Good morning to you all out there where ever you reside hope the weather is being very kind to you the weather person has told us SAT & SUN are going to be nice days let's hope so, this is a fun week at OSCC & decided on Not a Square for the challenge & if like me then a square is a safety net to be had & our lovely Sponsor's this week are Stitchy BearStamps & have given us some lovely stamps to work with I chose Angel Bear as I thought it would be nice to make a Christmas card for a change just to pop outside of the ZONE & maybe to give me the elbow in the ribs to make some more as a 100 2 weeks before Christmas is a very big Challenge.
I hope you like this card enough to come & join us in our Challenge it's not hard really just as long as it's not SQUARE be it a scrapbook, bookmark, card ATC etc. the list goes on & this is mine:

The card is from Which craft UK, papers & Sentiment are HOP papers freeby with a craft Mag ( Simply Cards & Papercraft I just had to use these from first seeing them) the circle die is Spellbinders & the embossed star circle/leaf dies are Marianne. I have also used Stickles & the berries if you can call them that are MSfrom a border punch, the image is Angel bear from Stitchy Stamps I hope they like what I have done with it I also used my promarkers.

This is where I'm playing my challenges: - Shaped card must inc an Animal - Anything Goes in August - Must inc Butterfly,Fairy or Angel - Dies to Die for !!!!
