Warm Wishes!

Good morning all.

I hope you've all had a good weekend!? I spent some time with my family on saturday (with a quick visit to a local craft shop with my mum!)and then caught up with the house hold chores and a spot of crafting on sunday!

Today I have one of the adorable new Mary Hall images to show you! What with all the snow we've had lately here in the UK I thought this image was very appropriate, not to mention cute!



Materials

Image: 'Wrapped up toddlers' from the new Mary Hall collection by Sugar Nellie. Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

CS: DCWV

Paper: Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly'

Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

Tools: Nesties, sponges for distressing/inking edges, blending brushes, SU scalloped oval punch, SU oval punch, X-Cut snowflake punch, Cuttlebug snowflake folder

Misc: White funky foam from The Range, adhesive pearls from stash


This new snowflakes folder is one of my favourites (after swiss dots). I didn't get to use it very much on my christmas cards so was keen to get it out again. I brushed over the embossed dots with blue ink and my blending brushes to give the subtle background colour.

I am really looking forward to tomorrow night. I am going to my friends Julies for her 'Cheers to You' tuesday night SU class! My OH has only been away 2 days but I am already lonely around the house by myself so hopefully it'll cheer me up and keep me occupied!

Well thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Vicky ~X~
