James Bear in the S-N-O-W.. & DT Call

a bit like the rest of us then.. ay? I know people say they love the snow, I AM one of those people, but sometimes, enough is enough? To be honest, I'm just sick of shovelling paths. LOL

Anyway, as some of you may know my order from LOTV arrived yesterday. Excited much! :) I just had to break out the stamps and make some cards with them. I have a couple more to show you aside from this one, but I will pace myself and post them at a later date.

Here is one I came up with in a slight hurry this morning. [I wanted it done before my expedition to try and make it round to the Post Office - for those interested, I made it there and back relatively safely, although I though I was going down more than once..]

How damn cute is James Bear?! WOW!! I am relatively new to LOTV stamp, and boy and I glad I stumbled across them. They are gorgeous designs.

I would like to enter this card into two challenges:
Paper Play Challenges - Week 48 - Monochrome
LOTV - Challenge 76 - A Few of My Favourite Things

For the Monochrome challenge, obviously the card is all black/grey/white, and as for a few of my fave things? Jeez.. where do I start?!
I had to get a bit of real and faux stitching on there, almost ALL of my cards feature stitching in some form. Then there is my rounded corner, I love my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, what a beauty of a tool. I love border punches, the Fiskars - Apron Lace features down the side of my card, as well as brads and pearls somewhere on there. Ribbon? Everyone loves ribbon right? One thing that is missing which I am loving using at the moment, is buttons!! But  hey, there are limits to how much you can decorate a card, LOL.

Well, thats all I got for ya right now. Might be back later with a few more cards, depends on how much time I got. Gotta sort out/organise uni stuff. I can't function if things aren't organised properly. So that is first on my list. Then I gotta catch up on Trimcraft and find something for tea. I'm dreading opening that freezer door. LOL.

Hope you are all well and the snow hasn't got you housebound!! xo

[Edit: I would like to enter this for the chance to win a DT place at Pear Tree Designs].
