Teddy Bo Challenge # 12 - Bling it on!!

Tuesday is here - yet again - which means its Teddy Bo day.
The start of yet another challenge - this time its BLING IT ON! 
So we want to see lots of sparkle, gems and glitz. But remember, your card MUST have Teddy Bo or Teddy Bea on to enter. 
We'd like to thank you all SO much for your interest in our Design Team.......it has been SUCH a hard job trying to pick our new members. It's been such a hard decision to make that we won't be announcing the challenge winners/DT members until 6pm ish tonight (UK time) as we have so many time zones to consider.....I hope that's not too long a wait!!!!
So.....on to my card for the challenge. I have made this card for a female friend who adores bears.
Now some of you would use Bo for a male card - but me thinks he looks simply gorgeous layered on to pink and blue.
I have added glitter and glimmer mist to his hat and jumper. 
Flower paper is from a Fizzy Moon Pack - Celebrations.
Spotty paper is from my stash - so not sure where it came from.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - though the pink ones with pearls are from Hobby Craft Store in the Wedding section.
Sentiment is from LOTV. Oh - must pop over there for the new releases!!! 

Don't forget to pop over at Teddy Bo for the latest releases.....and remember later tonight the new design team will be announced....you never know...YOU just might be one of them!!!
Right - time for me to go now as I have lots of running about to do today. My dear Nan wants me to take her to the doctors / food shopping / post office....then .... I am sure there will be other things she will find me to do and I have my Grand-daughter too at tea time. The joys!!
So take care all and I am sure I will catch you all again soon.

Birthday Card - Magnolia

Good morning everyone - how are you all on this bright sunny day? Ok, the sun's out my end and I seem to have got up on a high! Doesn't happen often, so I am trying to get a few things done, you know the catch up on chores etc.
I've done so well - that I managed to get a card done too.

I have used Tilda from the Fairytale Collection - Longing.
The cup and saucer is from a PCCrafter's set I have had for a few years. I just printed out and added glitter and gloss, the cut-out Tilda and attached to the cup. 
Both images have been coloured with Poly- Pencils

As always I have used Wild Orchid Craft flowers - yummy yummy.
I may add some glimmer mist later - this card is already spoken for...so will ask recipient before adding. Papers used are again are - Papermania - Henbury Lane - Perfect Summer Day's.
So glad I bought two packs of these as they are lush!

I haven't really entered many challenges of late, so this card will be entered in to a few.
Starting off with - 
The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge - Their very first challenge is A Birthday Project.
Happy Birthday Pauline.
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes.
Magnolia Down Under -  Peach, Purple & Cream.
Wild Orchid Crafts Cahllenge - Sketch by Bev.
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes - with option of lace.

Well, off to peg some washing out whilst the sun still has his hat on.
Catch you all again soon.

Oh-La-La & Ballerina Bea

Sharing two cards with you today.
First up is this wonderful classy, digital stamp which can be found at Fairydoodlers store.
She comes in coloured for those that like a quick card and can't be bothered with getting their colour mediums out, plus in line art.
I have used the " line art " and coloured with Pro-markers and Poly Pencils.
I blended with paper stumps dipped into baby oil.
I so adore pink and black together....looks gorgeous, don't you think?
Flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment is computer generated on to card stock.
Added some glitter to her buttons.

Secondly we have Ballerina Bea - these are simply fantastic - Gayle as been so busy getting these drawn up. A must have for those little girls in your family.....as my Grand-Daughter said last night
" Princess Bear " anything in pink, is a Princess right now. Bless.

I have used Which Crafts for the card that's been used. They are called " Circle Scallop Cards ", you
get 32 die cut circles - 16 plain and 16 scalloped. A real bargain too. Saved me such a long time as I didn't have to cut them all out free hand.

Bea as been coloured with my Poly Pencils, glittered added to her dress for that sparkle finish. 
We all need sparkle, don't we?
Papers for both these cards are from Papermania - Henbury Lane - Perfect Summer Days.
Brad on the bow is My Minds Eye....totally lush!

Flowers and ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts - I just can't go without them. A must have on all my cards. Do check them out if you have never been there - amazing and lush!
Sentiment is from my stash....not sure where they came from am afraid.

Please do go and check out the store for Ballerina Bea & the Oh-La-La digi stamps on Tuesday next week. The design team have also made some wonderful cards - very inspirational.
Catch you all soon - enjoy what we have left of the weekend.
