Cute Christmas - Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and the theme for this month is 'Cute Christmas'.
This was a great theme for me this month because I was able to use another of those stamps which has been 'curing' and hadn't seen any ink yet.  The image is from Lili of the Valley and this is James Bear Wrapped in Tinsel.  I have always liked LOTV images and James Bear is one of my favorites.  
To enter the challenge, you can interpret it however you want but your project must follow the 'Cute Christmas'theme. 

Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the gals on the team have created and here's a great chance to get a head start on your holiday cards for this year. 
Thanks for stopping by!
Copics:
Bear - E37, E35, E33, E31.  I used a loopy cloth dipped in Copic Blender solution and dabbed the bear to give him a little texture and hopefully furry look
Supplies:
Image -   Lili of the Valley James Bear Wrapped in Tinsel
Sentiment - Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings
Misc - Stickles, Frantage, Copic Multiline for doodling
Challenges:
Darnell's NBUS (Never before used schtuff)- mine is the image stamp and sentiment
ABC Christmas - Embossing, wet or dry (mine is the Frantage)

You've made a fab job of this little bear Marilyn... I love how you've given him texture! He looks great on his CAS card - the frantage just adds the perfect finishing touch!

Big hugs

I LOVE THIS LITTLE TEDDY BEAR!!! He is adorable and you've colored him beautifully--think I'll copy how you colored him in the future on my teddies. I find animals impossible to color and this one is so perfect! So you doodle, huh? I can't manage that and yours looks great. I love this card, but then again, I adore CUTE Christmas cards!! Fabulous card. Hugs, Gail
