Beary Christmas!

Good Evening my crafty friends and I hope you have had a lovely day. We have been blessed with sunshine here in Dorset today, a little chillier than we have been used to but I've managed to get loads done in the garden before the rain comes back. I then treated myself to some time in my work room and here's what I did...

I felt the need to make another Christmas card and use my lovely new LOTV stamp ( I won it...don't worry I haven't been spending if!). I coloured the little bears to compliment the Christmas in the Country paper. The fab ribbon was part of a prize bundle from Crafty Ribbons and the pine cones are from Joanna Sheen's new Signature die range. I cut them in Kraft card and then sponged them with DI's in Frayed Burlap and Walnut stain for the appearance of texture and finished off with white pen.
