Bear with me! Naughty Mr Blogger

We are on Letter B at ABC Christmas Challenge this time But I have sad News from ABC Challenge this week our lovely Delphine is having to leave us she is Snowed under at the moment... and need to step out for a while. I will / we will really miss her she is such a lovely buddy But I know she will stay in touch and hopefully be coming to visit us and do the odd guest spot and you never know if I twist her arm LOTS 
she will maybe one day be back full time! I CAN HOPE RIGHT! I'll Keep Bugging her! Promise! 
:0) Miss you hunny! but will be visiting you Often! tehhehe :0)

Also a quick note Blogger keeps changing my links so once this has posted! 
I am checking all the links work ok!
so please Bear... (Bare haha! sorry could not resist!) with me!

Sooo then ABC Christmas Challenge 
Our Lovely Host this time is Dorte and she has chosen this lovely theme.
Bears and any of the following; Bunting, Banners. Brads, Buttons, Bows & Blooms Challenge.

We have 2 Fabulous Sponsors and they are: 
Our very own Lacey with Stamp and create
and Bugaboo

The image I am using is Polar Bear from Bugaboo and guess what Helen and my cards are on the Bugaboo blog too! tehehhehee :0)
I am not sure if you can see from my photo I have a white card and then I cut my die cut shape from the blue paper, both stamped with snowflake stamps and distress inks…. The buntings are glued behind the die cut aperture.. and the blue paper part is raised… with the Polar bear on the front, I have shaded him and his nose and pads of his feet also have glossy accents on.
The ribbon and jute bow is a 4 layer bow, and I have used a white gelly roll on the card candy, and a good lashings of stickles. 
I would not normally use the colours I have used together but who could resist this inspirational photo from Cupcake Inspirations
YES it has pink!!!!!!!! 
So here are the challenges I am playing with this card:
Happy Wednesday friends
