Herbie's Holiday Cheer PSC48

Happy Wednesday my friends.  It's been a great week so far since I've been on vacation.  Drat that I have to finally go back to work, but it sure was nice having the long weekend.  Got tons done around my house and I was able to work on a couple cards including this one for today's PSC challenge.

This week's theme is another easy one - The season or occasion of your choice!  The twist is to use a critter of some sort on your card - It can be a teddy bear, mouse, frog, elephant, spider, whatever you want.  Just remember to put your sentiment on the front of your card.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Designs and the prize for the winner of this week's challenge is 3 digital images!  Fabulous!
Now, to get to my card.  I actually used a digi image from Crafty Sentiments Designs for my card.  So cute.
This is Herbie Bear from Crafty Sentiments Designs

Materials Used:
  • Sentiment - Just Rite Stamps - Noel Christmas Ornaments
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler; SU Whisper White
  • D/P - Deja Views - Fair Isle Christmas collection
  • Nestabilties - Not  sure which Label No. this one is for the image.  Sorry
  • Sentiment Label - from Verve Stamps
  • Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, Red Hybrid Tea Roses; 1/2" Tea Roses; Prima roses
  • Copic Markers - B0000, B02; E40, E41, E43, E44, E47; G28, R39; BV29
Got that middle square a little cockeyed.  It sure looked straight when I put it on there.  ;)

I've actually been working on a few Christmas cards lately.  I need to catch up on my Christmas Card Challenge.  I'm behind 2 for August and need to start on September.
