SFC114 Rollin' With The Blues

Hi everyone! Having a hard time getting back to work after the long weekend? I'm rarin' to go - I start my new job this morning and I'm excited about it.

This week's challenge on the Squigglefly blog is to make a card using greens and/or blues. I went with blues on my card and added to my Christmas card stash with this adorable Shy Bear called Ornament Bear by Lynne Stansbery.

I colored him with Copic markers and added some Snow Tex to his hat. I love the texture of that stuff! The sentiment is computer generated, and I added a punched and glittered snowflake at the top.

A lot of my crafting time this weekend was spent making Christmas cards. I really need to get busy on those! I'm usually a lot further along by now, but all of this job stuff has me behind.
I really want to see more entries in the Squigglefly challenge this week, so go make a blue or green card and enter for me!

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
