Christmas Teddy Bear

Happy Wednesday before Christmas! I hope everyone is in better shape than me for Christmas - I'm still fighting the shopping crowds on the mad dash to get last minute gifts!  I've never been this behind before and feeling a bit of panic but it'll all get done somehow!

We have a great new challenge starting today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - you'll love this sketch with it's abundance of wonderful embellishment opportunities!

I can't wait to see what everyone will do with this terrific sketch by our own Arlana. It whips up pretty quickly and is fun to work with. Give it a try and play along with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Boutique.  They are offering the Grand Prize winner of our challenge 6 free digi images from the DSB store - a generous and fabulous prize to be sure! All you have to do is play along in the sketch challenge and leave a comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.  I hope you'll join us this week!

I selected this adorable teddy bear for my card called "Winter Louie" from Digi Stamp Boutique. Isn't he just the cutest little bear? He was brought to life with Copics and I added some icycle Stickles on his hat trim and crystal lacquer on his nose.  The papers are from Canvas Corp. and the fun sparkly foam packages I used as embellishments are stickers that I found at Michaels craft store.

You'll find a lot more creativity with Digi Stamp Boutique images from my teamies at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - stop on over there and take a look!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!  Thanks for stopping by!

It is hard to believe that we picked the same image this week with all the images that there is to choose from. Isn't he a cutie. I fell in love with this little guy. You have colored him up beautifully. I am always in awe with your cards. You always do such a fabulous job. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.
Hugs, Nancy

Sharon, love this card and those packages just make it super special!! I am sorry you are feeling the last minute panic, I hate that! I am in better shape this year, but our list is smaller and different so that has helped. Merry Christmas and enjoy the weekend.
hugs, Patti
