James and snowman

 Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with an adorable James Bear image from LOTV.  I’ve seen mint green used on Christmas cards recently and thought it would look good teamed with red.   I had to make a second sentiment tag – the first time I put the dots over the O – and when I checked out some words for the inside of the card I realised the dots should have been over the E.   Although we have lived in France for 8 years – my French is very limited and I rely on the Internet when I am writing a card for a French friend.


What I used –

LOTV stamp – James – snowman – coloured with Promarkers.

Papers from Nitwits and my stash

Large snowflake – Joy Crafts die       Small snowflakes – cut with punches

Ribbon, bells and gems from my stash       Computer generated sentiment
