Hello, my blogland friends.
Tomorrow..... hubby  and I are off to a wedding,  hubby is Best Man  and well..... I am his best lady:0) lol. x  I made the happy couple a card.
It is a pretty plain card as I didn't have a lot of papers suitable to make it. I have been on the net, but iv'e not really found any papers that I like so if any of you can suggest any please can you let me know?
The card features Teddy Bo  and Bea so that makes up for it as these bears are so special to me.

Fairytale Friday - A dream come true

Welcome to my blog..... oh the excitment is too much to BEAR.
I would like to share my dream come true with each  and every one of you.
Last July I had major surgery which left me with persistent pelvic pain, I felt down and well......depressed I suppose.
I had been making cards for almost 10 years mainly from kits in magazines but after my surgery I seemed to lose interest. Then last November I was at my local supermarket browsing through some magazines when I came across Simply cards & papercraft the magazine was featuring Christmas it looked interesting so I purchased it.
The magazine sat on the table for at least two weeks before I actually opened it. Inside was a seven page article featuring adorable little bears designed by a lady called Gayle Cook, the bears had been coloured so beautifully  and made in to cards by a couple of ladies from the design team the company is called Teddy Bo & Co. I was inspired so, I went on the site to have a look  and WOW!!!  I purchased a couple of images to begin with, but I wondered if I would ever be able to sit  and colour them due to the pain I was suffering  and the very strong pain killers which left me feeling drowsy, but these bears were always in the back of my mind colouring the bears took my mind off the pain  and lifted my spirits. I began entering my creations on to the Teddy Bo & Co blog through facebook at first then I created my own blog  and started entering via that after a couple of Challenges I won runner-up three times in a row then came the big wins I was on a roll!!! I keep saying to my hubby I love these bears so much I want to go to Teddy Bo towers? then last week my dream came true Gayle asked if I would like to join the design team YIPPEE!!! I have had further surgery this year  and I am recovering well, but without Teddy Bo!?!?!? who knows?
Now I would like to share my first card as the new member of the Teddy Bo & Co design team you can also see it on todays Fairytale Friday over at the Teddy Bo & Co blog.
I hope you like it.
