Silly old bag!


Boy it’s warm today, even in my office!  I am very typically British in that I like to moan when it’s too cold and then moan when it’s too hot.  You see, I am always happy to ‘fly the flag’.

Well, today’s offering was inspired by Create and Craft’s premature Christmas shows and all the lovely Christmas cards that seem to be popping up in Blogland. 

I call it…… umm ‘Bag’.  Well I couldn’t think of anything else.

The first side.

Close up of my slightly dodgy cutting out.

Love this image.

Who knew that Pumice Stone DI would turn silvery on Centura Pearl?

The other side.

More slightly dodgy cutting out.  Oh dear.

I think that snowball gave that snowman his black eye!

I like to use things that have languished in my crafty stash since the year dot!  And while rooting through I found some old Papermania Christmas papers in gorgeous icy lilac and chilly grey and my winter S.W.A.L.K. stamps.

I really enjoyed colouring these images with my Pro & Flexmarkers and I used some white gel pen for the highlights.  I also used a lamppost and snowball image from Jane Nestarenko’s Cute Companions range.  Well I did have a good old delve!

I treated myself the other day to the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia and 2013 Snowflake Pendant, so they have made an appearance too.  Some pearls and Stickles later and I was done.

I wish I had fussy cut the images a little closer than I did but I wanted the little girl to still have her snowflakes falling on her.  Oh well, will try harder next time.

Smiling always (and ‘glowing’ a bit too)!
