Teddy Bo's First Challenge

Firstly we would like to thank each and every one of you for popping over to see Teddy Bo & Bea's adventures on our challenge blog. There are going to be some new and wonderful things to come from the bears. So do keep popping over, the more the merrier.

We have some yummy yummy launch candy from our first sponsor Wild Orchid Crafts.
Wild orchid Crafts have a wonderful selection of flowers for all your crafting needs. I for one just adore them and feel they are such a must have for your finished craft items.
Adding some glitter or glimmer mist to them makes them stand out beautifully. So do go over and check them out.

The launch candy will be our first prize for our very first challenge. Top 3 will each get to choose any digi stamp from Teddy Bo's Store, which also is being launched today too.
How exciting is this?
Teddy Bo & Bea have been up to SO much, so please pop over to the store for some truly
wonderful graphics. Our challenges will take place fortnightly on a Tuesday
"Teddy Bo Tuesday",
so you have plenty of time to take part.

This challenge is ANYTHING GOES!
The only requirements from you are the following ~

You MUST use a Teddy Bo or Bea image on your card. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Bo or Bea, you will then qualify to be in the draw for the fab prizes. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes on Friday 21st January.


First card up from the Design Team is from myself Tammy.
I have used paper stack, which is called Frosted Bluegreen, they are fabulous double sided papers. Flowers are Prima and Wildorchid Crafts....added some glitter to them. Teddy Bea has some glitter on her button and pom-poms. Sentiment is from LOTV stamps

This stunning Easter card has been made by the lovely Claire.What a great idea saving old necklace beads and attaching to her card.

Beautifully Coloured.

Another great card from Claire only this time she has used the new Colour Your Own Decoupage Sheets, which are available in the shop.

Colette's card has the real WOW factor. How cute are those banners. A lot of work as gone in to this card. Teddy Bea looks fantastic. Again lots of layers and mounted with sticky pads.
Another fantastic idea from Colette. This gift box is a real keepsake. Just look at those gems around the oval, really does finish off the box.
The lovely Heidi has used My Mind's Eye 'Quite Contrary' papers,
Hero Arts Sentiment, Prima flowers and some gorgeous pink stones.
And second to last we have Debbie
A fantastic card just right for the man in your life

Finally we have Lisa's card. The yellow & purple look so lush together.
We hope that all the Design Team cards have given
you lots of inspiration to join us in our FIRST challenge.

Please add a direct link to your card by clicking on the blue frog.

Happy Crafting to You All
Gayle & Tammy

  15. Gayle, the mat is an SVG file cut on the Cricut and the colour I used for the fur and boots are the Satin & Ivory you used in your tutorial.
