Stepper card.....

Morning peeps hope you all had a lovely weekend, I've managed to get two of the christmas trees up yesterday, only one to go in my sons room, but I need to get in his room first with a duster and a vacumn cleaner and hes busy fininshing off a project that he is doing at University so it might have to wait a couple of days. It took me all day to get the trees up and decorate the room and I'm pooped not only that I'm now coming down with a cold and my sore throat is coming back.....drat. I've ,well I say I, what I really mean is my son has popped on another blog background so that its also dressed for Christmas........which I think looks so sweet. I thought I'd post a non Christmas card today as I spent the early part of yesterday morning doing a production line of Christmas cards ready to post this week, just need to finish them off. The image comes from Pretty Tuff which is the latest Cd from Nickky at Polkadoodles  the papers and sentiment are also from the same Cd. I made the teddy by covering a diecut in matching paper distressed the edges and then added glossy accents onto the diecut sprinkling in silver glitter.....you get a lovely glossy sparkly bear which makes a great embellishment for this sweet image. The matching buttons are also a die from Dy-namics.



Challenges
Crafty Pad........no birthdays or Christmas.
Corrosive Challenge......anything but a Christmas card.
Allsorts ....use two colours and white.
Crafty catz......anything goes
Totally Papercrafts.....anything but Christmas.
Cute Card Thursday......anything goes.
Wags n Whiskers.....fancy folds

Off to work now, I've relented and let the staff start playing Christmas music
for the next two weeks, as soon as I go out the back I just know they'll change the Cd 
to play Slade or Wizard rather than something more traditional and the volume seems to go up as well......hmmmm!
We shall all be wearing our Christmas head gear, I ussually have a halo.......lol, well I have to look angellic,
the others have Santa hats or Reindeer antler bands so we all look festive and have some fun 
as it will be soooooo busy for the next two weeks.......well I hope it is.

How sweet and your teddy is perfect with this! Sounds as if you have been super busy this weekend and so sorry you are falling ill again. Not the best time of year for that. Sounds like a fun time at work, wish I were closer so that I could come see.
Have a great day,
hugs, Patti
