Teddy lugging Christmas gifts

Sometimes I just can't think of a post title - today is one such example :( I made this card for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 166 where this week we have to use ribbon, twine, fibres etc. I chose ribbon - no surprise there then:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square card blank made using SU's 'Real Red' card stock

- the image is an upcycled whole front of a little Christmas card we were sent in 2013

- SU's 'Crumb Cake' card stock to back the image and also underneath the embossed backing

- embossed backing was made using SU's 'Square Latttice' embossing folder and SU 'Real Red' card stock

- ribbon from the ribbon box

- card candi in a couple of the corners

That makes two March Christmas cards done from my monthly target of 12 per month. Better up the game I think - batch baking is on the cards. Get it, on the cards?!

  10. I think maybe "teddy bearing gifts" may have been a little nicer? He does have a smile on his face!
    Don't fret though as teddy lugging gifts is gorgeous. Great recycling.

  16. OK, you had me on this one, til I read the post. I said "LOTV" when I saw the card. Then read it was recycled. Clever girl. It's lovely and cute and all those good words. Love the way you paired the pretty background with this sweet little Teddy & he's cute as a button (but no so cute as Parsnip. I don't want to hurt P's feelin's now. He's still the cutest) TFS & Hugs
