Just a quick post this morning to remind you that you still have one more week to participate in over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog where the theme is
B is for Bears
with bunting, buttons, bows and brads.

This time around I have used another adorable LOTV stamp called James with Pile of Presents. All decked out in his Santa hat, he is so cute. I wanted to make a card with really traditional Christmas colours so I have coloured him with Copics to match these richly coloured papers from Basic Grey and MME.

The layout of my card is based off of a previous sketch from the Sketch and Stash challenge. I have pretty much stuck with the sketch but I have flipped the embellishments to the left side. The little metal plaque is from an older Making Memories collection and I have tucked some punched leaves and flowers from WOC in around it to finish it off.

Thanks for coming by today. I hope that you will join us in the challenge, I look forward to seeing your beary cute creations.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
