Warm polar bear greetings!

This is the card that took all day. Seriously, I had this blog post all written out with everything that went sideways with this card. Then I deleted it because it was tedious. I did it once already, you know?

The smiling bear is another from My Favorite Things' Polar Bear Pals. I used several different MFT dies for the background and sentiment strip. The two things that really slowed me down are the silver thread on the round panel, and the little coffee mug. I simply didn't have a mug stamp small enough in scale, so I improvised with a cup from Your Next Stamp that was part of an espresso machine. Oy vey.

So, this is my first entry into the 2016 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  The inside has the "Have a BEARY  merry Christmas" sentiment that I used on a previous card.
