Office Bear

Evening everyone and a belated Happy New Year!
I'm a running a bit late today, just realised if you schedule a post it does need to be on the right day for it to publish.... sigh!

My card is part of the midway reminder for the challenge over at Ready Teddy Go where the theme is 


We have a great  prize on offer from Hobby House to tempt you!! Sadly this is going to be the last Ready Teddy challenge for a while but hopefully it may return!

I've used a Gruffies decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen teamed up with First Edition papers to make quite a CAS good luck card,  just love that big old bear snoring away!!

I'd also like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Oldie but a Goodie - New beginnings (all old stash that I have been hoarding!!)
Crafty Cardmakers - Bear with me

Yippee - 
I made the top 5 at Crafty Cardmakers and more:
