Magical Christmas


Time to get cracking on those Christmas cards or I won't have enough to sell when the Christmas fairs start. I used my favourite Christmas papers as I love blue and brown together. I wish I had another pad of these papers as mine are almost used.
Image, Postcard and Sentiment - Pink Gem Barclay with bauble
Medium - Copics, Sakura gold star pen
Papers - Bo Bunny Snowfall
Punch - MS deep snowflake border
Other - Stickles, Viva pearl pen

Challenges
Craftyhazelnut 3 of something (3 Pink Gem digis) 
Natalie and Amy Four legged friends 
ALBC Child's play 
Sparkles Christmas Favourite colour combination 
Stamping Sensations Animal antics 
Delicious Doodles For the love of animals 
Winter Wonderland No red or green
As you like it Favourite colour duo (I have several but blue and brown is one of my very faves especially for bears and Christmas, the rich browns go so well with soft blues)

Awesome hun, love that colour combo, and your bear is soooooo cute. You have some serious depth of colour on him, he looks like he could simply step off the card. Quick, hide the porridge! Hugs xx
