretty, she was my kind of digi, but looking back over the last few posts I seem to have become a Bo groupie LOL! I think for the last four tuesdays I have used Bo, and nothing is going to change this week as here he is again.

This week I decided to finally have a go at one of these new style easel cards that are everywhere you look, I loved easel cards anyway, but these double and triple ones that are around now just add a bit of something extra.
I have used one of the new images that are available in store now. Bo is coloured in photoshop, as usual LOL!, the word dad is paper pieced (digitally) and the card is decorated with digi papers and a circle frame from the Clipart Fairy's Boys will be boys kit. Everything is popped up with foam pads, (I love a bit of dimension in my cards). Ribbon and buttons are from stash and the poem was picked up on one of my many journeys around the WWW.

What do you think of his belt buckle it has his name engraved onto it?!

Check out the new images in store, there are some really gorgeous ones ( I think I say that every week LOL!), that you won't want to miss, and you still have until Sunday midnight (GMT) to enter our challenge which is all about Bo this time around.
