Gettin' Sketchy with Paper Play Sketches

Hello and Happy Friday, bloggers!  The weather here in PA today is GLORIOUS!  I don't know if the temps broke any records, but I'm sure we all have a bad case of Spring Fever right about now!  LOL!
 
In direct juxtaposition to today's weather, I have another Christmas card to share with you:
 
 
This one was inspired by the current Paper Play Sketches sketch:
 
 
I don't know what it is about these monochromatic cards I've been making lately, but this is another one for the stash!  I used my brand-spankin' new MFT Polar Bear Pals set for the ADORABLE bear.  Oh how I love this set! EEEEEEEEEE! Every card I saw on the internet made with this set just made me want it more!  I finally found an online store that had it in stock, so I snagged it up!  :)  The designer paper comes from the 12x12 Bright and Jolly pad from Recollections.  The colored card stock comes from the 12x12 Turquoise pad from Craft Smith.  I got a BUNCH of these paper pads at Michael's the last time we went, because they were 75% off.  Can't pass up a deal that good, and it's textured card stock to boot!  I didn't really have much of that before, so now I most certainly do...and in a rainbow of colors!
 
Along with Paper Play Sketches, I would also like to join in these challenges:
 
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #26:  ATG or optional "Holiday Humor" theme
ABC Christmas:  "C" for Creatures and/or "D" for Dimension
Winter Wonderland:  ATG, a tribute to the challenge creator, Eileen, who suddenly passed away in January
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper:  ATG with patterned paper
Hiding in my Craft Room #289:  Embossing (sentiment is heat embossed)
Die Cuttin' Divas #305:  Animals (image cut with my Cameo)
Sweet Stampers #4:  Sentiment
Love to Craft #7:  ATG (2nd entry)
 
Well, I guess that's it!  Hubby and I are headed out for some Chinese, so I'm gonna get this post linked up...Thanks for stopping by today, and God Bless!
