Cocoa Bear Christmas Card

It's such a wet day today in New Brunswick, but a welcome relief from the 35 degrees plus temps we've been getting.  I've spent this whole week inside a hockey rink with my 5 year old son as he attends a hockey camp.  It has been a little Oasis away from the heat.  This kind of activity has also put me in the mood for making some Christmas cards.  Since a lot of blogs are having Christmas in July, perfect timing!
I used my Teddy Bear Parade cartridge to make this cute little hot chocolate bear.
 I used my Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder and my Elegant Edges cartridge for the mats..
I am entering this in the following Challenges:
