Even More Polar Bear Cuteness....!

Well, after staying up rather late last night finishing off Christmas cards for people I was supposed to be seeing today, with a very sore neck, the stupid snow has ruined my plans!!!  My family are unable to drive up to see Mark and I and go out for our yummy early Christmas lunch down at the local restaurant!  I am SO disappointed! :o(!  Never mind.  I just hope it doesn't happen next weekend when we are due to go down South, otherwise, Christmas will officially be ruined for us!  At least we have each other.  But for me Christmas is about spending time with all of those you love.

Anyway, here are the 2 cards I made last night.  They will have to wait to be given to the recipients on Christmas Day!

Can't wait to make some more later on!! Will cheer me up.

Thanks for popping over and please leave a comment as I love reading them! :o)

Polar Bear Cuteness!

Hi everyone,

I am so pleased with my latest Christmas card that I have made using Prairie Fairy Designs - A Mother's Love!!
I have bought quite a few images from the store, and they are just so wonderful to work with. 

I have used Stamp 'n' Bond with White Flock on the Polar Bears, so they are lovely and fluffy! I have also added Glitter Glue to the snow which I shadowed with my Arctic Blue Pro Marker.  It's much more sparkley than in the picture!

I also used my Promarkers to shadow the fur with grey, and to give Mummy and Baby Bear rosie cheeks, I used my Blush Promarker. White Sukura pen is on the noses and paw to make them look shiny.  I now wish I had added Glossy Accent too, but I've given the card to the recepients now! I'll do it on the next one for Marks family.

As I haven't used my Hot Foil Print Wizzard for a while, I decided to get that out and personalise the cards.  I think it makes the card even more special.

Thanks for looking, and i'd love to hear what you think of my card.

Merry Christmas!
