P is for Polar Bear

Good morning!

I'm feeling a bit brighter today and more in the mood for crafting and blogging, don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of crafting lol??!!  By life I mostly mean work, I was only in a day and a half this week but feel like I've been through the mill and like I've never been away from the place :(

On to some happy news now - I'm delighted to say I've been welcomed on to the C.R.A.F.T Challenge DT along with my daughter Iona who is on the Junior DT.  I will be joining the challenge fortnightly from next week, exciting!!!  They've just launched a new challenge today and it's an Inspiration Picture Challenge which you can link to here.

Ok, my card...  I'm a wee bit behind with my A-Z Challenge cards but I'm hopeful I'll catch up.  Today I'm on P although everyone else will probably be on S by now!  I've gone for P for Polar Bear.  I've wanted this Sugar Nellie 'Furry Friends' stamp for ages, It's possibly available in a digi format but I can't resist a rummage through the stamps when I visit the Papercraft Boutique in Elgin, which I was lucky enough to do last weekend.  They also had some of the new Sugar Nellie toppers by Hobby House and they look fantastic!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers, added some Stickles to the hat and gloves, then fussy cut around it.  I've used My Minds Eye Merry papers and added some more Stickles to the edges.  The snowflake circle die is by X-cut and I've used a LOTV sentiment on a Spellbinders lacey circle die cut.  I've added some crystal gems, blue pearls and gingham ribbon to finish my card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
