Polar Bear Party


Good morning and happy weekend, another 'just because'  card I made to join in a few challenges!

 I used the sketch from Moving Along with the Times

and one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Polar Bear Party from Whipper Snapper Stamps. These guys come out every year for an airing- I never tire of colouring them, the stamp stamps beautifully and is easy to cut out, also I haven't seen anyone else use it - I'm sure they have but I haven't seen it! So this card also fits the current challenge at 

It's for Christmas, aways a special celebration, so I'm entering this weeks  700th Challenge at Allsorts

The bears are stamped, coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped up on foam. Papers are Carta Bella- All bundled up. Added embellishments are die cut snowflakes, tiny flat back pearls and 3 extra mittens, cut from the dp and popped up on foam so I'm also entering into the current challenge at

My Christmas card stash is growing slowly but steadily, I'm hoping that there'll be no last minute panic this year- it will be a first!

Thanks for stopping by today, much appreciated!
