Wizards, bears and christmas all in one day

Hi everyone

Firstly can I thank all my lovely followers for their fab comments and welcome any new ones.  I am still new to this and really appreciate all your lovely comments.

I have had a crafty few days, but have only just managed to get round to photographing them so here they are:

Forever Friends Christmas Bear

I love these cute bears and this one is stamped and then coloured with promarkers and glittered with Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue.  Then mounted onto Papermania Glitter Card.  The backing paper is forever friends and the embossed strip was done using my cuttlebug.  To finish I added a FF sticker sentiment and three card candies which I then finished with glossy accents.  Quick and simple but quite effective.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Teddy Bea - this is the first Teddy Bea image I have used and I am thrilled with the results.  I have always admired them and have finally taken the plunge.  I think she looks gorgeous in pinks and lavenders.

Bea was of course coloured with promarkers and then matted and layered using pink papermania cardstock and a candy stripe pink paper from Craft Creations.  The other two ink papers were from the First Edition Sweet Owl collection.  I made the double bow using ribbons from my stash.  The LOTV sentiment was stamped and then coloured with promarkers, the circles were then cut on the cuttlebug using nesties and layered.  Anitas gems were used to finish this off.  The final touch a few co-ordinating card candies.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

and last but not least a child's birthday card.

Wizard  This little chap is an LOTV stamp.. I love this one.  What do you think??????

The outside

The inside
Purple cardstock used as a base, then spider web orange ribbon, black and white dotty papermania paper, which I coloured orange.  LOTV image coloured with promarkers, cut using X-cut dies, layered onto papermania glitter card.  The word "Wizard was cut using the Cricut.    The inside was stamped again with the LOTV image and a happy birthday sentiment.
