a little winter magic

Whew! Three back to back magazine commissions have kept me very busy. They have now been shipped off to magazine HQ and the articles, step by steps and top tips have all been typed up and emailed. I do love my magazine work but my poor blog feels very neglected!

Anyhoo, here is this evenings little creation. I stamped, heat embossed and inked the background. The stamp is 'sweet snowman' by Penny Black and I coloured with my distress pens.

I am entering two challenges...

Sweet Stampin'...all that glitters (there is glitter on his scarf - honest)
Simon Says Stamp...get in shape

Liz, I know exactly how you feel!! I seem to be much slower lately too (more faffing than usual!) and mag work is taking up almost all my free time. Thinking of starting phased retirement next year so I get an extra day off.

Another perfect card!I love the image and how his scarf looks all fluffy. You always manage to produce something original!
