A shabby chic Teddy Bo

Edit:  Won top honor at Do it with Digis #11

Hello folks!  I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend.  Mine was quiet and peaceful.  But today is Tuesday and it's back to work.  It has been hard to get back into it.  I guess I need a few more days off!!  haha!

I found this Teddy Bo image in my 'printed  off' stash and decided to do something with it.  This is one of the first Teddy Bo images I'd purchased.  He was great fun to color up.  I colored the hearts up in more of a pink, so used a couple pink embellies to.  I'm afraid Teddo Bo's been pinked!!  : )

This card would have worked perfectly for the last Teddy Bo Challenge which was to use Teddy Bo only.  But... I didn't get him done in time.  And I made the card before the new challenge which came out yesterday which is make a shaped card, so he won't work for that either.  Oh well... I'll keep trying!

I'm going to keep this short today.  OK... OK... keep the cheering down!  haha!!  I'll see if I can get a shaped card done for the current Teddy Bo Challenge!
