Patches Loves Christmas:

Good morning all!  It's going to be a beautiful weekend and I don't have much planned which = YIPPEE!

At this moment not many people around here are thinking about Winter and Christmas, especially after we've had a solid seven months of Winter.  But some of us are always thinking ahead :)  This should be card number 15!

I used one of my old favourites, Patches, and coloured him for the first time in brown (he always was a grey bear to me):


Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi and sentiment, American Crafts and Recollections papers, Bazzill Basics and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Recollections gems, Celebrate It ribbon.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Rectangle and Circle Nesties.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Holly Jolly - red, white, blue, Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch) and kraft, ABC Christmas - inspiration photo (I took the colours and baubles from the 3rd photo on the left), Beat the Rush - Christmas



AND...  please meet StampFairy's newest member,
Donny Baby Boy (no photo - you'll have to go look for yourself ;)


With that said, have a super-duper weekend.  Enjoy the sunshine!!
