Christmas Card Club "Christmas Teddy"

Good morning all.
We had a fabulous day on Thursday at my niece's wedding...the rain stayed away and the sun shone all afternoon. The bride was radiant as was her Mum, my younger sister. The weekend has been spent doing laundry, cleaning and shopping in preparation to going away on Tuesday.

My test results have come back negative for coeliac disease thankfully but hopefully by maintaining a gluten free diet my ailments will abate and I may be able to get my weight under control again!

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Sue P's turn to choose the theme this time and she's asked us for a "Christmas Teddy". 

Decoupage card kit from Create and Craft and part of a package my Mum gave me for Christmas.
I've added some punch waste snowflakes and gems to finish the card.

You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
