Repeat Impressions: Anything Goes

Everyone's favorite week: Anything Goes challenge at Repeat Impressions!

I decided to go with Christmas so I have a few cards in my stash early. 
Teddy bears are  amongst my favorite things especially this
2007-I, Christmas Teddy.   I enjoyed paper piecing him and it had been awhile
 since I did a starburst background so thought that
would be fun.  The strip at the bottom is dry embossed. 
I hope you will join in the challenge.  Remember, your creation doesn’t have to be
made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if it is, you will get an additional entry
in the drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate this month!
If you see something you would like to order there is a discount code on my sidebar.

Yeay for Christmas cards! This is very cute and a great way to use up some scraps.

I had forgotten how good the starburst design is for using up all those snippets of papers. Looks really neat here. I do like to sit and fiddle with paper piecing . I find it so relaxing and an easy way to put the world to rights whilst doing it!! Cute bear too. Hugs Mrs A.
