Teddy and Robin - Snowball Race!

I made a couple of cards with this very cute Cuddly Buddly image Little Lu On Your Marks, Get Set...   it's a quick image to colour and I've added some Stardust Stickles to his fur trims and also to the snow on the trees....

Quite a simple design... the gorgeous paper is from Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove pad. The Ribbon is Papermania - Home for Christmas. And I've just added my favourite Memory Box Frosty Border using mint coloured pearl card. Oh and the sentiment is from LOTV - 'Icy Angel' stamp set... I've used this sentiment quite a lot this year.. it's a nice size and fits well on most cards.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers - sorry about the photos... none of the sparkles are showing up on this picture... it was So dull but I had to photograph it quickly as I was posting my cards that afternoon!!

It's a horrid day today... pouring with rain!!! I think I prefer the cold and ice! last night we had a lovely pink sunset which looked very pretty with the frost covered garden... and our little robin visited the bird feeder.... so it was like a Christmas Card scene! Smile
Hope you are all keeping warm and snug!
Love and hugs
