It's a manic Teddy Bo Tuesday!

Well....what can I say!?!?!?

It's been an emotional two weeks and I'm just talking about me!?!?! 

The response to our DT Call has been phenomenal!!  The talent we have witnessed was breath taking.....I'll tell you a wee secret...a few of my current DT's even started to panic!!! ;)
I really do feel truly blessed that people love the wee bears as much as I (and my Teddy Bo family) do.....only problem is, it makes the job of picking SO MUCH HARDER!!!
Anyway, let's get on with the other news this week and then we can get back to the DT business later.

SO....what's NEW in the store this week!??!  Well, we have some new characters, FeeFee & Fawny...perfect for Christmas, Valentines, Birthdays....just perfect!!!  Fawny is quite the cutie!!  We've also got a couple of old favourites that have been brought up to date and a couple of newbies too.

And of course...when there's graphics my girls love to play!!!  Check out these wonderful works of art from the Design Team!!

(this is a re-draw that went into the store during the week) 


WOW......weren't they just splendiferous!!!!??! 

Of course....with us being back in full throttle we want to start the challenges off again.....so we thought that we'd start with a lovely simple one that even I can do.....so the challenge for this week is...

(as long as it's Teddy Bo)

SO......starting from NOW until the clock strikes midnight on the EVENING of the 12th of October we'd love to see your cards.  The only rules are that it has to feature one of the characters from Teddy Bo & Co....and with  our D'Arcy's Diaries and Wonderland Stamps soon to join us on the Teddy Bo site then your options just got even bigger!!!!  Keep an eye out for that news next week.

"SO, what do we win", I hear you cry!?!?  (either that or someone's stuck down the back of my settee and I'm sitting on them!?!)

Well, how about TEN GRAPHICS from the store for the winner and one each for the 2 runners up!?!?!  Does that make it worth entering for?!?!??!?!

Find the linky below and GOOD LUCK!!!

Now, what about that Design Team Call!?!?!

Well, please know that it has pained me greatly (seriously, I've had a sore head for 5 days) to have to only pick 8 girls to join our team......that takes us up to 16 in total.....!!!!  But we had to come to a decision eventually and I have the greatest honour of announcing that we are offering places to the following girls.......I hope that you will accept.
Erin Sparkles Fairclough
Sally Astill
Deneen Treble
Melissa Goodman
Anne Cullen
Stacey Schofield
Penny Busch
& Lis Murphy
