Winter Bear Christmas Card

Hello and happy hump day!  I'm running late on making Christmas cards...well, I'm going to be honest, I'm late on just about everything at the moment and boy is my back killing me - since that's where I carry my stress.  And having a back being held together with titanium bars and 8 long screws, it tends to affect whether my legs work or not.

But I'm not here for a pity party!  I'm here to show you my latest card for the Catch the Bug Holiday Critter Chaos week!  This is a week of challenges with lots of prizes, so join in if you get a chance!

I'm featuring Bugaboo Stamps Winter Bears Mini Set, which comes with the sentiment.  I colored up a few of these, added a few snowflakes from Sizzix, sequins, and twine.  I kept this as flat as possible for mailing.

So that is my share today.  Please join the week long challenges if you can!  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

This meets the following challenges:  Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Anything Goes ChristmasLove to Craft: December's Anything Goes, A Place to Start: Happy Holidays, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.

Rising Star Badge  Thank you A Place to Start!

Wow! That colorful background is stunning Lola!! Really love that sweet little bear and you've colored him up so beautifully too! The snowflakes are the perfect accent for this card! Sending comfort wishes your way!

Carolina Girl said...'s 65 and windy and cold to us here in Florida. All the kids are really "IN" to ice hockey here...go figure! Darling card...did you make the background with ink have been doing that. So sorry your back is not cooperating this week. I had 2 back surgeries and I can tell when I'm stressed or standing or sitting to long. BUT, I never got screwed like you (little pun there). Heck, even if I lay too long, it will start hurting. Hang in there. PS....I don't mind getting cards late...hint hint!
