Button Bear Wassailing

Are you tired of Christmas cards yet?!?LOL! Im down to 2 Christmas cards before Im finally finished!! I pulled out this retired SU set Button bear for this card. I liked how his bow kinda matched the dp I wanted to use. I colored the bear, hat, and candy cane using gamsol magic. I outlined the bear using copic cool gray no.1 marker. Instead of paper for the tabs I used kraft taffeta ribbon. I added a button b/c I had to!! How can I not use a button on a button bear card?!?!LOL!
This is another teacher card so I made another candle to go with it. Im lovin these candles!! We took the kids last night to do their shopping and it was so cute watching them pick out gifts for us (but of course we couldnt peek!LOL!), each other, and their grandparents. They had a Secret Santa giftshop set up at the school with gifts from $0.50-$10.00 for the kids to shop out but they sold everything by lunch yesterday!LOL! I thought it was a great idea though the teachers helped the kids pick out gifts and they wrapped them at school. We're going to try one more time today to make some candy. The weather is supposed to cooperate today!LOL! Have a great day!

Shannon this card is just too cute. Yeah for you that Roxie used your CASEd card from Anne for inspiration.
Sorry the 2nd batches of candy flopped. We will try again Saturday.
I had such a fun day with both of you here.

Love the bear! He reminds me of a Boyds Bear. They make them in Pennsylvania. Too cute and what a great gift!
