Bah! Humbug! Challenge 28

Are you are losing track of the days because of the holidays?  Then let me tell you today is Friday ... which can mean only one thing!  
That is that Bah Humbuggers everywhere are already up to their ears in glue and paper products, joining in this week's challenge. 

Our theme this week is 
It was a 'no brainer' for me to head straight to last year's Christmas Patchwork Pals kit, safe in the knowledge that all the components would be readily available for me to make another easy card as I haven't got time, or the inclination, for complicated projects at the moment.
The most difficult and time-consuming decision to make was choosing which of the many super-cute die cut characters to use, eventually settling for this cute bear dragging his sled up the hill. 
Then it was a simple case of cutting a section from the background design cardstock, adding some snowflake embossed mirri card strips and an acetate front panel before positioning the various character elements ... taking care to match up the front and back views either side of the acetate to hide the adhesive.  Couldn't decide whether to add a bow or a snowflake embellishment in the top corner or not, so will leave that for now but may add something at a later date.
Nothing complicated ... a really quick result ... pain and mess free ... and another addition to the Christmas Cutie section of my 2010 card collection.
You must pop over to Bah! Humbug! yourself and have a look at the super cards Ann, Irene and our July Guest Designer Debs have created in the hope of  inspiring you.  If you feel like joining in we would love to see your results so remember to leave a link in our comment box and we will do our best to pop by and leave you a message.

oh soooooooooooooo cute Max - I just love the way you get a back and a front with these guys - I didn't buy this kit but it's certainly come up trumps for you and all the cards you've shown so far have been fabulous.

What a great choice, the teddy is so cute. If I had to choose I would go with the snowflake in the top corner.
Take Care Debs xx
