James the Bear in Pink!!

Morning Folks!
Thanks for visiting today, can you believe we are halfway through November and rushing towards Christmas at an alarming rate... not going to panic....not going to panic...arrgghh!!

OK, I'm back now to show you my midway reminder for the challenge over at Ready Teddy Go which is 


I've made this gift bag for a special little friend of mine, you can probably tell pink is her favourite colour!! This is another kraft gift bag from Hobbycraft, one of my best buys this year!! You can see my House Mouse one here. Not much to say about this, I think the pictures say it all!!

I've used a combination of nesties, Memory box and Cuttlebug dies, glitter papers plus lots of stickles and gems so this is quite sparkly!

My favourite James the bear stamp from LOTV, coloured with promarkers and blinged up with stickles and glamour dust:

Heat embossed sentiment from Stampin Up and cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for background:

Hope you can join us at Ready Teddy Go to show off your teddies and embossing, we have a fab prize from Di's Digi Stamps for the lucky winner!!
