Thinking of good friends past and present

Hi again

Sad and reflective day today - it's 21 years ago today that my best friend's son was killed by a speeding driver - he was only 15. I can't believe were the time has gone! I never forget this day and every year without fail I always make my friends a card just to let them know that we are always thinking about them. This year I found this cute image from Saturated Canary with a nice heart bubble.....

I tried pink again - that's two cards in a week!

I had a message from my friend to say that she loved it, I hope you do too!

See you again for another post soon (hopefully!)

Hi all

Me again! Busy day today with my posts......

Today also sees our friend Scott's birthday and so of course I had to make a card and how could I resist Teddy Bo!

apologises that this photo is a bit fuzzy - too late to take another one ..Scott now has it lol!!

This is a new Teddy Bo stamp that you can buy from the store - you can also have a look at the Teddy Bo Challenge Blog and come and join our little family!!

Scott's Mother-in-Law also asked me to make a gift card for him as she has treated him to a theatre break and this is the card I made for her....

I found the picture on the interweb and printed it onto Kraft Neenah card. Looks quite good I thought!

Enjoy your birthday Scott!

Baby Good Luck Wishes

Hi Everyone

How are you all - not been here for a little while, sorry!!

So.... here is a little creation I made a few weeks ago but only been able to blog it today as we have now given this to our Slimming World consultant, Ellen, who is taking a few weeks off to have her baby boy. This is a brand new digitsamp that is available to buy from Teddy Bo - It's of course Teddy Bea.......

I put two extra blank cards inside it so that there was enough room for us all to sign it.

Hope you like it - and I'm sure Ellen does too!

Don't forget you can now buy this stamp over at Teddy Bo Stamps and don't forget to check our Teddy Bo Challenge blog for our new challenges.
