Santa Kitty has a friend: Santa Bear!

Remember this Santa Kitty Christmas card from last year?  Well, I found a new place for Santa's Hat!

It's been a while since I participated in a challenge.  I've had a busy October and I want to get back to crafty normalcy.  So, here's a challenge entry for the Just Cute Bears Challenge #38, which is a sketch challenge.  This is their sketch:
The design team's samples on their blog include some very cute stamped bears in Santa hats.  I've had my own die cut bear for a while, but it just so happens that a new scrapbooking store opened near my house: Scrapbook Queens.  I bought some flock there last weekend and I've been looking for a chance to use it.

Enter - Santa Bear!
I was going to make the bear brown, but then I thought it might be too dark with such a dark green paper.  So, I decided to make the bear grey.  It looks so soft and cuddly!  I think the buttons do a good job providing contrast from the fuzz.
Please post your comments and let me know if you like him!  I will have to find some good papers to make a brown bear too!
