Have a Beary Sweet Christmas at the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge Blog

I remember my first teddy bear. It was cinnamon-colored, and half my height (at the time). I was four, and I promptly named her Cinnamon, Cindy for short (very original, huh?). My bear and I had many adventures together, sharing secrets and laughing and sometimes crying, but always hugging each other. And one day, she was just another stuffed animal, and I had grown on to other things, other friends, other adventures. But I still have the fondest memories of my Cindy bear, which inspired me to create my DT card today for the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge blog..

My card features images from an Imagine That! DigiStamps Set called Beary Merry Christmas. One of my images is Copic-colored, and the other two are pre-colored. Can you tell which one? LOL

I used some lovely papers from Decosse's Dynamite Designs, including the set of papers made especially for this month's challenge: A Beary Sweet Christmas Paper Kit, Christmas Bear w/sock; It's Ornamental Paper Kit, Green Balls patterned paper; Glitterati Paper Kit in Gold; Heartland Paper Kit, Green Hearts; December Delights Paper Kit, Deck the Halls 1

I added the following element from Decosse's as well: Mommie Dearest Mini Kit, Bow 3 and Red Brad (?).
Both are sponsors for this challenge:
