CCC Challenge - # 15 - Christmas Teddy

Good morning friends and fellow bloggers.  I'm sorry that I have been AWOL for the past two weeks but there were things going on here that meant it was difficult.  I haven't even done any crafting either.  However, hopefully things are just about back to normal now so I am back with my card for the Christmas Card Club challenge. Today it was Sue P's (Planet Susie's) turn to choose the theme which is Christmas Teddies.

If you would like to see what the rest of the girls have made then you will find them in my right side bar.

My Card

Click image  to  enlarge picture.

My card is 6" x 6". It was matted and layered with red card and paper from Papermania "Home For Christmas". My topper is an image from my Greeting Card Factory programme and I think he is really gorgeous.  I love that he is actually clutching his own teddy.  As soon as I saw Sue's subject I knew exactly which image I wanted to use.   The red border across the centre is "Beautiful Borders",  which is an SB die for Our Daily Bread Designs.  The poinsettias are WOC and the ivy corners are a Signature die.  The sentiment was a Polkadoodles magazine freebie stamp a few years ago. And then, of course, some glitter (naturally) and a few pearls from my stash.

Hope you are all well, and if not then I hope you will soon be feeling much better.

Entered into:


  1. This image is pretty and even has a vintage feel. I always admore those ivy dies and the sparkle on them today is fab.

    The border strip int he middle is gorgeous...what a wonderful die!
    I owe you a long catch up email...the heat up here has us too tired at night for proper catchup...we are heading home tomorrow to sort out the lawn and gardens at home...will have a week to relax at home and then right back up here to the lake...39 degrees today...a tad hot! lol

    Crafty hugs my friend...
