Penny Black Teddy Santa Christmas card

Hi blogging friendsFree Smiley Courtesy of

My craft room has been a hive of activity with my Christmas card making.  I do love making Christmas cards - there is just something so special about the whole process of choosing the papers, stamps and ribbon etc - it just seems to make me feel so happy inside going through my stash.  So onto my card......

The cute little Penny Black teddy was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with Faber-Castell plus Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Here is a closer view of the teddy:

I added some Fun Flock mixed with Crystalina glitter to the hat using Designer Dries Clear adhesive - and added Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the present.  Here is a wee close-up of the flocking - don't you just want to reach through your computer screen and have a feel of how soft it is LOL!!

The ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.

Did you notice the three green Sparklets in the top RH corner?  Oh my gosh - I love them so much!!

They are a newly released item by Kaisercraft and come in lots of different colours and 2 different sizes in the pack and are self-adhesive like rhinestones and pearls.   The larger ones are 15mm or 9/16" in diameter and the smaller ones are 8mm or 5/16".  Here is a picture so you know what I am talking about -

The designer paper is also by Kaisercraft - Be Merry which was released last year.


I am entering my card in the following challenge -

Problems with leaving comments on other Blogger's blogs

Not sure if it is just my computer, but I have had alot of trouble in the past month getting onto Blogger blogs including my own.  It takes absolutely forever for them to load and most times, I am not able to bring up the blog - it times out.  And then I might try a few minutes later and all is OK.  I have also had a very difficult time leaving comments on other blogs, particularly when it is an embedded comment form ie: loads within the blog - not a separate window or page.  I keep getting an error message saying something about "not having permission".  So I have been visiting you my lovely followers but often not able to let you know I have been! And it is very frustrating when you leave a lovely comment here but I am not able to reciprocate!!  It is driving me crazy - and is such a great timewaster! I am waiting on an answer from Google Help, but haven't had anything that has helped so far Free Smiley Courtesy of

That's about it for me!  I have finished a couple of other Christmas cards and will share them very soon.  Thanks for stopping by and thank you for any comments you care to leave - I really appreciate them Free Smiley Courtesy of

This is one very pretty Christmas card Jocelyn. Whilst I love Christmas cards in more modern colours, those in the traditional ones always please.

I am not haveing problem with commenting, but I am finding that on some blogs the photos are not visible and just show a tiny red cross.

Thank you for sharing with us at Penny Black and More this month and good luck in the draws for all the prizes on offer.
