Teddy Bo Challenge #11

Good morning

It's time for a new Teddy Bo Challenge but before I tell you the details I have some news to share .... Firstly I am pleased to say our talented guest designers Bev and Tab are joining us permanently and secondly Gayle wants to expand the design team so is holding a DT Call :-)  So if you would like to be considered for the design team all you need to do is enter the current challenge and add DT to your name ... simples!

Now moving onto the challenge ... this time we want to see your 'Shaped Cards' ... no squares or rectangles allowed!  We are sponsored by the lovely Lynne at Crafts 4 You and the prize for the winner is 3 sets of digital sentiments plus 3 Teddy Bo digi stamps with the runners up each getting a Teddy Bo digi stamp of their choice.


A few weeks ago I bought a selection of shaped card blanks from Which Craft UK and decided to use one of the Double Concertina Step Cards for today's card.  There are several different designs which I think are reasonably priced at £6.99 for 10 Pre-Cut and Scored Cards and Envelopes.  The P&P was also very reasonable and very quick delivery.  I know I could probably make one of these from scratch with a bit of measuring, scoring and cutting but I like an easy life lol!
Papers ~ Doodlebug Designs 'Berry Blue' & Wild Rose Studio 'Polka Dots'
Sentiment ~ Cuddly Buddly
Swirl ~ Magnolia die cut


Challenges

Little Claire's ~ Shaped Cards
Phindy's Place ~ Summer Living
Cooking It Up With Katie ~ Swirly, Sentimental, Sunshine
Creative Craft World ~ Use 3 or more flowers


This week's NEW images available at Teddy Bo

Stunning card Lisa - love the shape and I agree life's too short for measuring & cutting sometimes - so the easy life is best!
Have a fab day.
