Just Cute Bears #35 - Punch It!

Sunday, 19 September 2010
Good morning all.  It's my final day before going back to work after 3 weeks off!  So not looking forward to that, but it funds my habit so I can't grumble......(that's my crafting habit before you all start wondering!)

As it's a Sunday, it's time for me to get back into the saddle of Just Cute Bears.  Our challenge this week is Punch It - we want you to get out your punches as we know how much you love them!

This week we're sponspored by:
Wild Rose Studio are the creators of the adorable Milton & Co range,
and we're delighted to sponsor you this week! If you like bears,
you'll love the Milton & Co range - there are lots of cute designs
that you'll use over and over again. Our first ever Milton Christmas
collection is out now, where Milton and Millie get ready for the
festive season with stockings, winter flowers, poinsettias and more.
So if you'd like to make teddy-themed Christmas cards make sure you
check it out!

Dulcie is offering 1 lucky person 2 stamps.

Some of the DT were lucky enough to be sent one of the new Milton & Millie Christmas images to use for this weeks challenge.  I loved my image and can't wait to get my hands on these gorgeous stamps.

How adorable is little Milton here with his stocking?! You can't see it here, but the fur trim has be covered with Glamour Dust.  This is the first time I've used this and I'm not sure if I've used a tad too much!  The DP is from an old DCWV Christmas stack which I love as it's all traditional colours.  I've used my Fiskars snowflake border punch and my X-Cut snowflake punch for the required element.  The CS is from SU!

You can see the sparkle a lot more in this close-up.  I love how it looks and definitely think I will be using this a lot more in future.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday - Anything Goes
Pixie Dust Studio - Feathers or Fur
Moving Along with the Times - Christmas
Please check out the rest of my teamies amazing cards. 

I hope you will be joining us this week as I've missed seeing all your wonderful creations.

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

    a gorgeous festive card and I'm loving the Milton teddy bears - I have them on my shopping list for the big craft fair at Exeter later this week! I used a couple of Martha Stewart punches for my flowers and leaves and a Marianne die-cut for the centre of the flowers, hope that helps.
