Teddy Bo Tuesday challenge #9

Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday! hope you are all well, and everyone here in the UK is well rested after yet another long weekend. Where on earth did April go!

This week the Teddy Bo challenge is....

Easel Cards

All you need to do this time is make an easel card using your favourite Teddy Bo or Bea image. This week we are being sponsored by Sentiments 4 you, the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate for Sentiments 4 You digi products available at http://sentiments4you.blogspot.com/  and http://www.crafts-4-you.co.uk/

You must check out the Teddy Bo store, Gayle has excelled herself as usual, and there are some absolutely beautiful new images, including a new friend for Bo and Bea, with a little knitted hat, made by Bea.

Here's a quick peek at this weeks new images

For my card this week I used TeddyBo_066, coloured him in photoshop and paper pieced his hammock. All the papers used on my card and the sentiment circle are digis from The Clipart Fairy, the hammock is from this set here, the other papers and circle are from the Boys will be Boys set. The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC, which I dressed up using papers from the same set as the card.
The hammock hangs away from the card and is attached with a brad so that it actually swings from side to side. The whole thing folds flat for posting.

Don't forget to head over to the store and have a look at this weeks fabulous new images.

Fabulous and Fun - this card made me smile! And I know just how Teddy Bo feels, as I feel exactly the same right now. And on that note, I am off for a nap (though I don't look quite as cute!) Well done Colette :-)
