Teddy Bo Goes Golfing - and Some Exciting News!

A friend asked me to make a card for her dad's 80th birthday. I couldn't resist using my favourite bear of all - Teddy Bo. Teddy Bo Challenge has a challenge 'My Favourite Colours'. Now I like a lot of different colour combos but I think anyone who looks back at my cards will know that I use a LOT of Green and Browns!!! so I think this really is my favourite colour combination!

The paper is from a Die Cuts With a View Stack called Latte. I think some of these papers are quite retro and I love them! 

Sentiment was made on computer. Ribbon from stash. Image background dusted with Memento Bamboo Leaves Ink.

Teddy Bo: Blush and Tan Promarkers
Golfing Bag: Tan and Cinnamon Promarkers
Teddy Bo Clothes: G82 and G85 Copic
Golf Clubs & Socks: Cool Grey 3, 4 and 5 Promarkers
Shading with Prismacolor Pencils

Now for my exciting news!!! Hazel from Moving Along With The Times contacted me and asked me to join their Design Team!! Woo Hoo!! (Trumpet Fanfare!) I hope I can do the team justice! it's my very first Design Team proper, so a bit nervous. But it is very Cool !!!!

Thursday was such a lovely day for me! I felt like all my Christmases had come at once! First I got a lovely surprise card from Teresa to say Thank You for the blog candy. It's a beautiful card! It sparkles and is gorgeous - I love it!!! So Thank You Teresa!!!

Then my order from Handy Hippo arrived. I had a wee bit of spending money this month and so ordered some wooden snowflakes and trees and they are gorgeous. You can't always tell when you look at them online, but they look fab. Finally Hazel asked me to be on the Design Team! So lovely day all told!

Back to my card .....

I would like to enter this into the following Challenge:-

Teddy Bo Challenge Challenge 19 - 'My Favourite Colours' (ends 16th October 2011)

Hope you are all well!
And hope you are enjoying Strictly and It Takes Two as much as I am, and the X Factor!
Love n Hugs!
