Cherished Teddy Angel ~ Wall Plaque

I have had such a busy week because it's the first week of school for my 3 sons! But, I managed to squeeze in a little crafting time. I decided it's time to get started with some Christmas creations. This is one of my favorite Cherished Teddies stamps. I just think she is so sweet, so she is the first one I decided to use for this coming season. And I've used one of my new Fiskars Corner/Border punches I picked up at CHA on my All Girls Get~Away! I love it!
I bought a supply of wood plaques at my local dollar store and am really having fun making decorative gifts with them in addition to cards. They are 6 x 6 with pre~drilled holes that I add a beaded hanger to. I also cover the wood with mulberry paper using modge podge. I also cover the back with card stock which can be stamped and written on if given as a gift.
I'm entering this into the following challenges just for the fun of it:
