I've not really made much to post recently other than my Teddy Bo cards as the decorators have taken over Padster towers and what a nightmare it is. I had a play with a popcorn stamp a few days ago having just been on the Lili of the Valley colouring course to wee if it made any difference - not sure about the dark colour round his face but am reasonably pleased with him and practice makes perfect

Are You Seeing Things????

You are on the right blog even though there's one of those noseless ones in front of you. When Tammy sent  me a fabulous Tilda birthday card I realised that I was actually frightened of trying to colour them lol! This is Tilda with peony that I recently rehomed from the lovely Flourgirl. I've even coloured her in yellow!!!!!
I really can't be well!

I've made a card and a co-ordinating notebook for someone at work who has a big birthday coming next week.

I've put next years calendar inside with the notebook

Friday's Bear is Loving and Giving

This is another favourite Bo of mine TEDDYBO_049 but this is the clear stamp version which includes the sentiment plus another one and a little flower :c)
I've used Back to Basics II for the backing paper and some ribbon I found sticking out of my ribbon box!

I've coloured him in different colours for a change these are :
Apricot, Saffron and Vanilla. His jumper and hat are Burnt Sienna, Cocoa and Caramel.

Clean and Simple Teddy Bo Tuesday Mark 2

Having messed up with my post on Friday I've scheduled this one lol! It's still clean and simple over at Teddy Bo this week and I don't think I could get much cleaner or simpler than this. It's my all time favourite TEDDYBO_051 - Lazy days with some gems and an Imagine That Christmas sentiment.
Even if I do say so myself I think my (well he who thinks he must be obeyed) investment in the Lili of The Valley colouring course was money well spent - just need a bit more practice - well any excuse to colour more bears lol! I might just sneak this into hubby's bag next week as I made it for him.

Late again!

It's been a bit of a traumatic week at Padster Towers. Mainly involving men hammers and lots of paint!!!
Much as I accept it needs doing I feel uncomfortable when there are strangers in the house and have been permanently on edge.

This was my Clean and Simple card for Friday over at the Teddy Bo challenge. I had all intentions of posting it but when hubby drove back from Scotland last night then told me he was off again this morning and wasn't sure if he would get back next weekend, we went out for tea and bears went right out of my head.

Teddy Bo Tuesday

As I'm starring in my very own version of 60 month makeover and my house is a complete mess at the moment I used a pre-coloured Bo graphic for my card today. Our new challenge is clean and simple - not sure this fits as clean but it was definitely simple.
If you click the picture you can go straight to the shop to invest in some new friends.

Teddy Bo Tuesday Again!

I've made an advent calendar this week for Teddy Bo Tuesday - we still have our favourite colour challenge.
 running. I cheated a bit with the numbers and printed off some childrens flash cards although looking at it now they might be a bit plain.
I've used one of last weeks images TEDDYBO_138 and I think it's Bo Bunny paper but I used the bit with the details on it as usual!

I had to get myself an extra tax disc holder for my staff parking permit and decided to decorate it in the hope that hubby would refuse to drive my car.

Failed dismally although he refuses to be seen carrying the keys as they have Eeyore and patchwork heart and my name dangling off them - he hands them to me before he gets out.

The stamps is Jellybean by whimsy stamps, paper is First Edition Up Up and Away and I used my birthday picot circles dies :c)
