Oh no….not another Teddy Bo…

I’m afraid so…how could I not…he is just so adorable…reminds me of my son when he was little…not that he was brown and covered in fur…but has a laid back, carefree, sweet attitude!! As it is such a beautiful day, I think it is very fitting and just perfect to use.

I am entering this little Teddy Bo into the Teddy Bo Challenge 8 “Tag It” and Simon Says “Emboss It” Challenge

I have embossed around the edges of the card with gold embossing powder and used my cuttlebug folder to emboss with Swirls, which I distressed with Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy & Weathered Wood, I made the star buttons with my faithful Slice machine and 'Stickled' them. Teddy Bo has been coloured with Prisma pencils and blended with sansador. I have also added some chocolate card candy...uummm...

Inside of the card, I have made a couple of tags which a special message can be written on and used my cuttlebug folder again to emboss with Swirls, which I distressed with Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy & Weathered Wood...

I have added a sentiment 'Dreaming of Everything Wonderful for You'...

Handmade stars and butterfly charm...

Teddy Bo 'chilling out' in the sunshine...

And of course a handmade box to match...
