Countdown to Christmas

Happy Friday friends.  We have a new release for you over on the StampFairy Blog.  

This cute little bear is one of the adorable images from the new Barry Countdown to Christmas collection.  I love these new bears that Gerda has designed.  I colored this sweetie with copics and colored pencils and used Glamour Dust on the hat, ornaments, and ground snow.  There's Glossy Accents on his nose and one of the red ornaments.  The tiny little ornaments that I've tied with silver cord ... well, that image is a freebie from Gerda this week and you can make it any size you like.  How fabulous is that?  My snowflake is from a die and I added a little heart button and sentiment tag.

Here's the entire Barry Countdown to Christmas collection and you can find them over in the StampFairy Shop.  Please be sure to stop by the StampFairy Blog to see the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
