Holiday Teddy Bear

Morning!

Hope you're having a good Tuesday. I've been able to get back to stamping now that power is back, school is open, and life is getting back to normal. Although, I know for some, power is still out here in NH. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer.

I made this card this morning using my Favorite Teddy Bear set from SU!. This is a retired set that I dug out of the back of my closet. It's adorable, so I think it will be staying in the front of the closet when I put it away. I never think to drag out some of the retired sets I have, but I'm going to change that! Too many good sets not to use them!

I started by coloring my teddy bear image with watercolor crayons, then added a paper pieced scarf and holiday gift. I added crystal effects and chunky glitter to the bottom for snow. I used Ski Slope DSP and felt snowflakes to complete this card. It's simple, but I like it. Now I need to find my Christmas card list and get this little guy in the mail!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping in! Are you up for a challenge? Head over to PCP and join in the Whimsy Winter Challenge for your chance to win a brand new Whimsy Stamp! Click here for details!
