In the Snow

I've used another of the images I stamped when I visited Kaz last month on today's card...this cutie is 'James the Bear - In the Snow' by Lili of the Valley. The paper is by Sandylion, and was a charity shop find by my Mum...if you're a charity shopper, you might like to know that there's still time to join me (and some of my crafty friends) in showing your support by joining in with our Goodwill blog hop which ends tonight...all you need to do is comment on each stop to be in with a chance of winning one of the fabulous prizes...there's some candy along the way too (including on my blog)...the hop starts here. Ok, I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder on white card (just seen behind the bear), added a couple of snowflakes cut using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies, ribbon from my stash, and a few pieces of Card Candi. I distressed all of the edges with ink and my distressing tool, and added some faux stitching to the patterened paper using my CutterBee bug and a white gel pen.
