Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #33

Love and joy come to you, And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year!

Sending all of you and your families my fondest wish for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Today's card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge is a wonderful design from Fred She Said. Tracey has the most awesome digital stamps. I just fall in love with everyone of them. I will have a couple more coming soon as I am still doing some Christmas cards. I invite you to stop by her store and take a look at all the wonderful images she has....you will be delighted!!!
Here is the inside of my card. I love the image so much, I repeated it many times on this card. You can't see in the photo, but I did glitter it a lot and used the frosted lace stickles for the candle drippings. I felt this image was very nostalgic so I used the Rangers tea dye ink for highlights on this card. Please check the sketch out at "Priscillastyles" and join us in this weeks challenge!

Hi Carol, I am just getting over here to
answer your question....I don't know of any
other bear blogs, but I have some new blog
friends that like them and decorate with a
few. I haven't really been collecting them
for about 3 yrs now, I have too many! I do
have a friend that bought a lot and might
be interested in selling them...I still
love them and have them all over the house! Check my Sept. posts, I think I posted the bear roomthen...Thanks for coming by & come back...Love your cards!!!
Have a Beary Merry Christmas!

Bear Hugs~Karen
