Baby Bo


Morning :)  We had so much snow yesterday!.. Incredible.  It was proper snow too - just right for making snowmen ;).  I took my dogs out for a play and threw snowballs (they cant find them or throw them back! lol )

Kevin and Oliver


Anyway, after all that fun, we had a cosy afternoon and I set about making todays card. 

I used this fabulous  Baby Bo digi-stamp from Teddy Bo.   It was totally fabulous to colour and really quick using only 3 shades of pro-markers.   I also followed their great sketch on the Teddy Bo blog.

I distressed and hand-stiched K&Co Addison papers,  used MS punch, pearl white card candy, and ribbon, charm and scrabble letters from stash.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Dream Valley - New Beginnings
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Baby Blue
Moving Along with the Times - Card for a Male
Do You Stack Up - Layers
Dutch Dare - Photo Inspiration
Bling it On - Anything Goes + charm

Thank you so much for looking, have a smashing Sunday and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

Hi sweetie this is a gorgeous card I love the shade of blue & the image...well I love Teddy Bo & this is just fantastic hun. A gorgeous beautiful card.
I read your post below sweetie & I so agree with you hun. There are so many people that have it soooo hard in the world & yet they carry on lifting their heads high & being thankful for everything in life without a single complain I admire those people. Its hard when we are hit by devastation I thank my lucky stars everyday for what I have....I know it can be taken away at anytime....I have had so much devastation but its nothing at all compared to what a lot of people go through including those poor poor people in Japan... I am grateful for EVERYTHING I am & have.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
