Trying to catch up a bit ...

There's still quite a lot to do following mum's move to a residential home, but I've had a day in today and thought I'd make a card for Pinky's 'a teddy bear' challenge for the Christmas Card Club (I'm two weeks late with this). This is also for Sunday's with Santa on Facebook for week 39 (last Sunday): anything goes.

I've used a couple of Forever Friends bears hugging each other and two or three other elements which were actually part of a set to be used for an anniversary or engagement. I've used Christmas paper offcuts and a piece of glittery holly ribbon that I've had for ages. The sentiment was computer/printer generated and edged with a red copic.


This is also for:

Forever Friends 46: anything goes
Christmas cards all year round October: non traditional image with traditional Christmas colours
Jolly holly Christmas: glitter and bling
Simon says: glimmer and sparkle
Tuesday throwdown 118: cute and cuddly
Just keep on creating: Christmas is around the corner
Pixie's crafty snippets 41
Totally Gorjuss 152: anything goes
