James Bear - In the Snow

Well hello again!  Two days in a row.  I don't know it that's happened before.  If you didn't see the card I posted yesterday please check out the card my son made.

Ok, I'm going to go ahead and warn you that you will be seeing a lot of this stamp in the months to come. It is one of my favorites to color and I think it's just the cutest image.  Meet James...

I'm sure some of you have already met this cute guy from Lili of the Valley, but I just wanted to share him with you because I just love this little fella.  I've got another Christmas stamp of him too, so you'll be seeing that soon as well.

For my card I sewed the front panels, ran some ribbon across the front, added a brad and charm, and topped his hat off with some Flower Soft.

I'm off to a good start on my Christmas cards this year and I'm hoping to have them done before Thanksgiving (we'll see how that goes).
