ABC Christmas ,,, ‘G’ for ,,,,,,,

Hi all :-) another fortnight has flown by and we have a new theme starting today over on the ABC Christmas Challenge :-) This time it is Lacey’s turn to choose

G colour Challenge

I bought this cute House Mouse stamp recently and this is its first inking :-) It’s called ‘Cold Feet’ and I just love how they are all trying to keep warm in front of the candle, awww :-) I coloured with Copics and Iced Spruce DI from the Winter Seasonal set. I made the background using a Penny Black Pine Border stamp ( thanks Alison xx ) and I tore white card to create a snow drift. The snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches and I glittered them with Hero Arts white glitter and star dust stickled everywhere else :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi from Simon Says Stamp who will be giving a $15 voucher to the store



Elizabeth Craft Designs with a prize of 3 sheets of outline stickers :-)
