James Bear (and a very large cracker)!!!!!

Good evening

Popped out today and managed a little bit of Christmas shopping, is it me or are all the gifts the same now, year after year or does it just mean I am getting old LOL!!!

I have faffed about for what seems like forever with this card and I am all faffed out now.

I have used James Bear from LOTV and he has a very big cracker which I think must be to pull with Jenny Bear, oh he is a bit saucy.

He is coloured with promarkers and I have part coloured and part paper pieced the cracker. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they have been chalked and stickled up. I found a little bit of twizzle lurking around so I added that to the white ribbon. I also used up my little bit of frayed ribbon which I have nearly thrown away a few times cause I didn't think I would ever use it but it is the perfect colour match for this card. I also used cosmic shimmer for the star on the cracker and twinklets for the hat.

I would like to enter for 2 challenges:

LOTV - Anything Goes

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Thanks for poppin in, I am off to do the LOTV bloghop now.
