James The Bear!

Since we all LOVE James the bear, I decided that would be my first sneak peek from Lili of the Valley of the newest Christmas stamps to be released soon!


I mean what in the world is happening to me? No flowers? Goodness gracious!  He's such a cutie he didn't need any fluff now did he? haha!


I colored "James -Christmas Tree" with distress ink and I added a pearl pen to the snowflakes.  The sentiment tags are from LOTV called Christmas Sentiment Tags.  You can see the bit of sparkle from the stickles here and there also.

Oh be sure to keep your eyes peeled to the design team's blogs because we will all be showing new sneak peeks from now till the release on August 25th!

I almost feel like I should be saying "Merry Christmas" haha!  Thanks for the visit! Luv to you all!

Hugs, Dena
