And a Teddy in a Topiary Tree...

 I'm so happy you could stop in today!
The holiday season is definitely among us and the Christmas cards are flowing in which is exactly what the challenge theme over at Squigglefly is....Winter Wonderland!!
What's different about this little cutie? Well, it's not exactly a holiday image, BUT thanks to stickles, red and green markers and holiday papers, this adorable Topiary Ted by artist Diane Carubia has been turned into a little Santa bear trimming up his holiday car tree complete with lights!
We would really love to have you visit and while you're there, enjoy the most wonderful creations by my teammates and see what Squigglefly artistists they are featuring.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx
