WINTER CHILLS WITH LACY SUNSHINE



Hello everyone...

I'm a bit late with my post this week as my internet kept going down over the weekend and I got plain fed up...

A new challenge has started over at Lacy Sunshine  and this time we are looking at...

 "WINTER BLISS"...not too sure if anyone loves Winter ..but here in the middle of a stinking hot summer I could enjoy a polar blast for a day or two..
For my card this week I was able to play with Eleanor and Pickles  and I love these two characters.



Quite a big card as I printed the image big so I could see it all..and not a very steady hand with copics.

A lot of fun to colour though...tons of snow and a grass punch lathered with snowy glitter for the top border.
Chip board stickers from my stash and glittered card stock.


Enjoying using my copics more and more but still use my pencils for a lot of my colouring..like skin..the sign board and shading over the copics..



Cute little pair...

So post done..late.. but up and on my old PC...slow but sure..
I have the man coming today to give me lessons on my new computer and help me find my  stuff on windows 8.1..that should be interesting..

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love..

Entering this challenge..

Crafty Hazelnuts extra challenge   [anything goes as long as it is Christmas]

see you tomorrow..

Aaah what a sweetie and i love the cute animal with their tongue out, great colour combination.

I could always send you a blast of cold air, as apparently it's going to be -4C overnight !!, Luv Sam x

I like snow for December, for me it's something that adds to the Christmas spirit, but otherwise I don't care much for winter and snow. But I love that we actually have 4 seasons, just wish sprung and summer could last a bit longer....
Had winter been as cozy as on your image it would be another thing, though... It's a really detailed image and you colored it so well...

I wish I lived in your corner of the world. I don't like winter at all - and we don't have them bad here in Texas. Yep, give me summer!
Love your card! All that blue makes me happy and that's really a cute, cute image - that's beautifully colored too.

How fabulous Chrissy! You have certainly captured the spirit of the frostiness of winter. Wonderful colouring of the image - but that's nothing new from you! Hope your lesson went well maybe you should send him over here to give me a lesson on my Mac though I think I would need more than one lol!! Susan x
