U for Up To You

Good Morning, I hope that you are all well.
We are at the middle of the week so just a few more days to go until the weekend. This weekend I will be finding myself in the Big Apple, I have not been to New York City before so I am looking forward to it. We have concert tickets for Sunday night and I am hoping to be able to take in a show on Broadway as well.
 
Back to today. We have a new challenge starting over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and I think that you are going to like this one. Our theme this time around is
U for Up To You
That's right a nice easy one! You can do whatever you want as long as it is Christmas.
 
We have some great sponsors for this challenge too
 

 
and
Meljen's Designs
Prize 4 images of winners choice
 
 
For my card today,  I have chosen to use a favorite teddy stamp from LOTV. I have coloured this little guy with Copics and accented with tinsel glitter and glossy accents for some sparkle and shine. The papers that I have used are a mix from 4 different holiday pads. I was trying for a monochromatic holiday feeling of red and white but if you look closely a tiny touch of green still managed to sneak in there.
 
I do hope that you will join us for the challenge as I am looking forward to seeing all of your holiday creations. Before you head off to your crafting tables, be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas blog to see the rest of the gorgeous DT creations.
Happy Crafting!
