Teddy Bo Challenge # 11 - Shaped Cards

Firstly - I would like to introduce the lovely Bev Rochester and Tab from Tabby Crafts Designs 
as  permanent members of our Design Team. 
I'm surprised you haven't heard us all screaming with delight - saying that - it's us that probably caused the bad weather over the weekend, with all the noise we were making.
Its fantastic to have two well known and talented crafters with us. Their creations will most certainly inspire you as I am sure they will me.

We had so many fantastic entries that the design team had a very difficult time picking just three, but eventually the decision was made and our winners this week are:

Overall Winner 
No' 25 Marianne
Runner up's
No' 20 Vicky & No' 36 Sandiblu

Congratulations - and well done - a wonderful selection of cards.

This week's challenge is sponsored
by our friends at

The prize for the winner is 3 sets of digi sentiments.
 The winner will also receive their choice of three graphics from the Teddy Bo store and the runners up get to chose 1 graphic each.
This week's theme is :

Shaped Cards
No squares or rectangles allowed and don't forget you must use a Teddy Bo and Co image, so let's see what amazing creations you can come up with this time around.
Entries to be submitted by midnight (GMT) Sunday 14th June.
Good Luck.

Back of the letter " M "

I have gone for something a little different. 
I cut the letter " M " out twice with my cri-cut....used normal settings and shadow setting.
Attached to acetate to allow the letter to stand tall.

Bea as been printed on to Bristol Board and coloured with Poly Pencils, again I have blended with baby oil using paper stumps. Glitter was added to her pom-poms and heart shaped button on her arm.

Flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The link can be found on my side bar.

Papers used are from Panduro and called " Frosted Bluegreen ". My all time favourite paper stack - so lush! I am running terribly low on these, so must get stocked up again. 
A shame the pictures arent showing the true colour of them.

I have recently taken up knitting - hoping that it will relax me a little at night time.
I seem rather stressed of late - so much going on that I never have any ME time.
So here is a preview of what I have been getting up too. Not finished but I will be adding more pictures as the days go by.
Anyway - hoping to see more of you entering our challenge....and good luck.
Take care for now.
Loads of Love
