First Christmas card of 2011

This is the first christmas card I have made this year, I think i'd better get a move on in making some more. I made this for the show and tell at my stamp club. The theme was chrismas in black and white and there was some stunning cards that people had made.
I have glittered his beard but the photo doesn't show it very well.
Oh! the snowflake is one of the Marianne design sets of dies layered on top of each other and the joy is cut with the slice elite.

Australian atc swap, Care bears.

Hiya, I have joined the facebook Australian atc swap again (wish I was there lol). The theme this month is Care bears. There isn't much about care bears here in the UK anymore, I still have two teddies from when I was younger, my 2 yr old daughter plays with them now :0). I googled care bear images and I got the bears to make these.

I made the care bear backgrounds with my master card builder and glittered round the edges.
7 of these are for the swap and 2 are spare, I couldn't decide which 7 to send so I got my mum to pick 2 numbers between 1 and 9 and I kept those lol.
My other daughter will be gutter cos she wanted the pink one and thats gone.
