Have looked at the Teddy Bo stamps more than once but I have resisted the temptation to purchase especially as I have draws full of stamps as yet un-inked.

Having got the crafting bug back asked myself what images did I feel inspired to use and guess the Teddy Bo ones came up trumps especially as they have a sale on currently.  Still I managed to select half a dozen or so I really wanted to use and have several coloured up ready to make into Christmas cards.

The stamp image was not the first one I coloured but it was the first one to be made into a card.  I took my images and found papers I thought would work well with the images.  This one jumped straight out at me so was the first to be done.

Once again I have used the same colour palette for this one and the next three cards I post featuring stamps from Teddy Bo.  I like to do this when feeling inspired and I guess being a bit lazy too as I don't have to think too hard about what colour combinations etc.  This usually works well when I don't choose the papers first.
