That's how many days are left until Christmas! Now if you are think about posting your cards at the beginning of December?  Yikes! time's going on.....

I spotted a Teddy Boo on a Challenge and decided I must use some of mine again..The poor little critters have been filed away for soooo long!  When a digi hasn't been used for a while, you tend to forgot how much you loved them, I have a folder of these little bears and I wondered who to pick!  So out came  TEDDYBEA-011  isn't she a sweetie...

LOts of glitter on her wings and hat...A marker pen were the sequins had to be placed.. Computer sentiment..... Papers from stash..
