I'm celebrating with Teddy Bo!!

Just a quick celebratory post and card.
I'm so excited - Teddy Bo has adopted me as one of his design team - how cool is that??
I've loved Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea since I first met them back in February (I think it was) and I've been entering his challenges ever since although I have to admit to missing one or two.


Bea is coloured in Copics and I've stamped the edges with a Stempelglede grunge stamp and heat embossed using clear powder, I then  inked the edges with Victorian velvet distress ink. The papers are Tim Holtz vintage shabby, I've cut a border and the leaves using Crealies dies and a dragonfly using a Magnolia one. The flowers are from Wild Orchid, the ribbon from my stash and I've added a charm, pearls and a flower to the bow.

Another cause to celebrate is finding out why I've been having so many computer and blogging problems. Thank you all so much for the advice and suggestions you've been leaving me, I've tried them all and more!!! Sadly it doesn't help me stop the problems as apparently it is a local problem, I'm not sure now it works but apparently  reception is poor and when everyone stars using the internet in the evenings the system can't cope.
I usually do my DT commenting in the mornings but I think I'm going to have to re-arrange my day and change my routine so I hope you'll bear with me in the meantime!!

I've been having trouble with my blogging lately too. Looks like it's fixed now but for a few days all my wonderful followers were missing & I was so worried they were gone forever. Soooo happy to finally have everything working again. Hope your problems are over as this is so frustarating.
Your card is just wonderful .... Love those sweet little images colored so beautifully. That butterfly is one I think I MUST get since seeing how great it looks on here.
hugs, Janie

Congratulations. So the bears nabbed you after all! I can hear your frustration over the computer difficulties & synpathize wholeheartedly. Love the charm creation & your dragonfly is so unsusual - shall have to investigate those Magnolia dies. I like how your floral embellishment top right echoes the one on Teddy Bea's hat.
