Merry Christmas....

Good afternoon Saturday bloggers...I bet you weren't expecting a card from me today, I'm on holiday from work today but have a bit of a dodgy tummy!! I hope I never caught any bugs from the kids whose faces I was painting last night.....even though the weather was horrendous, it didn't stop the kids and round 2 at the school on Tuesday which will be mega busy and the face painting is always the busiest!!

I thought I would ink up High Hopes - Snowy, I bought him last year and only used him once so time for him to come out again and he has been coloured with copics The papers are from Echo Park - Winter Park and layered onto kraft card. I added a couple of layered snowflakes which were punched with my MS punches, glittered and added a button and twine to the centre, there was just enough room for those teeny pearls...oh and the ribbon!!

Love this snowman - it's a really fun image and it goes so well with your DP. Sorry to hear you've got a poorly tummy - brandy and hot water might be worth a try. It may not cure the tummy bug but you won't care! xx
