Baby Teddy and Friend

I think a few of us have been having trouble with our computers and/or Mr Blogger,
judging by various comments on blogs. Last Wednesday, 26/11/14, I posted a card
which had been in my 'drafts' since 14/11/14. However, try as I might, the post
 insisted on publishing showing that date, not that of last Wednesday 26/11/14. 

Please don't throw anything at me, but I am feeling rather pleased with myself....
thanks to quite a few very late nights, I have finished 40 of my 41 Christmas
cards (the last one is for my darling John), and also my long annual letters to
friends. I posted the overseas ones 10 days ago, and the Aussie ones last 
Thursday. Even I am in shock!!

This pair of cuties was such fun to colour, and because the card
is for a 5 year old child, I wanted it to be bright and cheerful.
Those 3 little bells actually jingle when the card is shaken, and the resin
snowman is a button with the shank cut off.

This image is one of the first digital stamps I ever bought (if not
the first).

The inside of my card matches the front. The gold snowflake is from
a long garland of Christmas tree decorations I bought about 10 years ago.

Image - Whimsy digital stamp Baby's First Christmas
Colouring - Promarkers
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Paper - Doodlebug

Bells, gold cord, gems, gold snowflake, snowman button are all from my junk stash
