Warm Winter Wishes

Wow - I didn't realize it has been so long since I posted!  I've been fighting bronchitis for about 3 weeks now, and I just can't get the cough to disappear!  But, I have had a chance to catch up on some long overdue projects and cards!  This is the card I just finished and once again I used one of  my favorite stamps from Lili of the Valley.  I've used these guys all season long and I'm not sick of them yet!  I colored him with my Copics and then cut him out using my deckled rectangles spellbinders, which can be found here at  I used some leftover paper from my stash for this one, sorry I'm not sure the name of it.  I do know the white snowflake piece is from Heidi Grace and it's flocked - I love it!  I don't know why, but this is another one of my favorite cards - maybe it's the image, maybe it's the colors, maybe it's the sketch (which is from Papertake Weekly) or maybe it's the snowflakes, I'm not sure but I do know I'm lovin it!


The snowflakes are from Michaels in the Christmas section and the Warm Winter Wishes and the sentiment on the inside are both digital stamps from Whimsy Stamps.  The white swirly ribbon is from Queen & Co. Here's another angle of the card:

And a close-up of James the Bear:

I love decorating the inside of my cards, so here's the inside of this one:

And a close-up of each half of the inside:
