A Christmas Bear - MIM #104

Yeah!!!  it's Monday and that means the start of a new linky party over at Make It Monday. What fab entries from last week.
Congrats to Katherine for being the featured artist this week and also to Sandra  for being the winning commenter.
We are being sponsored by Cupcake, Cards & Crafts this week and you can see below what they are offering our winner. I popped over to the site and had a look at the lovely downloadable papers etc and decided to use one of their images.
Here is my card using one of the sponsors digital images from a cardmaking kit called Beary Merry Christmas and you can find it here
The digital images are pre-coloured so all I had to do was print it off and  put it through my bug with a die.

SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the top fold basecard
DP's are from SU Jolly Holiday Designer Series

Recycled twine from a shoe tag
Christmas tree charm from stash - one of my e-bay finds!!!
Sentiment is from SU Petite Pairs

If you didn't catch last night's post please stop by for a look.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - challenge 53 ~ Animals or Teddies
Craft Your Days Away - challenge #52 ~ Farewell challenge - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Challenge #128 ~ Use a digi
Diva's By Design - Challenge 49 ~ Anything Goes

Mandy is generously offering our winner a digi paper collection of their choice.
Wow, how awesome is that?

My POTW is this wonderful card from Holly over at  Glitter, Stamps and Ink (Oh My)
I love the soft, subtle colours, the diecuts and that super cute image!!! It still gives the impression of a CAS card too even though it has several different layers and elements on it.

Okay, now I want you to get your mojo going and start creating and linking up to MIM #104. Looking forward to seeing what you all make.
Please stop by all the DT blogs to see if you've been featured as their POTW. I usually post on your blog if I have featured you but sometimes not sure if the comment is read. 

Thanks for stopping by
Take Care.
