Over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week, the challenge is to use a PB stamp with snow on it. Well by a stroke of good fortune, one of the only 2 PB stamps I have HAS snow on it, so I was able to do another of their challeneges ;-) I combined it with a Sketch Saturday challenge so it's a 2 in 1 lol xxx I used my Prismas with Sansodor for this and I am getting a bit better at using them and I am starting to quite like the results.





I have also posted a candle I did
for a
workshop for Creative
Pastimes in Ellesmere Port last
weekend. We did
Christmas cards and we had
a hoot. One of the regulars
on the workshop is a man and he went home with his beard covered in gold glitter!!! Anyway, as I used the same stamp, I thought I would share it with you. Please excuse the wonky photography tonight. No, I havent been at the Pimms again, I just didn't straighten it up properly and as my camera needs recharging I did it in a bit of a rush before the batteries went. How very rock and roll!!!!

Papers are all PP and the ribbons and buttons are Poppicrafts
