Hello everyone.
I'm so sorry i've been away for so long! I've had about 40 card orders in the last week, and what with trying to balance eveything out with craft, and school work, it gets really difficult at times! My first three Christmas cards have all been made with the same image. I'm so glad i bought this little fellow from the NEC... he's gorgeous!

I found these yummy DCWV papers at the bottom of my paper pile, and i just love the rich colours and beautiful designs. This pack is availiable from Bunny-Zoes-Crafts.

I'm entering the first one into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is animals.I sewed together some green ribbon and secured it with a red button.
I've chosen Creative Inspirations challenge which is sparkle!! I've addded LOTS of Glamour Dust to this bears hat.
