This is something that is unheard of – I am posting two cards in one week. In the future I do hope that that is something I can achieve, but can not always predict with work commitments.
This card is one that I made so that it can be entered into the Lili of the Valley September Facebook Challenge – Colours, which can also be entered itto the Paper Creators challenge – simply Christmas as I had used James the Bear Pile of Presents, a rubber stamp which is no longer available in stamp form. However it is still available in digi download format. He was coloured in with Warm Grey Promarker Pen, whilst the presents were Pumpkin, Pine and Chilli Red. Paper came from a stash which I had printed some time ago but was perfect for the colour challenge. The fur is Wow white fine glitter and the sentiment is also a Lili of the Valley stamp. That is now the start of my Christmas Card making for the year.

I regularly post cards that I make for friends and family. As this is my 35 Wedding Anniversary – who would believe it I wanted to make a quick card for my husband who loves all cards I make for him.
This one was made using another Lili of the Valley stamps, James the Bear, which this time I bought the digital download to use. Coloured him in using grey Promarkers and layered onto Nitwits backing paper.
LOTV November Facebook Challenge
Having entered the LOTV Facebook Monthly Challenge regularly, this was one that stretched my abilities. Having never made a card with specific colours, the LOTV Facebook November Challenge wanted to bring together colours to commemorate Remembrance Sunday. This time I did not have a card ready and waiting to fit the challenge so had to look through my paper stash to see what was available. I picked three different LOTV stamps as I was still not sure what the theme was going to be. I found Nitwits Polar paper which I though had all the colours I needed, background plain paper, Promarker pens and WOW Glitter. These would be perfect to make a Christmas Card using James the Bear with tinsel.
Hope you like the result.
LOTV James the Christmas Bear
Still cannot quite get in to the groove to make Christmas cards. Made one before, but saw the competition on Lili of the Valley Facebook Challenge which this time is Christmas. So I decided to enter (again)
I just love James the Bear – whether it is for a Birthday, Christmas or just a Get Well card. He is so cute. This one was made using Chilli Red ProMarker a tough of glitter and layered on to NitWit Polar Pals paper.
