A little James

Hello Everyone, 
I had no builders in the house today, so after a morning helping out at school I decided to have a little play with one of my favourite Lili of the Valley stamps. This is an old 'James' stamp and has been retired but it was so good to make a card 'just for fun!'

I've coloured him with promarkers, and the background papers are Snow Princess from Lili of the Valley. I've used a Dee's tree die and a Crafters Companion snowflake die.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Winter Wonderland - Have a Beary Christmas
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Christmas in July
Stamping Sensations - Feature a Creature
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra - Anything Christmas

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your comments and encouragement. I'm hoping to catch up with you all very soon.

A gorgeous card Lorraine as always...... loving James the bear of course, and your wonderful colouring.... and wow... that floral oval looks so good in the mirri card (which I haven't used for ages but must now dig it out!)

Isn't it good to make a 'just for fun' card occasionally!!
