Holiday Card 2 - B for Bauble and Bear

Hi, everyone!  I'm back again today with another holiday card.  Inspiration for my holiday cards has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards ChallengeDay 2 is "B" and I went with Bauble and Bear.  (For an update on my husband's health, please see my previous post here.)


The adorable bear image is a freebie from Beccy's Place called Stanley's Bauble.  I used the pre-coloured version, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape. I used a die-cut doily from my stash and patterned papers from Basic Grey Aspen Frost 6x6" paper pad.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp Holiday Mice.

I would also like to support the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies AG Animals 2/5; A Gem of a Challenge AG 1/3; Cardz TV 73 AG 2/3; Crafting by Designs November AG 2/3; Crafts Galore Encore AG 2/3; Crafty Creations AG 2/2; Crafty Friends Use 2 or more Patterned Papers 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use a Button UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Creative Craft Cottage Christmas is Coming 2/3; Die-Cut Divas AG 2/4; Double Trouble Thing 1 Christmas Holiday, Thing 3 Hanging Item (Ornament) 1/4; Happy Little Stampers AG w Dies UE; Incy Wincy Christmas 2/5; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 2/3; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 2/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 2/3; The Cat's Pajamas Winter Holidays UE; The House that Stamps Built Repeat Impressions DCC117 ~ Bear Hugs 1/3; Through the Craft Room Door AG 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5 wk1; Your Scrapbook Place AG 2/3
