Beary Merry Christmas

Recently I was lucky enough to win a voucher from Stamp Fairy. Of course, the hardest part was deciding which images I loved the most but little Barry here stood out and said "pick me pick me!". 
Okay, so digital images can't talk, I know that. 
It was actually my trusted and life long friend, Ted E. Bear, who suggested I get these. 
No! no-one else heard him - he only whispers to me. 
I am entering this card in the following challenges: 
Fairy Tale Challenge #54 Embossing
Polka Doodle #46 Square Card with a Round Element
Raise the Bar #120 Bears
Fab n' Funky #147 Lets See Those Bears

Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes

This week over at Sweet Stampin' our challenge to you is -  Anything Goes. We are sponsored by Stamp Fairy who have very generously given the DT some images to play with  - as well as Quixotic Paperie and our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen. This little Molly usually has Autumn leaves floating around her -  but without them, I thought that she was perfect to give a great big hug. 

I could not believe that on the week that I desperately needed our printer - that it threw its little toner in the air, clogged up its rollers and refused to respond to repeated pressings of the start button. 
What a temperamental little miss she is! 

All I needed to do was to print out a few Molly images and then three more images on different patterned paper and I was confronted by a sign taped to the front of the printer saying 
"Do not use - not working". 

I went directly to my partner cause he is the all round Mr. Fix-it in our house - only to discover that it was he that put up the sign. What the! Can't you just fix it!  I know that sounds a touch irrational ... but I had a card to make!!! 
Anyway, five days later and my printer is now purring happily beside me. Don't worry, I am keeping my eye on her just in case she has another tantrum.
Pop on over to Sweet Stampin' and join in.
