Red, White and Blue for Teddy Bo

Edit:  Shared top 7 honors at  Tuesday Throwdown
Edit:  Shared runner up honors at Teddy Bo Challenge

Hello my stamping friends!  Did you all have a great Memorial Day weekend?  I know I did!  Just can't beat those three day weekends, right??  : )  Over the weekend, among many other things, I worked up another Teddy Bo image.  Such fun!!  This one will be for my son's birthday which is coming up quickly!!

This image is called Sausages.  Doesn't Teddy Bo look just like a home grill 'chef' getting a little overwhelmed with their brats??  {smile}  I just giggle every time I look at him.  My son is a pretty darn good grill master, so I thought this would be quite appropriate for him.  {smile again}

The Teddy Bo Challenge this time is red, white and blue.  I decided to go half between Memorial Day and Fourth of July.  There are several challenges I've seen using this color combo this week.  Lucky me!!  I added a little speckled affect on the birthday sentiment.  This was simply done by bouncing the image on the Stampin' Up real red stamp pad (old, old, old one).  And another piece of luck... I found a BG glazed brad that matches my bottom DP!  YAY!!

The Teddy Bo Challenge - red, white and blue... oops... and I now see 'and lots of bling'.  (Perhaps I don't qualify now). {sigh}

Fantastic card for your son. I'm sure he's gonna love it. Thanks so much for stopping by and your words of encouragement. I'm so happy to hear you made the choice to stop smoking. That's much harder than stopping because you can't breathe. I never wanted to quit until this time when I really had no choice. It's been pretty easy so far but I'm still battling infection and lack of energy so I hope when I get well, it will still be easy to not want one.... We don't live very far apart. I'm in St. Joe...if you ever go to any of the crops or workshops in KC let me know. My favorite is the CKC one in October. Take care and thanks so much for the info and words of encouragement. "Hugs"


What a lovely card.
And a beautiful coloring.
I love it!
Thanks for joining us at Teddy Bo and good luck.

It is fantastic and now you gave me an idea for my card for my BIL! Thanks for inspiration and thank you for joining us at Teddy Bo challenge this time. I really hope you will join us again!
Hugs, Jill
