Polarbear buddies card / Mojo Monday 268

Hi ! Well it's Monday, the start of another week and just a few short weeks 'till Christmas! many of my FB friends have Christmas countdowns added to their wall! Yikes, that only reminds me of how little time I have to get my shopping done- since I live in a rural area that means long drives or many hours searching and/or shopping online!!! I'd rather spend my computer time on crafty blogs !!!

I did manage to convince my DH to do some browsing for techy stuff!!!  I, meanwhile, used my "extra" time playing along with Mojo Monday ..... sooooo love their sketch this week !

For my card I grabbed an older stamp of mine. This stamp caught my eye when I first saw it and I just had to have it ( How many times have I said that!! LOL) 
It's a fairly large stamp ( 4.5x 4.75") and I've struggled to be able to succesfully  incorporate it into my cardmaking. So for much too, it has sat neglected. I nearly got rid of it a time or two, but I just adore the image! 
 Then I got to thinking  of new ways to use it.....
  I stamped the big bear on a circle and then stamped the little bear and tree on a scrap piece of white cardstock and joined them together! The snowflake and sentiment are from CTMH's Snowflakes set. This is quickly becoming a much used and favorite set of mine! I love that my Cricut cuts the perfect mat for the snowflake... saves a bunch time!!!
By cutting out the smaller bear , I was able to offset it a bit and a few foamdots added some dimension. More paper from my Xmas stash from last year . I used some Stickles and Copics to add color. A glittery snowflake completes this card nicely, I think.
Here's inside the  card..........
Isn't that greeting so cute??!! This card doesn't necessarily have to be a Christmas card... it could be just a fun winter-themed one instead!!
I hoped you've enjoyed my card today .... thanks for stopping by!!!
