Christmas in July! There's plenty of challenges out there in blogland getting ready for christmas and since it's been a while, i made this card using the fab sketch from Create 4 Fun #27, a Daisy & Dandelion stamp freebie from a mag and wanted to enter into Just Cute Bears challenge, after I'd made all the requirements for it I realised it's got patches on it, can't be a bear (maybe it's a doggie), i tried to look up to see what character it is on the DoCrafts site but couldn't find it. It's hat was decoupaged as well as his paws... Oh well nothing's lost and it'll go for the Winter Wonderland Punch it out (x cut snowflakes), Bah Humbug Less is more,Creative Card Crew is Die Cuts (strip running along middle is from Baby Face Cuttlebug Die, ABC Christmas N for Noel, Cards For Men Christmas, a couple of new challenges to me Fussy and Fancy challenge and www.flourishes.org/blog. Papers are freebies Milly Designs from Crafts Beautiful site.

Must admit I was a bit confused whether it was a bear or dog when these characters were first released. He is really sweet regardless.
