Christmas Teddy

Good afternoon folks, hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I decided I needed a day off so had a little play. I love all the stamps from Lili of the Valley and have inked up Christmas Teddy - Big Star from last Christmas release. In my opinion these stamps will never go out of date cos they´re all so adorable. A wee note to my American and Canadian buddies - these beauties can also be purchased from Simon Says Stamp.

I have coloured with my copics and prismas as always and added gold glamour dust to the star. Poinsetties have been glittered with stickles and these and the flat backed pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Papers are BG Eskimo Kisses, image was cut out with my nesties and the ribbon is from my stash. I can´t believe how well I am doing with my Christmas cards this year so there should be no last minute panic for a change!


Simon Says Stamp Challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show have joined together to bring us their Stamp - Tember Hop - I have chosen Christmas for their theme of Holiday Fun.
