Polar Bear Wishes

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

Hello and Happy Monday to all of you! I was so excited when I received an email from Jackie of Love to Create challenge blog several weeks ago asking if I would like to be one of their guest designers. I was more than happy to say 'yes'! thank you so much for thinking of me, Jackie! :) I am honored to be part of your blog this week!

The challenge at Love to Create this week is paper piecing, and the sponsor is The Stamping Chef. I am trying to keep up with creating Christmas cards, so I chose to use this adorable little polar bear image. we also have a 'thing' for polar bears in my family.

papers are from the Authentique Peaceful collection, clear packaging was used to make the banner that I edged in stickles, buttons are vintage, distress stickles are on the hat, a MFT die was used to make the felt rose that is also covered in rock candy distress stickles, charm is from Stamp and Create, and twine is Maya Road. oh yes, this guy is playing in snow that is made with stickles, too. yep, I do love my different kinds of stickles! :)

thank you again to Jackie at Love to Create challenge blog!

i love that polar bear and I love stickles too! i just don't love coffee and maple pecan is just not a coffee flavor Jen, that's a pancake! However I do love coffee ice cream, made some two nights ago, it's almost gone already - and no I would not but maple pecan flavor in the coffee ice cream.
