Merry Christmas

Happy October!!  I can't believe I just said that!!  Where has this year gone?  Well, it's time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and if you've been playing along with us all year, you will have gotten a good head start on those Christmas cards!  As always, it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas related and you have all month to play along (as many times as you want!).  Our awesome sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and here is my creation to inspire you:
I just love this little bear from Bugaboo.  Unfortunately, I think he's retired (maybe just hasn't been moved to the new shop yet) but I just.  can't.  stop.  using.  him!  I went pretty CAS with this one and got to use up some paper scraps at the same time!  A die cut snowflake and a few silver sequins were all it needed to dress everything up.  I hope you will play along with us this month; I can't wait to see what you create!

Supplies:
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Polar Bear" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
Dies: PTI "Fancy Flakes"
