Forever Friends Christmas

Another Christmas card, this time made with a sketch from the Spoon full Of Sugar Challenge Blog.
I have used the docrafts forever friends stamps from the 3 Christmas stamp set. I used two different stamps for the main image as to me it looks like the bear is looking at the floor so I couldn't just leave the bear looking at nothing! I used the little robin from another one of the stamps in the set, does anyone else think he's meant to be looking at something or is it just me???
The corner decoration I made from 2 fabric leaves cut to look like holly, 2 buttons threaded with embroidery thread, a fern punch and some red gems. The sentiment was made on my computer.
This is the inside




In the comments on my last card Claire asked how long it takes me to make a card, well this one took me about 3 hours from start to finish- however I sit at my computer desk so a lot of that time is spent blog hopping, fiddling about with the sentiment in MS Publisher, looking at craft forums and generally wasting time!

Hi Sarah,

What a lovely card and what a great idea to put the little robin on. I just love what you have done with the leaves in the corner - I am really struggling to get embelishments to put on Christmas Cards.

Evening Sarah,
Your the same as the rest of us then when it comes to "Craft Time". We should really put our computers to one side but that would spoil the fun (lol). Another great card and lovely colouring as usual!!

Hi Sarah, I've found your blog via the Do Craft site. I love your cards and I especially like the embellishment you created to go on this one. I have a couple of these FF stamps and they're great to use. I agree with you on the blog hopping while trying to make cards, it can take forever to do one card. I've been without broadband for nearly two weeks and have found I've been much more productive. (I've pinched my daughters laptop today to have a quick blog hop). Sue

I have left a few things for you on my blog!

Gorgeous card & so cute :)
Yeah I think the wee robin is looking at something but he looks good sitting at FF bear's feet.
Glad I'm not the only person who takes ages to make a card & that I'm not alone in blog hopping! x
