Favourites, favourites and yet more favourites ...

Stampfairy are sponsoring Creative Inspirations this week and the theme is Contemporary Christmas Colours.

It's also the letter 'Y' at the ABC Christmas Challenge which is 'Your Favourite Dies/Punches', so I'm combining the two challenges for today's card.

What a chance to have a real field day and create something that showcases your own style to the max!!!  And it's not just the dies that are my favourites ....

Loads of my favourite things are on this card :
  • Gorgeous dies, in this case my heart banner, nesties and paw print edger die
  • Jake Wintertime image (or just bears in general really !!!)
  • Pastel colours
  • Pearls
  • Ribbons
  • Pretty papers - especially these Papermania ones (just bought myself a 2nd pack!!!)
  • Glitter
  • Cloudy backgrounds
  • Winter images with snow (not so keen on too much of the real 'white stuff' though)

Yes, yes, yes, I know I used this image yesterday, but he's just sooooo cute.
