"Christmas Sunday" - and Happy Mother's Day!!!

Continuing my tradition of posting Christmas cards on Sunday, here you go!  I'm entering this for the Christmas Card Challenge blog. Since I pre-post my cards and the Christmas Challenge is posted on Sundays, also, I don't have the opportunity to do the specialized challenge. However, the main challenge is to just make a Christmas card. Edited to add: My card this week fits the challenge theme which is to use an "old, neglected stamp." I've had this stamp set for a long time and haven't used it in years. Plus, I was the random winner from last week! I win a Sparkle stamp. Very cool! Thanks!!

I saw a card in the SplitCoastStampers gallery using this set by Stampin' Up! and it reminded me to use it. I stamped the bears on a sparkly cardstock and cut them out. I colored their scarves, then I mounted the bears on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on the sparkly paper, also. I matted with Pacific Point and also added the strip, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. (I think you can see the sparkle better on this picture.)

Also, Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very, very cute. I've always loved those bears!

And the sparkle is visible in the 2nd picture. Must be really something in real life!

That's lovely, Lynette. With all the Christmas cards you're making so early, you'll be completely stocked up in time for Christmas, with no last-minute panics!

Thanks for your comment on my blog, and so glad you like our little babies! They are really happy bunnies now they are all fluffy and fragrant again, and in their summer clothes!
