Teddy Bo and FairyDoodlers

Hi and a beautiful Sunday to everyone

Well all the birthday fun is over for another couple of months, as we had our last two parties yesterday. Laser Kraze in the morning with 17 little cuties as Nicholas celebrated his 7th birthday with all his school friends. It was really a fun party and grandma even was able to play a game of laser tag with them (as they had to have an adult with my one grandson) so, I joined in the fun and I don't know who had more of a blast, me or all the little tikes that took fun in making sure they surrounded me and kept shooting their laser at me so I couldn't shoot my gun. LOL!! Needless to say out of the 17 that were playing I came in dead last with my laser points.

Then last night we had a surprise birthday party for hubby with family and friends here at the house as we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary which was very low keyed but lots of fun sharing good memories with our love ones.
So after 3 months of 6 birthday parties and holidays I am looking forward to a couple of months of  a break.

Today I wanted to share a couple of cards from a fairly new company that I came a upon and fell in love with.  Fairydoodler's Den  runs a Friday challenge offering a free image each week for their challenge. I didn't quite make it to enter my card into their weekly challenge, but I did want to share my card using this sweet image. Having six grandson's, I know I will be using this image often with different cards.  

I made this one for a birthday card for my grandson who will be 18 in March.
My papers are from a Glitz Pack "Hey Dude" and matted on PTI Spring Rain and Chocolate, Sentiment is a SU stamp, Button is from PTI, Copics B45, E00,02,41, G24

Creative Inspirations challenge this week is celebrate and since this is a birthday card to celebrate a 18th birthday. One Stop Craft challenge wants to see a card for a male, Prairie Fairy is celebrating birthdays with a Happy Birthday challenge, Raise the Bar is looking for children images, which this is more for the teen years but still a child. Stampin for the Weekend's challenge is some new and blue - new image and blue within my card .

For my second card Fairydoodler opened a new store and a line of stamps with their very own blog Teddy bo and Company. If you are a teddy bear lover then you have to visit FairyD's new line of Teddy bo and Teddy bea store.
Teddy bo has a new challenge blog with their first challenge running
and I just couldn't resist these adorable little teddies.

I hunted down my Prisma pencils and Gamsol and sat and colored up this adorable little sweetie.
Oh I am so hooked, they have a new release coming on the 18th but you can find some very sweet Teddy bo and Teddy bea in the store, you really must go visit.

I paired him up with some sweet Basic Grey Wisteria papers, PTI Aqua Mist and Chocolate Brown paper, using the current sketch at Friday Sketchers as my layout.
This also will fit into the Basic Grey challenge - BG papers and spots and dots.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoy and will go visit FairyD's two blogs to say hi and welcome her and her teams to  blog land .

Have a sweet Sunday, me I am going to kick back and relax in my craft room.
