Christmas Bear (for two challenges)
A couple of monthly challenges have popped up that have inspired me, so this card is for:
St Luke's Charity Card Challenge and
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.
