As you know Team B are hosting the Anything But a Card challenge this time around, but unfortunately Team A have come over all jealous, there has been a bit of foot stamping and teeth gnashing going on at Teddy Bo towers, (it's like sharing a tower with a gang of two year olds, honestly!!! the bears are better behaved - when they are not holding people hostage LOL!) Anyway to save any more crockery getting smashed and hair being pulled, we have decided to let Team A show off their Anything But a Card creations.

Please don't encourage them by leaving lovely comments, and praising their talents LOL!, I am hoping that if we just ignore them they will get over their tantrums and things will return to normal (Ha! chance would be a fine thing!).

***Note to self*** must find the key to the dungeons, it could come in handy if we have any more of this behaviour!


Let's have a quick look at what they have come up with

I have made a couple of Christmas decorations

The silver snowflake paper from the Clipart fairy is printed onto pearl paper so that it looks all shimmery. I cut the paper into strips, stuck them together, punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and then concertina'ed (!?!?!?!) the strips to make my decoration. I used some Go Kreate dies to make the toppers, coloured TeddyBea_109 in photoshop, and paper pieced her dress with a lilac snowflake paper from the same set. I used "hairy" glitter (so named by my grandson because it's little strands rather than dust)to make her tinsel headress, and some Marianne Creatables and Sizzix dies for the Poinsettia and swirls.
The large decoration measures approximately 7 inches across and the smaller one about four.

Oh and by the way I didn't pull anyone in Team B's hair on purpose, my hand just got caught in it as I walked past!!!


Stamping Up Sizzix milk-carton die
First Editon Up,up and away papers
Prisma pencils for colouring
Spellbinder's create a flower die set
Marianne design branch die
Teddybo tags graphics
Quikutz tag die

I did make a card to accompany it - just couldn't resist....

and no matter what any one else says I wasn't stamping my feet in temper, my legs had gone dead and I was trying to get the circulation back !!!


I saw the Cd clock idea on my friend Jennys blog  Abby said it would be good with the hands coming out of the bears tummy. Bo looks a bit concerned that he has something sprouting from his tummy button but maybe that will teach him not to kidnap Gayle again or he'll get pinned down.
Unlike the other girls I didn't have a temper tantrum. 

"No, she just sat in the corner and sulked!"



I have used Tshirt paper for Teddy Bea and transferred it onto a bag then I made a bag charm with shrink plastic. I love it lol!!!

I didn't smash the plate against the wall intentionally, I was putting it down on the table ever so carefully when I trod on the cat's tail, the cat squealed and ran off,  I got a fright, my arm flew up in the air and the plate went flying across the room and hit the wall!!!
Did anyone else hear the cat squeal.... or was it just me?!?!?!


I have made an altered picture frame, I have used Teddy Bea - Baby your a Star {my fave image}, and a wooden picture frame. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the metal butterfly and metal corner.  The little metal flowers are from The Hobby House.  I have coloured Bea with Prisma Pencils, blended with sansodor! The frame has been painted with Acrylic Paint as a base coat, and then Picket Fence Crackle Paint on top.

I did not thump my fist on the table in temper, I tripped over a squealing cat hehe! (thanks Claire, great excuse) as it went flying past me and my hand just happened to land very heavily on the table. Honest!
