Challenge 3 # IN THE PINK

It's another Teddy Bo Tuesday ~ Gosh where haveq the last two weeks gone?
The theme for this week's challenge is ~


so your main colour MUST be pink of course.

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 18th Feb.

Before we get on to the winner and top 3 for our last challenge, we would like to thank each and everyone of you for entering. Your cards have been amazing - Gayle is gob-smacked at the talent you ladies have. Your colouring, from distress inks...water-colours...pro-markers and copics is out of this world. Your cards have put mine to shame.....I think I will definitely have to try distressed inks. The finish is so incredible.

So then.......the winner of the SEEING DOUBLE challenge is.........

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Please contact us for your McMahon Five Designs $15 Gift Certificate.

The top 3 cards are as followers ~ Number 8 ~ KATHY Number 12 ~ RICA Number 15 ~ ELLEN

Also we have a Guest Design Team Call, so anyone interested please, please do get in touch.

Our Sponsor this week is ~ Bearly Mine Designs. The lovely Donna is offering the winner 2 digi sets of their choice. Her papers are fantastic and print beautifully. I use them a lot on my cards. Do go over and check them out, if you have never seen them before.

Now on to the Design Team Cards

Debbie's card is first up....how lovely is this fold? The bears have been coloured with pro-markers ~ colours used are satin & putty.
Bea's dress is Blossom and grumpy Bo is pretty in Rose Pink.
Papermania Scrumptious paper, letters have been cut with Round-a-bout Sizzix alphabet, Smirk ribbon & flowers cut with Joy Craft die.

Next we have Lisa's card. How delicious are these Marianne Design Paper's? " Bea Swing "
again has been coloured with pro-markers ~ tan, caramel, pale pink & baby pink.The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs

Claire's card is so adorable with Bea dangling in the centre. Bea is held on by an earring hook....what a great idea. She has used lots of bright pinks and added some green. Again the bears have been coloured with pro-markers.

Next up is Colette's cute gate-fold card. I would never have thought about placing Bo behind the swing, making it look like he is pushing Bea. I would have used him for a Christmas card. Isn't it brilliant how every crafter thinks differently, no two are ever the same...amazing. Colette has used digi papers, edged with a pink ink pad. Bea's swing is actually attached by a brad, so she can actually swing from side to side. Do check out her blog for more photo's.

Finally there is my card. I have used Teddy Bo " I LOVE YOU BUNCHES ". I love the pencil look of this digi stamp. Again, he's been coloured with pro-markers and the papers I have used are Papermania

( Henbury Lane ). I picked the first few challenges and you know what? I had NO pink backing papers. So off I had to go to the Hobby Craft and buy some. Must say these papers are rather lush!

So then crafters, let's see what you're all going to come up with for this challenge.


Loads of Love
