Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas to all my friends and family!


I have, once again, made three different Christmas cards this year.
Hopefully by now, they are in the hands of all my loved ones.
I will post one today....this one was voted as both my husbands and my daughters favorite of the three I made.

When I saw this set in the mini catalog, I just fell in love with it.
That polar bear is just ... well, cuddly! I could give him a big ol' hug.
But, I'll just enjoy some hot cocoa with him instead
.


I think we are all getting spoiled. It used to be that we used background stamps for everything and now these embossing folders make life so easy and there is more texture to make our cards pop. I love it!

And again, you can see that I got out my brayer, I think it made a wonderful background for our bear friend.




Set: Cold & Cuddly
Accessories: Cranberry Crisp, Bordering Blue, Whisper White cardstocks & Holiday Thyme DP. Brayer, Dazzeling Diamonds, White EP, Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Taffeta White Ribbon, Cranberry Crisp Stitched Ribbon, Sponge and Snowflakes CB folder.

This reminds me of that Coke commercial with the Polar Bear. Do you remember it? :) So cute and I can see why it was voted numero uno by the fan club!
