A Pollycraft Card for a Great Cause!

Here is one of the cards I am sending to Kate as she is asking us if we could donate any Christmas cards we've made to the Great Ormond Street Hospital so the children can send some special cards to their nurses and family over the Christmas period. You can see Kate's post here with all the details, I hope you will join in too and spread the word on your blogs!
I've used this super cute download from Pollycraft which I enlarged and stretched a bit in my graphics programme (I wanted him to be chubbier!!) I've coloured him with Pro Markers (I love Saffron for teddies fur!) and I've placed him onto some Cuttlebug embossed card. I finally added some stickles glitter glue, brads, ribbon and sentiment.


Here are some more views of the card, isn't he just the cutest??

Love Becky xx
