Wow! Thanksgiving is only 2 days away, are you thawing your turkey yet? Maybe you're already decorating for Christmas! Traditionally we decorate the Saturday after Thanksgiving and then attend the Holiday Stroll our town hosts in the evening. The polar bear from Cozy Friends has decided to decorate a little early this year!

Doesn't he look so cute and festive with that wreath around him? First I embossed the polar bear in white on crumb cake and colored him with prismacolor pencils. I used a black marker to emphasize some of his facial features, added glitter to his fur and cut him out. The wreath is snipped from a piece of dp from the Recollections Naughty or Nice stack. I cut a slot in the bottom and inserted Mr. Bear. Here's a close up...

I added some red gems, a red bow and jingle bells attached with twine to decorate his wreath. The main panel is from the My Mind's Eye Countdown to Christmas pad.

stamps: Cozy Friends
ink: versamark
paper: SU! crumb cake, riding hood red, MME Countdown to Christmas, Recollections Naughty or Nice
accessories: baker's twine, jingle bells, prismacolor pencils, glitter, ribbon, gems

Fabulous card Holly. Love how you cut out the bear and used glitter to 'color' it. The tiny bells look great.
