James Bear - Sledging along

Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you're all having a good weekend. I went to the Papercraft Show at Harrogate yesterday, spent a small fortune, came home very tired but had a lovely day! I even managed to make a card this morning, first one for a few days!!
This is a Lili of the Valley stamp called, James Bear, Sledging Along. Sorry for the poor photo. I would blame the camera, but lets face it, it's the operator that's not too good!! lol.
I've coloured him with my promarkers and the background papers are from one of the new pads at LOTV.
The snowflake die is from Marianne Creatables and the corner die (bought yesterday) is Memory Box. I blame Lisa (Wishcraft) for this one, every time I visit her blog I find something else to add to my wishlist!! (sorry Lisa!)Her cards are gorgeous! I also used a the Frostyville border die by Memory Box.

I'd like to enter the following challenges
Lillies Little Fairies - Christmas for the Boys
Passion for Promarkers - For a Man/Youth
Make it Monday - Linky Party
Incy Wincy Designs - Bears, Bears, Bears

Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments. I really appreciate them
I'm taking the children for their swimming lesson now so have a good Sunday and I'll be round to visit you later!

Gorgeous card Lorraine. Beautiful image, coloured perfectly and love your design and layout. The frostville border looks great in black (been trying to get that one for a couple of weeks).
Sounds as if you had a great time at Harrogate I had to resist going coz I knew I would by loads too and need my money for my hols.

I love this Lorraine. Not going to name what I love about this card cos I love it all. Frostyville border looks fab in black. I know what you mean about seeing things on Lisa's blog, I always see things I have to have after looking at her blog. Guess its going to happen when I look at your blog now as I have just ordered a joy crafts border die that you used a few posts back.
