Thank you to everyone who played along, I hope you enjoyed our first blog hop.

Now onto this week's Teddy Bo Cards.

I asked Gayle to draw me the image I have used this week, it is loosely based on the war poster featuring Kitchener, which says - Your Country Needs you - but I asked Gayle for the wording to read - Your Birthday Needs you - as my plan was to add some text at the bottom to make the card
suitable for a young boy.

Here's how it worked out.
I added a background of my own to turn the image into a poster.
image - TEDDYBO_174 coloured in Photoshop
Papers - Echo park - Little Boy
Green cord - MeiFlower
button - stash

Once finished I thought to myself, if I change the papers and wording I could use the same image and make a card suitable for a teenager.

This is how that one turned out.
Image as above
Papers - Shery K - Party Time papers
Yellow cord - MeiFlower
Buttons - stash.

Feeling quite pleased with myself and admiring my handiwork I thought to myself once again, if I change the papers and wording again I could make this suitable for an older teen/young adult.
This is the result.
Image - as previous
Papers - Men In Mind - Clipart Fairy
Glass of beer die - Cottage Cutz
buttons - stash

After all that thinking my brain hurt, and the only remedy for that, was a glass of wine and a bar of chocolate!
Felt much better afterwards LOL!

Oh my goodness - those are all amazing. I love the circle card. I've made a few and have used the sentiment off the circle like you to make it stable. The last card is amazing too. Saw your project on Make it Monday and had to come over and take a closer look.
