Contemporary Christmas

Good evening everyone - just a quick post from me tonight.

At the beginning of the week I got so involved with using my new LotV Christmas stamps with my new vibrant and funky (and very unlike me) Bo Bunny paper, that I inadvertently got a ahead of myself and made a card for last week's LotV Challenge that would have been perfect for this week lol!

So for this week's LotV Challenge #66 which is non-traditional Christmas , I just had to make another one with the same paper ... but thistime I returned to James the Bear for my image.

This has to be a short post because it is a last minute entry using the sketch at this week's Create4Fun #38, which closes tonight.

I would also like to enter this card for

Papertake Weekly - Animal magic
Teddy Stampers #20 - Bear Acrostic
(B is for Bear/Bo Bunny/Bauble; E is for embossed edge punch/embellishment; A is for alcohol markers; R is for ribbon)
Pollycraft #62 - Cute & Cuddly
Delightful Challenge - Make it Sparkle

Main image: LotV "James the BEar with Tinsel" coloured with Copics and Promarkers, and tinsel decorated wtih lime green Stickles;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
