Hello Everyone...

I had a wonderful day off yesterday and had the g/sons, and also taught them the joy of public!!..All those sad faces wandering through we played a game, and lent right into some peoples space and said very loud..MERRY CHRISTMAS..the boys thought it was so funny and most people smiled back and said Merry Christmas...and some DID NOT...great day had by all.

Although I do not get is Snowy Saturday time with MISS DAISY STAMPS  and I have a very big HUG for you from a snowman who has a very warm heart..

HUG A SNOWMAN  is a fabulous digi from Miss Daisy stamps..and here he is..

I made another mixed media canvas and started with an old phone book pages for a bit of background interest..

Layered on gelatos for the  sky and stencilled snowdrops with modelling paste...and lots of paste on the ground for the snowman to stand on..

The little sign post was coloured with Faber Castell pencils and the wonderful snowy tree is a plastic Christmas branch decoration which I found in the $2 shop and cut into three..

I then added large pom poms for snowballs and coloured the snowman with copics...

A few more punched snowflakes with sparkly gems and he was all done..a lot of fun to colour and make up..kept me entertained all afternoon...

So pop over to our FACEBOOK    page and check around at all the lovely cards and projects that are popping up..drop over to the MISS DAISY STAMPS STORE   grab a few bargains and join in on Facebook..a lt of fun..

Thanks so much for stopping by the time you read this post I will be tucked up in bed snoozing away ready for Sunday work again..

See you soon..
