Evening Folks!
Hope everyone is well??
This is going to be a super quick post from me, I started this card before we went away for a few days and I have just about managed to get it finished this afternoon. I was determined to enter the "Anything goes with twine challenge" over at House Mouse and Friends which finishes tonight!!

 The stamp is called 'Beary Fast sledge'
Here's a closer look, love the expression on the bears face, is he having fun or really terrified?? As usual he is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. Must be Christmas coming, I've broken out the glamour dust, glitter pens and stickles!!!

The papers are a mixture of Dovecraft and Forever Friends, the die cut is by memory box and the charm, twine and gems are all from my stash. Off to cook tea and watch strictly... thanks for looking!! 

Back again... I'd like to enter the following challenges:
