Have Yourself a Beary Little Christmas...

Tuesday, 24 November 2009
This weeks Challenge over on Allsorts is a Christmas Carol or a Song Title.

One of my favourite Christmas songs is Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sung by Vanessa Williams. I love this song! I know she's not the original singer, but hers was the 1st version I heard growing up and it's stuck!

I have tweaked the words a little for my card to say "Beary" instead of "Merry", however I think the image I've used could come up with a couple more songs, like Frosty the Snowman or Winter Wonderland!

This stamp is so sweet, in fact I love all the Bear Essential stamp sets but I was very restrained and limited myself to just one! You can get these from the wonderful Tracey at Dies to Die For.

Stamps: Bear Essentials set 435-Dies to Dies For; Inks: Copics,Spica Glitter Pen Memento Tuxedo Black
CS & Paper : Stampin Up! & CWC ; Tools: Argyle CB Folder, Nestabilities
Sentiment: CWC oval

It's a shame you can't tell from the images, but the shadows around the snowman and the fur trim of the hat have all been glittered using the clear Spica Glitter pen. I have also glittered around the embossed shapes too. I think the sentiment I have used, whilst not being christmassy, is just perfect for the meaning of the image.
I hope everyone is having a good day. This weather has been atrocious recently and my heart and sympathies are with all those that have been affected by the devastating floods in Cumbria over the weekend. I can't imagine what they are going through. It puts things into perspective.
