A very Beary Christmas

 Hello everyone out there in Blog land

Here is my latest christmas card  which features the lovely LOTV James the bear and their wonderful new christmas sentiment set.

The papers are from First edition  and the dies are memory box, this stamp above is called James stocking and I just loved colouring it, it is a dream to use.

Here is the back with James Snowman and James Santa Stop either side.

The view from the front when the card is closed,Frosty Christmas from memory box is used on the bottom and the snowflakes are from Memory box and spellbinders they are inked on the edges with tea die from Tim Holtz then I have added Stickles in stardust.

The view from above

Think this is my favourite stamp so far, I just love colouring it in, and of course had to add some stickles.

I just love this sentiment from the new christmas set, and I think I will be using this and the other phrases again and again. Just think, three cards down a hundred or so to go!!!!

Please let me know what you think, I love to read all your comments

 best wishes Maria
