Two more Christmas cards

The weather has been awful here today and and as it has been so dark my photos are not the best I have ever taken. (Updated 27/10 with a photo taken in daylight.) I mostly colour bears yellow or brown but went with grey for a change. James in the snow is LOTV of course, lots of glitter for the snow and glitter flock for his hat. It's those lovely sparkly aqua snowflakes from Me and My Big Ideas again.
Challenges:
Lili of the Valley Winter fun
Friday sketchers Great sketch
Teddy Stampers Open theme
Totally Gorjuss Sparkle
The Crafty Pad Christmas

This sweet angel is from Penny Black. I used the MS snowflake corner punch for the corners on the fab sketch at Cute Card Thursday. Snowflakes are MS too with pearls. I am also entering this into the challenge of let's get punchy at A spoon full of sugar. The colour challenge at Colour Create is purple, aqua and white.

I love a grey bear especially for Christmas, this one is just lovely. What a cute little fairy, and gorgeous with the blues. Hard to get a good photo with the weather these days and I am no good without proper day light lol.
