Merry Christmas

Hello everyone

This is my last Christmas card for this year and it's for my daughter, it seems it's always those important ones that are last to be done!

I've used the Penny Black stamp Dashing Through the Snow, coloured with ProMarkers, Memory Box die and my old snowflake punch with glitter paper, the background papers are Country Companions Christmas pad again and I've used lots of Stickles and Glamour Dust for the snow.  I decoupaged the Christmas tree and sledge and paper pieced a couple of the parcels.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas
Without Words - Nearest and Dearest
Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas ..... card of the year
My Mum's Craft Shop - Wintery/Christmassy - 3rd entry

All that's left to say is a big thank you to those who have supported me in my first 6 months of blogging and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and happy and healthy New Year.

Best wishes

Snowy Bear

Hello everyone

Christmas is not far away, I think I've seen a countdown that said 16 days!  

Today I'm back with a card using the polar bear stamp from LOTV again.  I love this little chap and his penguin friend.  The sentiment tags are also LOTV.  Coloured with ProMarkers, stickles and glamour dust for the snow, ribbon from stash, papers are Country Companions as before, the white pearlised card is from Papermill Direct and the glitter paper is from my stash.  I've used Memory Box snowflake die and Spellbinders circles die for the frame.
