Beary Christmas Jake:

Good morning all!  It's Friday and around her it's Christmas decorating weekend.  One of my favorite weekends of the year!!!  Wow, where did the year go?  How can it be December tomorrow??

In keeping with the spirit of things, I have a real cutie Christmas card to share with you.  I used one of my new favorites, Teddy Jake, and of course gave him a wonderful paper pieced scarf.

The sentiment is compliments of my husband, he thought I should put "Beary" instead of "Merry".  He was actually quite shocked when I agreed to it. :)
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, K&Co papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Gelly Roll white pen, Recollections gems, American Crafts jute, Creatology Jingle Bells.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Rectangle Nesties.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges - sketch (do not display), Crafty Cardmakers - inspiration photo (I used the colours),  Jingle Belles - anything, Charisma Cardz - no green/gold/red, Tammy's Scrapin Corner - let it snow, Christmas Card Challenges - paper piecing.



And meet StampFairy's newest member, Gingy is back!!

 Have a super wonderful weekend!
