Barry Bow:

Good morning all!  It's another lovely morning out there!

StampFairy is sponsoring Cute Card Thursday's Bling It Up challenge.

I took this opportunity to make another Christmas card using Barry Winter:

Barry is all snugged up in his scarf and hat (or in Canada - better known as a toque)
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, American Crafts Jolly papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils (fur/wood - Chocolate, Dark Brown, Dark Umber;  cheeks - Magenta, Crimson Red;  ears - Magenta, Crimson Red;  scarf/toque - Grass Green, Dark Green; bird/house - Crimson Red, Crimson Lake, Tuscan Red), Craft Smart Periwinkle Blue and Recollections Breeze chalk ink, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Prima flowers, Recollections brads, Studio G sparkle.  Tools:  sewing machine, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties.  

I made Barry for the following challenges:  Crafting for All Seasons - stitching, Crafty Creations - gems/twine, Challenge Up Your Life - Christmas, Addicted to Stamps - upcycle (ribbon from work), Try It On Tuesday - sketch (I did a bit of a flip):

Have a wonderful Thursday!  There is a nasty flu bug going on around here - stay healthy!

I love the 'candy cane stripe' twine and the poinsettia flowers that you added to your cute Christmas card. Super wonderful!
