James with presents

Today it is almost like summer again – it’s so nice to see the sun and I just hope it stays around for a while longer.

I’m posting a Christmas card, using James Bear from LOTV.   I love James Bear, especially the Christmas images.   I bought this stamp to use on a candle – but haven’t got round to doing that yet.   I played around with various papers and colours and finally settled on this arrangement.   It’s quite a while since I last put frantage on a card, as I don’t find it easy to use – but I tried again and put it round the circle and scattered it over the image.


What I used –

LOTV rubber stamp – James – Pile of Presents – coloured with Promarkers     Sentiment also from LOTV

Papers from Nitwits and Bugaboo

Ribbon and gems from my stash

Pine cone die from Britannia dies

Chunky white frantage     Glamour dust      Aleene’s Glitter Snow


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges –
