Beary Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to our Beary Christmas Blog Hop. We are showcasing items from our new Holiday Expressions Idea Book with various projected created by talented Close To My Heart consultants.  So grab yourself a cup of coffee, relax, take your shoes off and enjoy the journey!

If you just arrived from Haley's The Inky Scrapper Blog, then you are on the right track.  If not, please feel free to start at the beginning with our hostess Carol at Crafting with Carol.  Or, you can continue here as it does go around in a circle.

Below you will find my project Beary Christmas card.  I decided to use the stamp of the Month set:  S1710 Christmas Tunes. I'm a firm believer that anything that has enough sparkle and glitz always looks festive!

Next is a closer look at the sparkle and glitz:

Cats & Bats Waterfall Card

The final card from this month's workshop on Cats & Bats Workshop Your Way (WYW) and the Falling for You WYW interactive cards is a waterfall card made using Cats & Bats papers and stamping sets for both cardmaking and scrapbooking.

I found a couple of video on YouTube, but the one that worked best for me was from Dawn Griffith.  You can find that video here:
