Another Christmas Bear...

Morning peeps, hopefully the Sun is shining where you are, I so need to get outside and sort my poor neglected garden out before winter sets in, but then I get side tracked.....you know what I mean, you sit down with your craft bits n' bobs and before you know it 2 hours+ has gone by and the housework is still waiting to be done, so I'm doing an early post today in the hope that I do get outside and do some weeding......urgh, why are they the only things that grow at a rate of knots, as soon as you've pulled one out another takes it place, anyway back to toadys card.....its a DT card for Cuddly Buddly, I'm a sucker for these cutie bears, the papers are Quilted Holly and as you can see I've kept to the holly theme going by using a Martha Stewart punch and some gold rub ons, the snowfalkes I made using the Marianne dies....cut through thin acetate and then add clear glue and sprinkle glamour dust on the top, when thats dried I added gold stickles to add more colour to the snowflake.

I stiched around the edges and then added diamond stickles ontop of the stitching
rubbed diamond stickles to the background of the image.




topped off the snowflakes with a diamante flower trim

Challenges
