Teddy Bo Tuesday and challenge #13 Anything but a card!

Gooooooooooooooood Morning to you all and a Happy Teddy Bo Tuesday...is it Summer where you are yet?!?!?  Unfortunately someone has stolen the sun from Scotland...

It's the summer holidays here in Scotland (we're slightly earlier than the rest of the country!!)...it's just the first day and thankfully my kids haven't said that they're bored yet..but I know it's just round the corner!! ;0)

Anyway, in anticipation for the summer I thought I'd draw some stamps to put us in the mood for the beach...and there are even some coloured ones for the ladies and gents who like them ready for printing out in a hurry!!


Now onto the winners of our last challenge.  That challenge was hosted by Team A who are now 'on holiday' for a fortnight..but before they took their break from Teddy Bo & Co cardmaking duties they voted for their favourite cards together with our brand new Team B........their votes came out as follows:

Check out the fabulous design team creations!


"I've made myself a little file folder in which to keep my Teddy Bea and Bo images together so I don't have to keep searching for them, not that I'm disorganized you understand - except when I'm crafting and I can never find a thing, can't even see the floor half the time."

This is the inside of the file 


"I have made a flower decoration and have used Butterfly Bea.
I have used a scalpel on the wings as the wings are "transparent"
Used some glitter on them, but it is unfortunately not present in the pictures.
This stamp is double and glued on a flower stick, decorated with grass and small flowers."

made for the challenge a book for recipes. It consists of 25 pages which can be filled with favorite recipes.

Here´s my first Candlebag, in Germany they are called Lichtertüten.

and in the dark



"I took a plain white T shirt; a bit boring and a really cheap one you could see my girls underwear through it,
I printed the pre coloured version of Teddy Bea and her poddle on to transfer paper and ironed it on to my t shirt...eh voila!!  No more blushes as Teddy Bea covers the underwear!!!"
I have been rummaging through my crafty cupboard and came across this memo block that has space to decorate.
I must of had this over 10 years and still not done anything with it,
I think its a left over from my cross stitching days
( I have to confess I had  forgotten I bought it really).

I have made it girlie because I'm going to put it on my crafty desk, 
so i have used some of my favourite Teddy Bo images (up to now).

The Papers are from Wild Rose Studio Lilac Mist paper pad.
Coloured with Polychromos pencils and sansodor.
I made the paper lace out of a Marianne creatable die.
Lilac card stock.
I thought about sticking flowers to the outside but i don't know if i liked it or not,
so left it for now.

A castle for sweets
A made this castle for my son.
I used Pumpkin Bo, Bo-Boo and Pumpkin Bea
and 4 toilet rolls for the towers : )

and here the castle with drinking straws and lollipops.


We love seeing yours too!...so join in the fun!

and....just like always the link to submit your entries will be on the top right hand side of the blog......x
