I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas


Hi there - I think I have finally woken up to the fact that I am still woefully short of Christmas cards, and that I need to really get a wriggle on for the remaining (few) months of the year! I do have some new Chrimbo stamps which haven't yet seen ink, but for some reason I was drawn to this darling teddy - I just love this series of LotV bears as they have such adorable faces!


I also took the opportunity to use my new Memory Box border die - I love these dies; they are just so intricate and pretty.

Stamps: LotV "James Bear - In the Snow"; sentiment from "Christmas grungy messages" set;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers + lots of glamour dust;
Papers: LotV "Frosty Christmas";
Supplies: clear gems from stash;
Tools: Memory Box "frostyville Border" and "Snowy Corner" dies.
