Polar Opposites? and a DT call

Today's card shows some more of the digi stamps "in review" over at All That Scraps.  I have used CC Designs "Teddy Emma", her little friend is Polar Bear and I've also used the Snowy Fence.  You can see some more of these lovely images in review, and read about the DT call that's on here... the call is only on until the 16th December, so you'd better get your skates on, (d'ya get it?!)
I've coloured the images with Copics and added Sparkly Fluff to Emma's hat and the Polar Bear.... aren't they just the cutest?  I added Diamond Stickles to the snow on the fence but it's hard to see in the photos, as per usual!  Digital Tuesday has Winter Wonderland as its theme Addicted to Stamps has Snowflakes Totally Gorjuss has Let It Snow and The Pink Elephant Snowflakes and Sparkle so I'm entering all those challenges.
The papers are from my stash, as is the ribbon, and I made the holly leaves myself; well at least I cut down some rose type leaves to look like holly leaves - they don't look bad and they were very easily done.  The flowers and gold glittery fillers are from my stash too.
I tried taking a photo of the little bear from a different angle, you can sort of see his glittery coat and his glossy nose; The Secret Crafter has All Creatures Great and Small as its challenge theme and Ready Teddy Go has Anything Goes (as long as you use a bear image), so I'm in there too.  Cupcake Craft Challenges wants us to show them our Sparkle, shine, gleam or glint, so that's what I'm doing, lol.  
I made the sentiment on the computer, as usual it will be available (just as soon as I get time to add it!) on my freebies page.  
Crafty Creations wants a Christmas card with a sentiment on and the Cutie Pie Challenge is Use a Sentiment, so I'm entering there too.  
I finished the inside of the card off with papers from the front, some gold border stickers and a Martha Stewart Snowflake cut in gold board but absolutely smothered in white glitter embossing, very sparkly!
PollycraftPaper Crafting JourneyCopic Oz and Moving Along With The Times all have Christmas challenges and Divas by Design and Cute Card Thursday have Anything Goes running, so I'll be entering there too.
Don't forget to head over to the blog and check out the rest of the team's work, why not have a read about joining the team for yourself while you're there? I'll be back in a day or so, I've got a few cards made and ready for posting but as usual time is my enemy.  
At least we're having a mild start to summer for a change (last December was stinking hot!), in fact we had our whole summers worth of rain in 45 MINUTES last night!  Now we do get very heavy rain here, as is the case in many sunny places, but I've got to say that 41mm in 45 minutes is very heavy indeed! We've got used to next to no rain over summer and are desperate to get the dams back up a bit (we're at 31% capacity and have been hovering there for years now, thank goodness for desalination plants!) It does tend to rain at night too, leaving the days nice and clear, so we'll not complain thank you very much, lol.
Anyway, I'm sure that's more than enough babble from me until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
