I wish it could be Christmas everyday!!

Hello everyone - I just purchased this new Penny Black stamp set called "Christmas Every Day" The reason I bought it was mostly because of this adorable Teddy Bear image. I just love him!!! I colored him with Copic markers (I didn't keep track of my numbers - I know it was the E20 markers though) and then using paper from Cottage Christmas Paper Pad (I love those smaller paper pads as they always have great coordinating colors and the print is normally smaller which I love) I paper-pieced his jammies - don't you just love his little fluffy belly sticking out!!!! I think it is so cute!!! Anyways I used my Cricut Christmas Noel cartridge and cut out the window in the background. The paper used was also from the same Cottage Christmas Paper Pad. The image is from the same PB stamp set as well. I used Tim Holtz Vintage photo to distress the edges somewhat and used my new Marianne Design Creatables die cut to cut and emboss the poinsetta flower. At the end I added a couple of copper brads in each corner to add to the rustic type look. I layered cardstock and patterned paper and then added some faux stitching around the edges of main image and sentiment. I am going to enter this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week as the theme is Christmas Cards. I actually love how this card turned out and my mind was thinking as I was trying to sleep and I envisioned this card all in blues so I will try and make that as well. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog I really appreciate that you take time out of your busy day to visit. Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and keep warm - we have snow where we are - way too early for my liking!!

Bye for now
Your Stamping friend, Debbie
