We have blocked drains again. It always seems to be The Doc who has to ring the council to come and sort it out every 18 mths or so though this time it is only 9 months! The blockage is always out on the main road and there are at least 20 houses between us and the main drain. Anyway the call was made to them yesterday and there is supposed to be a response time of within 8 hrs. It is now 23 hrs and no sign of them hence the reason why I am so late for my own Christmas Card Club post.
It was my turn to choose the theme and I went for Polar orTeddy bears on our cards.
My first card is a Joy Fold Card (I do like making these ) using a Polar Bear design that was a freebie sheet of images from Making Cards Dec 2015 called Traditional Christmas.
Below is a close up of the tag I made from the freebie design paper.

My next three cards are not what I had intended making. I was looking for a digi file to check for a particular Bear digi I knew I had but when I opened it I think it is actually a dog and not the Grizzly I thought it was so even though I have coloured it up I will save for another time. Whilst looking for the said digi I came across a Poly Craft file of digis I had purchased way back in 2011 when I first started colouring. They were 100 discontinued digis for £9.99 so I bought them thinking I would practice on them first then promptly forgot where I had stored them!! On opening up the file lo and behold I found these images of Bronson (who is most definitely a Bear) and Beaker (which I have coloured up as a Robin).
Next one is called Bronson and Beaker Branch 76354. I have used papers from the same 2 paper packs. The die cut sentiment this time is by Tonic called Modern Merry Christmas.
Last card is called Bronson and Beaker Gifts Galore 736472 using backing papers from the same two packs as above. The die cut sentiment is by Tonic called Wave Merry Christmas.
