Feeling Christmassy

Hello lovely people,

I am starting to feel quite Christmassy as somehow it feels like it's just around the corner once we get into October, plus I have been buying some lovely new Christmas craft stash to play with :-)

Before I get into using that though, I knew just who would really make me feel even more super Christmassy...the one and only gorgeous James bear from LOTV!

The design is very simple but I liked the idea of the twine wrapped round the card looking kind of like a present.

I have used the rubber stamp version of this image (now discontinued) so I could colour it with my Inktense pencils but you can buy the digi stamp straight away from the shop if you can't resist lovely James!

Love James Bear... always have,always will. I especially like seeing him all decked out in his Christmas finery like you did on this pretty card.
Fab colouring and you know I admire your gorgeous stitching so much. It really does add to a card.

What a cute addition to the Christmas card pile Kat. James is such a gorgeous bear and the colour combo looks so good, particularly wrapped in the twine, what a good idea xx

Such a cutie (both James and your card)! Love the wonderful soft feel of the pencils and that twine was a brilliant idea!

That's just what Barry looks like when he gets out our tinsel and baubles - always wrapped around his neck!! hehe! LOVE how you coloured James of course... and yes the twine idea is so clever giving the impression of a wrapped gift. Perfect colour combo and fab paper choice make it one gorgeous card!
