I love this little bear so much!!

Well I have been on a roll over the past few days with these LOTV stamps...aren't they just great....I hope they have a stand at the SECC at the end of the month!! Now..the stitching...I thought I would have a go again and real stitching but it's a hit or miss...I started off not bad but then I thought I was driving a car and I speeded up and started to go a bit all over the place...that's why I don't!! I even stitched the circle...look how squint it is...but I think it adds to the vintage look I was aiming for...hmm. The papers are from Fancy Pants and James is of course from LOTV which has been coloured with copics and I finished with some glitter and 3 snowflake I don't have a snowflake punch or die small on my buy list!!

Hi Fi, This is really nice, I will never get fed up of this cute bear.
Your stitching is fab, I don't think it should look too perfect anyway, it is stitching on paper after all....I did some recently and made it abit wiggly on purpose, I like it that way. It's lovely well done you. Debbiexx
