Stamp Something "Animal Somethings"

Good afternoon everyone.

The challenge this week at Stamp Something is "Animal Somethings". It just happens that yesterday the postman delivered a lovely set of SU! Polar Bear stamps that I bought from ebay and, of course, I had to colour them up immediately, so I was all set for the challenge.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Card base: printed from Bearly Mine Designs Creative Fusion Christmas dvd's (there are so many backing papers on these discs but I am loving the snowflakes!)
Mirri card: Craft Planet
Image: from Stampin Up! Polar Bear set (I think this image is so cute)
Coloured with: Copic Ciaos
Tools: Label and Scalloped Rectangle nestabilities, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, Fiskars Threading Water border punch, Sakura white pen
Accessories: Snowflake brad (Papermania I think), Kanban gems

I'm really getting ahead with my Christmas cards this year and that is a first for me!

I hope you are all having a fab weekend and, if you are in the UK, make the most of your Bank Holiday.

This morning we went to Toys 'R' Us and treated our boy to a new toy, there was only one thing in the whole store that he wanted (strange kid!), so he is now the owner of a Black and Decker workbench which he loves. Hopefully it will keep him busy for a while!!

Love your polar bears Clare. You put me to shame being so organised with your Christmas cards. I am a week before kind of person!!! Must try harder.
I had to smile at your little boy's workbench. They are so funny with what takes their eye aren't they, still if it's a sign of things to come you'll be ok in the DIY department in years to come!!!
Hope you are enjoying the bank holiday.

Super cute Clare! This image makes me chuckle because it could be me and one of my little ones. You would think I was a human ladder. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stamp Something Challenge Blog.
