Happy Christmas

Hello from a very busy me, I hope you are all well and ready for Christmas? I feel like I am all shopped out and spent up, its all work, shopping and spending money lol....
Here is a quick card I made for orders I had to complete in a hurry, so out came the LOTV die cuts what a God send these are, with some pretty SU! Christmas papers and a few greetings they make a very classy card. I really must learn to make my cards in plenty of time next year ......
I hope all my lovely blog readers have a very happy Christmas and a very happy 2013. I look forward to sharing my cards with you in the New Year, some new exciting things on the cards for Teddy Bo too.

Fairytale Friday

Today I am sharing one of my earlier Teddy Bo card, i do love this wee little fella all relaxed on a lazy summers day, oh how I long for those days again (sigh).... I expect you are all like me and running around like a headless chicken? (or should that be Turkey lol..) I don't have to much left to do but just feel so disorganized and I'm beginning to panic now!! I haven't a clue what to buy my other half, men are so difficult to buy for unless they mention something they need. Anyway back to my card for Fairytale Friday.....

Its Teddy Bo Tuesday

Teddy Bo Tuesday time once again, so that means its Challenge time.
This weeks challenge is 'Anything Goes' with the added option of using the sketch provided by Nicole.

I am very late with my card as have been away for a week to Presthaven Sands. I couldn't of picked a worse week to go away, the weather was awful but we enjoyed our family time with the grandchildren.
I have to say I missed my crafting and feel ready to get back to it again, time permitting as now we are approaching Christmas things begin to get quite hectic for me in work.
