Baby boy's First Christmas

Our hot weather has finally disappeared and today can't seem to make it's mind up. One minute showery, then the sun comes out. Definitely cooler though, we've gone from abut 25 degrees to about 15 predicted today. My craftroom is lovely and warm though as it has the airing cupboard in it.

My card today is for a baby boy's first Christmas. I wanted to us a different image for this one from the usual Pink Gem one I often use and thought this little bear was perfect. He is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I really love these flexmarkers and can't wait to get some more of them. Papers are MME Snowed in and DCWV Winter stack. I made some heart corners using a Sizzix die and added the ribbon and hearts. The sentiment is from a Humphrey's Corner stamp die cut with a Spellbinder label die.
