My last card I did with lots of color so be forewarned. I was feeling a little daring and thought it would be great to mix prints and colors. This week at Crafty Creations, Purple Panda Designs offered the design team really cute teddy bear images to work with. The designer of PPD is Kayla, a 16 year old with lots of ambition! You can find her amazing artwork here. I chose this one because it reminds me of Garfield's Pooky with a mix of Alfa from Little Rascals. :-) You should see the rest of the design team's designs. Go here to view.
So I decided to print my little fella on red and pink polka dot paper and cardstock and paper piece. I used Creative Imaginations papers mixed with some cardstock pieces I had in my spare draw (again) and then stitched around the edges for some texture. I added an orange bow for because everything looks better with a bow right? He's all wrapped up and ready to go.

I almost forgot my advent swap pix!
#6 is a clever box indeed! It comes from Marcia.
This was inside Marcia's box:
Number 7 is gorgeous with it's silver and gold details! Kelly made this beauty with a resin pin as the gift inside.
The fabulous #8 came from Jan and she altered the tiny puzzle piece for the inside. It will make a great pendant on a necklace.
#9 is from Pam at with these two cute ornaments (which my daughter thinks are the sooooooooo cute!) and a really cool bead at the bottom.
and that's it. Yep, I am done for the night. I so need to get caught up on my house and decorating. Take care!
