Walking in a Winter Wonderland and some exciting news


Our theme this week at Winter Wonderland is Walking in a Winter Wonderland so we would like to see images of people or animals walking in snow. There's a great prize on offer from Simon Says. I've used one of the gorgeous new stamps from LOTV coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are from various pads. I thought I would try a softer colour scheme than just red and green for this one and I'm really pleased with the effect. I've used glass glitter on the fur and glitter flock on the snow.  I've used my MS PATP holly set, XCut embossed ivy punch and Woodware holly punch with a Wild Orchid cherry blosom and some red pearls. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Hope you'll join in the fun. I still have loads of Christmas cards to make especially as I make them to sell as well as all my own and I just don't do this less is more thing. More is better I think.
