Teddy Bo Two-sday and Tombola!

Did you see what I did there, hehe! What I was trying to tell you with the silly title is that today you get not one, but two Teddy Bo Creations from me!

We are half way through the latest challenge...

Christmas but Red and Green must not be seen!

My first project is a card made using one of this weeks new images.

Image - TEDDYBEA_170 coloured in Photoshop
All papers - Frost N Flakes- Nitwits
Snowflake - Memory Box Die.
Ivory Ribbon and pretty button - MeiFlower
brads - stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges.

Forever Friends -  must include animal - Christmas is Coming
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Create Me Pink Challenges  #4  Use A Digi 
Crafty Emma -  #62 Snowflakes

I also decided to have a go at making a hanging ornament. I saw a few of these around blog land last Christmas and decided now was as good a time as any to have a try. It is made up of 20 circles of card, 5 of the ones through the middle contain the Teddy Bea image, the ones in between have a glittered die cut snowflake, with a sparkly gem in the centre and I have added a gem between each section. A big bow, beads and a beaded tassel finish it off.

Image - TEDDYBEA_165 Coloured in Photoshop
Papers - Various Nitwit Kits
Snowflake die - Marianne Creatables
Ribbon and Gems-MeiFlower
Tassel - Crafty Devils
Beads - stash

I am entering my bauble into the following challenges

When I scrolled down to the picture of Bea dressed as a penguin it made me laugh - that image is fab (and great colouring in as usual!) Wish my Memory Box Snowflake cut as well as yours do - even with the Cuttlehug I struggled yesterday!?! Love the ornaments, I made some of these last year, but mine were only tiny, trust you to go bigger and better!!!
Brilliant stuff as usual Colette!
