Cozy Christmas Bear




Happy Halloween,

I hope everyone is having a good week. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of NY & NJ who were severely impacted by Sandy.  We were without power for about 18 hours. A large tree fell about 25 -50 feet from our drive way and down came the power lines. Of course right across our driveway. It was a long night with all the trucks, lights and chain saws. The dogs were not happy about all the commotion. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.

Today I don't have a Halloween card but a Christmas card. I just got this adorable stamp on Saturday from the mail man/woman and had to ink him up.

Here are the goodies that I used:
Magnolia Stamps - Cozy Christmas Bear & Sentiment - Vintage Merry Post
Memory Box Paper - Pixie
Echo Park - Christmas Day
Tulle
Ribbon
Bling
Flowers
Memory Box -Frosty Border, Frostyville Border, Crystal Snowflake
Spellinder
Tim Holtz Clock Die
Tim Holtz Christmas Token
Distress Ink - Festive Berries
Martha Stewart - Snowflake Punch
Copic Markers
Glitter
Liquid Pearls

Here is a closer view:


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Tilda's Town - Challenge #24 Merry Christmas
Midweek Magnolia's - #35 Anything Goes
Magnonlia Down Under - Challenge #170 Birthstones ( July-Ruby)
