The 'Bear' Minimum

Just a very quick post today as the internet is painfully slow and I am very close to throwing my laptop across the room!!! (I pay for 10 meg of speed and get 1.5 if I'm lucky - but best not to get me started on that one!)

Anyway, back to the card. There are  quite a few bear related challenges, plus Christmas, plus simple layouts so I thought that I would combine them all, and came up with this, using a LOTV stamp. I have stamped and coloured with Promarkers, as per usual, and I have used mu nesties and Martha Stewart snowflake border punch for the gold  bits. A little bit of doodling and a lovely sentiment stamp from Stamps By Judith, and Bob's your uncle!

So I'm going to enter this one for the following challenges:

  • Crafty Calendar - Let Sleeping Bears Lie
  • Southern Girls - Anything Goes
  • Allsorts - Keep it Simple
  • Magical Monday - Christmas in September
  • Crafters Companion - Christmas Wishes
  • Cupcake Crafts - If you go down to the woods.....
Thanks for looking !

  10. Thank you for playing along with the Magical Monday Challenges. Unfortunately, you didn't use a Magical Character (Angel, Fairy, Mermaid, Dragon, etc...) so it does not qualify for the challenge. There will be a new challenge tomorrow if you would like to play along again.
