Feelin blue milton bear

Have taken the plunge and am gonna enter my first blog challenge !!!

am not sure what all  you wonderfully talented ladies will make of my attempts but hey ho you gotta start somewhere huh?
feelin a bit blue  today , as much as I've caught up a bit with a few tasks at home
I am officially bored of being snowed in !!! this little chap is one of thewild rose milton stamps I got at the SECC in Octrober and he has been used on quite a few of  my Christmas cards ,. this time I went for an icy theme , and think it turned out quite well

I stamped  hom in Momento ink and coloured using my Promarkers and added some stickles to give him some sparkle think it definately makes the poinsietta POP
then mounted on some scalloped circles cut with my nesties

Papers are some leftover Forever Friends from last xmas and I have added a stamped sentiment using a lili of the valley sentiment stamp
 think he'll get used quite a bit as I  am a bit taken with him xxxx

large a4 card Wild Rose Studio

Well  getting snowed in today really did work out kinda well. Not only did I do a mahhhhoooooosive
amount of cleaning but I actually managed to get some crafting done
I have a Christmas Fayre coming up at work and have been frantically trying to get enough cards ready as well as a  commissions from my work colleagues ,... so every minute I get  I'm making cards !!
here's one of the larger A4 cards I've been making
I've used a Wild Rose Studio stamp and isnt she adorable , coloured using pro markers
think the practice is paying off and my colouring is getting better but still a long way to go then finished with some of my fave stickles glitter glue

paper is from last year , think its papermania  and have added a tag
with a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley

snowflakes are punched from holographic card  with Martha Stewart  large snowflake punch and I've added some extra sparkle with some confetti snowflakes  red stick on gems , cos a girl can never have enough sparkle now can she

let it snow letit snow let it snow!!!

 heres what we woke to this morning after another  night of heavy snowfall !!!
couldnt get my car out the street  to get to work , and the schools are all closed . forecasts for more snow and a wind chill from siberia of -20 tonight !!!!so have stayed at home today ..... and cleaned , oh how I've cleaned !!!
was going to do it all at the weekend but now I've got most of it done I can have the weekend off , yay!!! more time to get my xmas cards finished !!!
