one of the latest release's and this one is titled 'Honeybear Stuffies', just adorable.

Not bad for a first try, really pleased with it.

My prize was just gorgeous, so generous from

I have used the green polka dot ribbon for this card.

I have used Kraft card blank, red cardstock, fuse sleeve, flower charm, heart & gold sequins.
Coloured with Promarkers and some Glossy Accents for the honey.

everything AND A HAPPY always

Today I have a Stamping Bella image to share, I treated myself with several others
which will no doubt be making a appearance sometime soon here on my blog.

This one is titled 'Merry Everything' and seeing as it is a snow globe I have made a shaker
card with it, couldn't resist.  The sentiment is included & heat embossed in Silver.
If you look carefully you will spot that I have stamp & cut an extra penguin so he moves
around in the snow!

I have used Kraft card blank, flowers, berries, sparkle pin, bark heart, doily, button, ribbon & branches.  The snow is a mix of Flower Soft & Diamond Dust.  Coloured with Promarkers.

The paper is from NITWIT COLLECTIONS
