Teddies and some exciting news


Before I get on to my card today I just wanted to share my exciting news that I am now designing for Crafts Beautiful and Quick Cards Made Easy magazines. My first projects for them will be out in the next few weeks. So onto my card. It is my turn to host the new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and I have chosen the theme of Teddy Bears. I kept changing my mind about which image to use and as you can see from the DT cards there are lots to choose from in the Pink Gem store. I thought I should get another Christmas card made so here is my DT card. I hope you will play along for a chance to win 2 of Janet's lovely digis.
Image - Pink Gem Barclay with snowflake
Medium - Copics
papers - LOTV 'Twas the Night
Sentiment - LOTV
Dies - MB stitched snowflakes with added white Wink of Stella pen

I added Stickles to the snowflake after I coloured it and the shine has bounced off the camera lens a bit but at least it shows how sparkly it is.

Challenges
The Ribbon Girl any card 
Crafty Calendar anything goes 
Noor! Design UK anything goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' animals
Penny's anything goes
Creative Inspirations Your favourite things (teddies, Pink Gem digis, Copics, Christmas, snowflakes) Winter Wonderland Pink or blue
