When you wish upon a star – Teddy Bo

Another late posting, and another doctors appointment – I am so fed up of doctors and hospital visits as I’m normally as healthy as an ox so this is driving me nuts.  At last they have got all the results back and whilst they are not good and have left me a bit shaken up this morning at least now I know where I am going from here .  Enough feeling sorry for yourself Bev, get on with today’s posting. 

I did another Teddy Bo card for today, using browns and blues and a bit of inking and distressing.


The glitter on the wings and star is not showing up too good, the light was not very good this morning


Loads of gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and seam binding and a hand made button for the bow.  The “leaves” in the flower spray are actually a chopped up snowflake (Magnolia Doo Hickey) as I wanted something quite feathery with the leaves being die cut in brown card.


Card Recipe
Stamps:  Teddy Bo digi stamp When you wish upon a star and Hero Arts ticket sentiment
Papers: Prima Jack and Jill
Embellies:  Wild Orchid Crafts seam binding, 40mm tea rose, 20mm roses, 10mm roses, poppies

  70. Gorgeous as always! Love the designa, vintage look and that sweet image! I hope you are okay and that it isn't anything serious.

  71. You've been down a tough road the last weeks and I was hoping to read that the news was good. That is not as good as you expected is sad to hear. I want you to know that you are not alone, and often we think we are. I know I do. But having some results even if they are not what is expected gives you a place to start and it's better to know how to deal than not. At least knowing the results you have a place to start so you have heal and get your health back to where it should be. Wishing you the best in your journey. I love your card...it's adorable and your coloring it super.


Thanks for visiting!

Bev x
