Creative Inspiration #64 Christmas in July

This week it's Lanny's turn to pick our challenge and she decided that the challenge for this fortnight would be "Christmas in July". Well I must admit, it is sooooo hot here in NYC that I would enjoy just a little snow at the moment.

I used this adorable image from Whipper Snapper called Ike and Mike. The pin, charm and lace are from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE. I then made this adorable fimo to match it. Now I must admit, it it weren't for you-tube videos and the books that I've recently purchased that show how to mold the different shapes for heads, bodies, hands, etc.. I probably would still be making a mess with the fimo. This polar bear is the result of me following one of the step by step tutorials in one of the books by Stacey Morgan. I can now say, I think I have the hang of it... So after all that is said and done, here is my take on this weeks challenge Christmas in July.

Another Angle:

I would also like to enter this into the following Challenges:
Simon Says Anything oes
Paper Pretties Animals
Reasonable Ribbon Cool it
Paper Sundaes Christams in July

Image: Whipper Snapper: Ike & Mike
Paper: DCWV Nantucket, Night of Navy
