Christmas Bear (for two challenges)

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a good weekend and enjoyed the fireworks on Saturday (here in the UK.)  I am pleased to say, despite the workload, that I've been able to keep on cardmaking, much to my joy.
A couple of monthly challenges have popped up that have inspired me, so this card is for:
St Luke's Charity Card Challenge     and
Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge.
If you don't know by now, let me tell you that I have a bit of a thing about bears.  There is always room for one more in my house, and always room for one more in my stamp collection.  I tend to use them a lot on cards for my hubby, whether it's birthday, Christmas or our Anniversary.  I tend to buy a new stamp for these occasions, use it on a design for him first, then 'release' it to be used for other people.
This is a Forever Friends bear, which I think I bought from The Glitterpot last Christmas. 
Over at St Luke's they want to see a Christmas card, and for Ready-Teddy they want us to make an easel card, so it was easy to combine the two as you can see.

Stamped Image: The Glitterpot, Forever Friends
Kit: Nellie Snellen circle dies and Nestabilities scalloped circles, Four Frames punch (SU!)
Coloured With: Promarkers: Berry Red, Cardinal Red, Blush, Sandstone etc
Papers: Henbury Lane from Papermania. 
Sentiment: Four Frames (SU!) stamped in red memento ink.  Wording free from magazine.

My stamp-a-ma-jig has just arrived, so I'm very excited and off to have a play with it.  Have a great week, everyone, and thanks for looking in today.  Don't forget to leave me a comment!
