Teddy Bo Tuesday


Oh my...it's that time again.....Teddy Bo Tuesday flies round so quickly!!!

I hope you're all crafting away......I'm sure many of you have actually finished your Christmas cards and are planning Valentine's Day!!  I on the other hand will probably remember two days before the big day and panic!!  Life is VERY busy at the moment but very enjoyable too.  I hope that you're doing something that's fun for you.

SO.....what's NEW in the store this week!?!?



Definitely a mixed bag but I hope you see something that you like.


And of course, as always...with a NEW release comes a new Design Team Showcase.  The cards the girls have produced this week are absolutely darling......I'm sure you will agree.

Well, here in The Towers it's still quite tropical.....I'd love to say that we're all swanning about in our bikinis but Clairebears has started knitting again and Colette is currently modelling a rather...eh...fetching two piece.....she says it's extremely itchy and has ordered a LARGE supply of cream to soothe it.....I get the feeling Claire will be looking for her knitting needles soon!!!! ;)
