"C" is in the Air Again~

Hi Girls,
Hope you all had a nice Monday.
My hubby went back to work today after having a week off...Boo Hoo. I Love it when he is off work, and I missed him today.

Did lots of cleaning earlier, then helped my son pack for his holiday on Wednesday. He is off to Tunisia with his girlfriend and her family for two weeks, it will be quiet, I will do less cooking and the electricity metre will do less spinning while he is not here, but I will miss him!

I had a little time tonight to have a bit of a play with my new stamps.
It's another "C" (Christmas) card, and I really enjoyed making it.
I saw these stamps a couple of days ago on QVC and I just had to have them, I am so pleased with them. They are by Kanban, not really something I would normally have bought, but I just thought they were cute, there are about 6 different Teddy's all in Christmas poses.
I don't own very many Christmas Stamps, I have had a list of some I want to get over the next few weeks.

Sorry about the awful photo, it's caught the light abit, not very good here tonight.
Not sure if this next image is any better!!!!!

When I saw these cute bears I thought they were perfect, and they are quite a large image too. The cardstock I have used is 6x6 and I have used my largest nestie circle and scallop. The sentiment also came with the image.
The papers are Fizzy Moon, the snowflake and border punches are by MS and the shiny paper is from a pack of sticky back from the kids section in the "Range" it is very nice and comes in packs of 5 different iridescent A4 sheets, great when using a punch as the back just peels off.
The image is coloured with Pro-Markers.
