Christmas Teddy for CCC!

Hello to You All, I hope you are fine and well on this Sunday morning.
I would like to welcome Meg who is my latest follower, so pleased you decided to join my ever growing band of followers, I hope you pop in often and like what I do.
I reached the grand number of 80 followers, I think it's just amazing that folk want to join and make lovely comments, and more importantly want to visit again.  So thanks to everyone.

This is my first card for the CCC, and it's a card showing a Teddy, here is mine;
I think this image from LOTV is so sweet, It's one of there Toppers that I've had for a couple of years.
LOTV Papers
Red Core'dinations
Die'sire Holly Dies
Papermania Christmas Ribbon and Gems
Star Dust Stickles

Well we have rain today, but we managed a walk along the front at Nairn, before the wet stuff started to fall, than a spot of lunch at a lovely tea room and a look around The Farmer's Market.  There was two ladies spinning yarn that I stopped to watch, fascinated by the process, and one lady was spinning yarn from her own sheep, I think it would be wonderful to know the provenance of your knitted garment.  However I can neither afford of have the space to start up another hobby.

This post will be scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, where you will see the other members of the very friendly CCC's creations, which I hope you will visit, and maybe even want to join us to get ahead with your Christmas card making.
Have a super weekend whatever your doing,
I would like to enter my card into;

Like you, I would have found the spinning delightful to watch...but like you, I do not have the room. My craft room is stuffed to the rafters with stash...stash I am trying hard to use up...so I can replace that space with dies..my new found addition...teehee

Pretty card! i always love their toppers...
You have done it up so nicely. The ivey sprays look great and love the pretty ribbon too!

Hi Kate what a lovely card. Love the topper and pretty holly leaves! I bet it was fascinating watching the spinning and I bet it is quite a relaxing hobby although I would probably get everything in a twist! Susan x

Hi Kate thanks for the warm welcome, Today's card is lovely traditional Christmas colours are a favourite and the addition of the holly perfect. Sounds like a great day yesterday,it's been quite q while since I visited Inverness, although My mothers family lived there for many years, but my son lives in Aberdeen so we tend to go there now, I do prefer the drive to Inverness it's more scenic.

I have had a problem with blogger this morning. I left a post within a couple of minutes of your post going live but then it disappeared, as happened with all the other comments. I had to get John on the case and now am re-visiting everybody. Love the LOTV image and your choice of papers and embellishments. Hugs Christine xx

Hi Kate

Such a cute Christmas card, would take pride of place on my mantle. Thank you for your lovely words about my son leaving home, but he is 29, and how many mum's are lucky enough to have their loved ones at home for so long, I have been really lucky, I know. Have counted my blessings every day.

Kind regards :-)
