I Come Bearing Gifts

I really didn't have any spare time to make all my Christmas cards this year but I did manage to rustle up a quick one for the eldest to give his younger brother...

Its self-explantory, a bit of stamping, a bit of colouring with Prisma pencils and a hand drawn chunk of ice.  

I added lots of sparkle to the ice but it never works with the camera.

 x Wishing you all a Happy New Year x

  1. A fabulous polar bear card,gorgeous colours and a brilliant sentiment

  2. I'm so sorry your time is limited in making cards, but the ones you do have time to make are always the cutest!! This sweet polar bear image never goes out of style and I'm sure the sparkle you added to the ice berg he's sitting on looks perfect IRL. Your coloring is always top-notch and this is a perfect card for a brother from a brother! Wishing all the best for you and yours in the coming new year, and thanks for being such a wonderful supporter of my blog in 2021! My wish for you is more time to get crafty! Stay well, keep smiling, heartfelt hugs!

  3. Fabulous card Claire …so cute …
    Happy New Year !….

  5. Happy New Year, Claire!
    I love this card. I am very impressed with how you drew this ice floe. I love all the refractions and shadows because they create a truly unconventional image. This is so special !!

  6. Hi Claire, a very Happy New Year to you and yours! Love the cute bear sitting on the iceberg. Have a wonderful week... Megan
