Just Cute Bears

Morning All,
Hope you all had a great weekend. Weather was great here.
Todays gift bag is for the challenge at Just Cute Bears.
The challenge this week is for any kind of embossing. I have used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the white bazzill c/s. Put a hint of blue chalk over it. Image is from a Buzzcraft set, the bear essentials. Love this image as it has both of my faves, teddy and snowman.
Coloured with Distress inks on watercolour paper. Polar white flower soft on hat trim and bobble. Glitter for snow. Looks better IRL. Image mounted with Nestabilities. Sentiment is from a SU set. Ribbon is SU also.
Have a good week everyone and thanks so much for visiting and leaving any comments. I really appreciate it.

how CUTE is this and the other cards you have made recently... Only "bad" thing about the cards we make for soldiers we cannot use any glitter for safety reasons - but the more I make the better I get at finding other ways of embellishing cards - but I do like GLITTER a lot!! Thanks for visiting and for your nice comment - YES busy times it has been - especially getting nearly 600 cards sorted and packed and shipped and running my own blog AND the OSH-blog - but I love every minute of it and as you said it's such a worthy cause...
