Have a BEARy Merry Christmas!

Hi, everyone!

What a fun day! Shared a table at the craft show at my former workplace with a good friend and caught up with so many other work friends.  :)

Now for today's card. Last year, I made a little polar bear card that stole my heart. I loved him so much that I just had to send a few more of these little guys to OWH this holiday season, as well as bring a few of them along to this year's craft show.   :)

Distress Ink core stormy sky, fired brick, mustard seed, and pine needles; stash white and black cardstock
SU word window punch, Marvy and Paper Shaper circle punches; EK hole punch
Recollections snowflake punch; Emagination tree punch; ??? corner rounder for treetop star
Creative Memories oval cutting system (for ears and snout); Uni-ball white gel pen
hand-drawn/traced, fussy-cut Santa hat and candy cane
inside sentiment: Have a BEARy Merry Christmas

I have to say these cards were so labor intensive. But, if I do say so myself, they were so worth it!  :)

I'm linking up this little guy for the current Cards In Envy Santa challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge to make a holiday card.

Parting Thoughts

I really have to get to that OWH Red Friday love card blog hop. It's on tomorrow's to-do list.

December Challenge:
Dec. 1 - Dec. 21
The December Words 2 Scrap By challenge went live yesterday. This month's words are Eat, Drink, and Be Merry. Hope you'll find a little time this busy month to play along!

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. Cute card! I love the Santa hat on the polar bear and the snowflakes! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy!

  2. Totally adorable! Love your Christmas polar bear! Thank you for joining us at Cards in Envy! ~ Marilyn

  3. Well I can certainly see how this polar bear stole your heart! He is not only adorable, but I love how you've made him peeking over the edge in such a cute pose! He looks so full of life and I want to see what he plans to do with his candy cane! I love how he has a Christmas tree in the background and the snowflakes are the perfect frosty touch. I do agree that this scene was worth every ounce of the effort you put into it and I'm so glad you shared your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  4. Hi Sybrina! That polar bear scene is so stinkin' cute! Hope you had a successful craft show :-) Thanks for playing along at Cards in Envy!

  5. I haven't yet tried the polar bears, but they always bring a smile to my face - and yours is no exception. I'm sure whoever receives this adorable card will have the same reaction. Thanks for sharing your card at Cards in Envy! :)
