Christmas Animal at AYLI

 Nearly the weekend and I am looking forward to it. The weather has been rubbish and I've had a stinking cold (not covid!!) that has left me with an irritating dry cough. Anyway less of my moans!! I am actually here to share my latest inspiration for the new challenge at


The theme is favourite Christmas Image or Animal. 

Well I love to see a bear on a Christmas card and had two favourites in mind, good old James from LOTV or Barry from The Stamp Fairy. Well, on this occasion Barry won and it was a treat to trawl through my old digi folders to choose one of my many Barry images.

Here he is...


I coloured him with Promarkers and glittered the little stars. I had a bit of an issue recently with a few items jumping into my basket over at Craft Stash!! The layered hexagon base was made using these, they cut brilliantly and honestly, the largest one is HUGE, great value for money too. 

I will love you and leave you now and hope that you will join us.

Thank you for your continued support and visits xx

Loving the deckle edged hexagons Sarah, can see why they fell into your basket! OH mentioned a craft shop near the garage where he has to take the car and it turned out to be Lavinia Stamps, he said he'd pop in but I said I might have to make sure myself!! :)

I love the unusual shape on this lovely card, Sarah, and Barry is looking very cute with his garland of stars. The large star embellishment is a fabulous finishing touch.
Hope you are well,

I love the shape and the gorgeous colors and it just makes me so sad that Barry is not still available. Sorry about your jumping issues, I rather think it was a good thing. Beautiful card, Sarah!

A fab card shape using these new dies Sarah and lovely cute image too.
Sorry I've been a bit MIA, things have been rather hectic and no time for commenting, with the run up to Christmas and crafts fairs booked I not sure which way to turn at the moment.
