Teddybo Challenge Love Is in The Air !!!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hi How are you all ? We never got any snow here but it has been really cold ! Just as well we have Valentine's Day on the way to cheer us up and a new Challenge at Teddybo !! It's the perfect theme of love is in the air use one or more hearts you have 2 weeks to enter ends 19th February ! I have used loads lol ! There are so many cute pictures of Bo & Bea together it's hard to choose !! I went for Teddybobea_104.   It's called cuddle up close !.  There is a wee story here so grab a cuppa lol and no chocolate biscuits !! I have been munching lots since I have stopped smoking I seriously need to sort myself out lol or my tummy will be bigger than Bo's !!

I have made this card for my mum she has been on her own since I was a teenager and a family friend and her have got together and he has moved in and is now part of the furniture ! lol They are smitten it's just so great as my Mum is really happy !! This image reminds me of them as Bo
has a cheeky wee face just like him !  So I thought this would be perfect !!

I used these gorgeous papers and sentiments by pink petticoat !!

I have used cricut craftroom basics for the hearts ! I have made a swing for them to sit it on lol and I have added this cool Stampin Up Hearts Treat Cup ! I filled it with Jelly Beans ! I had to hide the tub until my day off !(Teenager would have scoffed them )  Yesterday I took out the colours I needed and then the Stamp Monster ( my Fella) took a huge handful and put them in his mouth all at once ! He is a such spoil sport you are supposed to guess the flavours one at a time  lol !!  
Here is what it looks like when top is pulled out hard to photograph !!

I shall leave the recipe underneath and hope you can join in too !! There are so many cool images this week !!

I wonder too what the Stamp Monster has got me for Valentine's,  he tells me it is a surprise and that worries me lol as you just never know what the cheeky monkey is up to !! he keeps saying I think you will really like it !

Lots of Crafty Hugs
