Teddy Bo Sparkles...

Hi everyone, been out all day Christmas shopping however have only bought our christmas pressies to each other.... Ooooppppsss.
Back in July we went up the Dogs Trust to see if there were any little dogs which may be suitable to be company for our bundle of trouble but nothing.  Got home today to find a message on the answerphone from the dogs trust saying that they may have a suitable dog.... Oh dear.... they dont open till midday tomorrow and I am trying not to get my hopes up as it may be one that they are struggling to home????? On the other hand.................  Hubby not very happy as he had persuaded me to wait until next year but he is a softy really and would have a house full if they were right!!!  lol...

Onto todays card and this was made with another Teddy Bo image, this time Teddy Bea 116.
I just can't get enough of these bears at the moment!!
I coloured her with copics and stickled up her wings and wand.
The swirl is a Marianne die and the snowflakes are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I cant remember who the sentiment is by as it was in my little box of sentiments that I stamped up ages ago on some offcuts of card!

Little Drummer boy...

The challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil is inspired by a song.  As soon as I saw this I thought of this image and 'Little Drummer Boy'.  Then I scrolled down and saw that one of the DT members, Pat had already used it and done an amazing card.  So I ummed and ahhhed and thought that perhaps she wouldnt mind if I used the same song and the same image as my card was never going to be as good as hers.  So I hope I was right........
I coloured the image with copics and stitched the background as the paper seemed to lend itself to that (been in my stash for ages and not known what to do with it!!! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I took the centres out, used distress ink on them and added some brads...
The swirl is a Marianne die and the sentiment is from Lili of the valley.
