Cute and Cuddly and Non Traditional Colours too!

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are having a good week.

So, finally we had a full day of sunshine here yesterday and here I am with a Christmas card !! It is for a good reason though as today is the mid-way reminder and inspiration post for the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge
Our fun theme this month is

Cute & Cuddly + Non Traditional Colours

We are sponsored by the fabulous Flat Friends with a prize of 4 Digis to the lucky winner


This theme gave me a great excuse to colour one of my favourite bears - Lili of the Valley's James Bear and use one of my favourite colour combinations too.



Items Used
Stamp - LOTV James Bear in the Snow coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers - LOTV Krafty Christmas
Sentiment - LOTV Christmas Sentiment Tags
Memory Box Precious Stars
Glamour Dust
Seam Binding, gems and button from stash

If you take a look at the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge you will see the wonderful creations to inspire you from the rest of the design team.



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Buttons and Bows
Sweet Stampin' Cute and Cuddly
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Lili of the Valley Monthly Challenge - Use a (LOTV) Sentiment
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
Bye for now
hugs

Oh Sue, this is adorable and all things festively beautiful. :o) The colors are gorgeous and so perfect for a Christmas card. I know it's non-traditional, but I truly adore this color combo because it makes me think of icy snowflakes and gingerbread. :o) The bear is definitely cute and cuddly and I adore the precious stars and heart-centered bow. Stunning work, my talented friend! I am hoping to make a Christmas card this weekend before the new IFTL recipient is announced Monday! Fingers crossed I can squeeze it in. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
