Christmas Sparkle with Barry

 Challenge time at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is "Christmas Teddies" and we have TWO wonderful sponsors for this challenge, Crafty Ribbons and Di's Digi Stamps!

The weather here in British Columbia is definitely colder now and as I type this our furnace pumping in heat.  I am a cold weather gal, I love cold and crisp days and if it snows, even better!  As we all know, with the colder weather comes steps closer to Christmas and I hope our challenge will inspire you to start those Christmas cards.

For our Christmas Teddy theme, searched through my stash and came across this little fella.  If anyone remembers Stamp Fairy, that's where I got Barry from.  

I colored Barry with Copic markers, used a white gel pen in a few spots and added glossy accents for some dimension.  The sentiment is from Digi Stamp Boutique (another great spot for stamps however along with Stamp Fairy they are no longer). In keeping with the sparkle sentiment, I added a bit of bling.

Time to pull out those Christmas/wintery papers and start creating!

  1. Hi Michelle.....fabulous card, what a cute bear, and your colouring looks awesome. xx

  2. Your Christmas card is totally adorable. I love the image, of course, and the bold colors throughout the card.

    Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for our Sketch challenge!


  3. And Barry is super cute! Great image & coloring, great paper...mission accomplished, Michelle! Yep, puts me in a Christmas mood! And just an aside here, is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of the stamp companies we used to like are no longer around? I liked Digi Stamp Boutique, too, and Whimsie Doodles, and Digital Delights, and Meljens Designs, etc. etc. I hate to see that. Oh, and we had snow last night at 1,300 meters alt., about 15 minutes from our house!

    1. So very true, some of the great companies are no longer and it's so disappointing - I too loved all those you mentioned! SNOW!! I love snow, must be a beautiful sight :)

  4. wonderful coloring of that cute little holiday cutie ... so very glad you joined our Creature Feature at Jingle Belles.

  5. oh my gosh, such a cool card, love that sweet bear! thanks for joining our Creature Feature at Jingle Belles!
