Christmas cards - something beginning with 'S'

Another great theme over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge this week - make a card and use something beginning with 'S'. I ended up making two really easy-peasy cards for the box using snow, snowflakes, sparkle, skis and skates :) Oh, and scarves!
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blanks

- backing card by SU, 'Marina Mist' and 'Wisteria Wonder' - chosen to pick up a colour in the topper images

- another layer of card, off-white with a little snowflake pattern

- sparkly decoupage teddy bear images from the same sheet by Kanban called 'Winter Wooly (sic) Bears', layered up using thin sticky pads just snipped down to size where necessary

- the sentiments also came with the Kanban sheet

I was lucky enough to win a prize from Foilplay over at Hazel's challenge the other week - and this sheet was in amongst the real variety of topper sheets they sent to me. Thanks again Hazel!

And of course this is also an entry into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for August, where it's always 'Anything Goes'.

Super cute most definitely! Sweet bears too?! Okay Miss I got my masking fluid from my local stationers shop, they also have a small area for art and craft supplies. However I wouldn't purchase from them again as I've now realised that must have had in on their shelf for a while. Got to get DH to give it a good shake for me to see if that helps.

Hobbycraft sell it too and Pullingers do - copy and paste link below:

Di, these are just adorable! I'm so ready for winter since we've been having 103 (and higher) temps around here. I need cold weather and these fit the bill! Precious and pretty.
Thank you so very much for your thoughts and prayers for Jim and I. You'll never know how much they meant to me.
