Papertake Weekly ,,, A Cold and Frosty Morning

Oh my goodness ,, I am watching Sky News and seeing all the flooding in Queensland,, I know it has been going on for days but there is just no end in sight !! I know there must be a few of our girls caught up in it too,, I just hope they are safe !! How dreadful !! Makes any little problems we may have seem trivial eh !!

Anyway,, time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge

Brrr it's cold outside and Jack Frost is nipping at your toes ,,, lots of inspiration through your windows for our theme this week :-)

COLD AND FROSTY MORNING ,, so we would like to see winter scenes and /or icy colours,, so blues, whites, lilacs, greys etc. :-)

We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish this week so one lucky entrantwill win 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper set of their choice.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

One lucky entrantwill win 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper set of their choice.

I was a little naughty and chose a set of Morning Glory papers ,,, then couldn't resist this cute Paul Penguin image too :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edge with Stormy Sky Distress ink. I used a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and a Martha Stewart Icicle border punch and snowflake punch. I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops, some gorgeous ribbon and charm that was a gift from HM teamie America and a Melissa Francis rub on sentiment :-) I used some Glossy Accents on his nose and some Diamond Dust for the icy snow, I have found that the glossy accents is THE best 'glue' to stick the diamond dust ,, it doesn't fall off !! :-)
