LOTV - James Bear in the Snow

Another card from the Lili of the Valley latest releases. Do tell me if you get sick of seeing - I bought that many stamps on Friday, that I feel I have to make a card with every single one LOL
This is one is for my Daughter's friend - only have 3 more to do for her. Going to be using the same teddy but colouring him in, in different colours.

Used pro-markers to colour him - warm greys for his body and pinks for his scarf and hat. Though the picture does look like I have used peaches....honestly I haven't. Glittered parts of the scarf and hat. Stamped snow flakes on the right with Hero Arts stamps....they are so tiny, yet the best I have. Embossed with Stamp and Bond, then glittered with fine pink.

Snow flake is from a stash I bought about two years ago....the shop is no longer open now, so pointless telling you where. I am disappointed though cus my stash will be none existent once my Christmas cards are done this year. They are actually quite thick, an hard plastic and already coated in glitter....they were originally my table decorations. I just added a gem in the middle.

Sentiment tag is a collection I bought from the HobbyCraft, just added fine glitter to the edges.
Actual card only measures 4 x 4 inches....that's so tiny for me. I was so scared of adding flowers incase it looked OTT! Not even a bow - this is not like me at all!!!!
I will be entering Little James in to the Meljens Challenge - Use 3 Different Shapes.

Well, I hope your weekend as been good for all of you. I have spent most of my time in the conservatory ( my craft room ) stamping away and glittering up....I would rather be there than looking at Victor Meldrew sitting on my sofa.
So good night peeps....catch you all soon.
