Christmas Card No. 2!

Once I start making Christmas cards, I can find it hard to stop. :P So I went back to this month's Muse: ChristmasVisions for more inspiration. 


This time I'm using Cornelia's upper-left card as my inspiration. The easy part of the inspiration.. I have a very similar sentiment! And while my initial thought was to also go with cookie-themed images, I just didn't seem to have anything that worked for me. So thematically, my images went in an entirely different direction: 


This bear seemed to have just the right "huh, how did THAT happen" look on his face to go with the sentiment. Please ignore my very rudimentary Copic colouring, I'm new to these markers, and have few colours and little skill. :D What I did have was patterned paper that matched his sweater to complete this clean and simple card. 
I'm also entering this into the current CAS Mix Up challenge, since I've used alcohol markers, stamping, patterned paper, glitter markers and Stickles. 


Supplies: white cardstock, Doodlebug Frosty Friends patterned paper, MFT Cool Day & Riley & Co. Funnybones stamps, MFT black licorice & Stampin' Up real red inks, Copic markers, frosted lace Stickles, clear & black Wink of Stella markers, fun foam

Loved your hmmm, a bit over weight polar bear all bundled up in his beautifully colored sweater and the fun strip of DSP you added to your CAS card design. But your sentiment was really the star of your fun card design:-) TFS Lindsey and playing along with us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs
