Teddy Bo Tuesday, Tombola and a new baby!

Well he's finally arrived, Sunday evening at 4 minutes past seven, five days late, but when he decided it was time he didn't hang around, just three hours from the first contraction to the birth, weighed in at 7lb 15ozs.
Let me introduce you to my new grandson Charlie.

The first picture was taken in the hospital, lighting was pretty grotty and everything came out quite red. Second one was taken when he got home.


We are half way through our pastel challenge over on the Teddy Bo blog, and I have just about managed to fit in a card between baby being born sunday evening and running around today to make sure everything was ready for him coming home. Although  I haven't had time to do the inside yet.

I have used TEDDYBEA_165
Coloured in Photoshop
Gems - MeiFlower

I drew the swirl pattern on the dress and decorated the bauble in Photoshop and tried to make her boots look silver, as they reminded me of a pair of boots my daughter Meg once had. She gets her shoes specially made through the hospital, as she can't wear normal shoes due to the shape and size of her feet, (she's now 21 and Will (6) has bigger feet than her). We used to let her pick her own colour and design, but always tried to guide her towards black, white or some other sensible colour, but one year out of the blue she asked for silver and the bloke at the hospital managed to get her some made in silver leather,it looked like her feet were wrapped in tin foil.I hated them as she only ever had one pair at a time and she had to wear them for school and everything, but she loved them and that was all that really mattered.

Hi Colette,
Congratulations on the birth of your gorgeous grandson, and doesn't he just suit his name so well?! Little cutie!

I loved your story about Meg's shoes and your Teddy Bea's shoes look just like them. Such clever colouring and an absolutely gorgeous card!

I've entered the Teddy Bo challenge for the first time today with my first ever Teddy Bo card! I don't know what the Tombola is about bit if I'm eligible to enter can I have number 14?

Enjoy your cuddles with your new little bundle!
