Holiday Polar Bear card - Joys of Season

I didn't have very much time to craft today so I just quickly put together a card.  It probably only took me 10 minutes!!  I know I used the same punches and stamp for my sentiment as yesterday but it was still out and just too convenient not to use them again!  But at least I am getting my cards done!  Baby will here soon and I just can't put them off any longer!

Tonight I'm going to a crop!  Maybe I can get some more done, but I tend to do more talking than working!  Did I mention there will be snacks!!!  Hello, how much work can be done with food in the room!

Thanksgiving night I went to Michael's and picked up a couple of paper packs!  I really did NEED them because in making my Christmas cards I realized that in all the paper that I have (and I have a lot!)  I didn't have very much Christmas packs.  So I bought two!  Yes, only two!  I get points for showing such control!!!  I used one pack yesterday and one today!  They have some really cute paper in them.

Anyway, Here's what I quickly came up with:

Polar Bear was cut at 2 1/2" from Joys of Season Cartridge.

Card Base: SU  Real Red 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front: My Mind's Eye "Countdown to Christmas" pack 4" X 5 1/4"   
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Black,
Ink: SU Real Red
Stamps:  SU Warmest Regards
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & embossing folder, Real Red ribbon, Black marker for eye, Cricut & Joys of Season Cartridge, SU punches, Pom Pon for tail

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!

Have a great crafting day!
