I bought Snowy!

I have wanted Snowy, a wooden Penny Black stamp, for years and the price he has gone for on Ebay has always been too much. When a fellow crafter was having a clearout last week I spotted Snowy amongst the stamps for just £2.50 I snapped him up before anyone else could. I bought another PB stamp and an old Sugar Nellie Gorjuss one too that I had always wanted.  Well it made paying £3 postage worthwhile then.

I was happily colouring him and my R35 ran out but luckily I had a spare. I am starting to buy refills for some of my most used colours as it works out cheaper in the long run.

So he has been diecut with a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and I decided to use an old Cuttelbug embossing folder for a change. The paper is from the MME touch of chalk pad. The sentiment was in my Christmas folder and i am pretty sure comes from an old Humphrey stamp.
