Teddy with Robin

Morning all.
Have you made all your Christmas cards yet? I think I'm on the home stretch but if you aren't, perhaps we can give you some inspiration with the new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would like to see your projects that contain -


Trees, sprang immediately to mind but I'd made one of those a couple of weeks back so this time I dug out my LOTV stamp, Teddy with Robin. Here is my card.

Isn't he just the cutest, and he begins with a T!
The background DP is from NitWits edged in Festive Berries DI and some strips of ribbon from Lidl. You can get some interesting crafty items there if you have a rummage in the baskets and the price is always good.
I used the layout at Sketch Saturday and hand wrote the sentiment, because I've lost the tiny sentiment stamp from my Woodware set :( . That's the problem when you don't have stamps out for a goodly period, you don't realise until it's too late, probably sucked up the hoover!
Anyway, Teddy was coloured with Copics and the snow was added with some white Cosmic Shimmer glue and Sprinkled Sugar Stickles. I made a background for the sentiment disc by using a snowflake from my stash and another coloured green and cut up to look like evergreen foliage!

So for more 'T' inspiration pop along to the Cardz4Guyz blog and have a go!

I'd like to join in over at -
