Despite having enough Christmas cards for this year, I felt the need to do something festive, so set to making more, with previously unused free stamps from a magazine. Usually when I make a card I stick to one thing, IE, stamps, or spellbinders or Sizzix, this time I went all out and used the lot - a stamped image, coloured in, then framed using the oval Spellbinders frames, and finally, using a Sizzix embossing folder for a snowy background effect. What fun, and such a lovely big mess. Most unlike me.
Using the bears' advent present of Stickles, I stickled the bobble of the bobble hat to make the cards that little bit more festive. Now I need to find somewhere to store them until they're needed next year.
Just for miniowner, I took a picture of our smiley panda bag, in honour of her smiley pot! She'll know what I mean, even if I do seem half cracked to every one else who reads this.
Before I tootle off in search of snacks, did you know the bears hold their own monthly literary based, just for fun challenge, details for this month can be found by pressing your furry paw here . If you have some spare time over Christmas (cue manic laugh) there's still plenty of time to play.
Lastly, we'd like to wish our lovely friends and followers, and new visitors, a very happy Christmas, we hope it's all you wish it to be. Keep safe, and remember the most important Christmas rule - one chocolate for each paw!!!
With love from the bears.
