The Birdhouse Bear

Hello, and thank you so much for your visit! Hope you've had a lovely weekend.
Before I go on and tell you about todays card, I wanted to make mention about my brother Richard who, some of you will have read here, has been undergoing treatment for Cancer in his Oesophagus. Anyway, his chemo and radiotherapy both appear to have gone really well and he will be going back into hospital on the 11th for surgery to remove this organ completely and replace it with a "spare" section of his intestine. Although they anticipate he will be in ICU straight after the op, his consultant is confident that he should be home for Christmas. So once again, if I can call upon my lovely friends here for your prayers and positive thoughts, it will mean an awful lot....thank you xx
Right then, back to my little card for today, and way back in the summer I was lucky enough to win a challenge and my prize was digi stamps from Hobby Book, well one of my choices was the adorable Birdhouse Bear.... 
I have coloured this with promarkers and just a little dollop of frosted lace stickles. The paper is a magazine freebie download that I tweaked the colour tone to suit. The dies are Memory Box Fremont Crest, and the wee holly die too. I coloured the white pearls with a promarker to match. Button and ribbon from stash.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
my time to craft - cute and cuddly Christmas
stampin for the weekend - use some red
natalie and amy - cute and cuddly Christmas

off to bed soon, so that's all for me for tonight, I will be back tomorrow with a new Cutie Pie challenge card!
