Busy Busy!

Hi! It's been a busy time over the last week but I'm pleased to say the ratio of craft time to work time has been in favour of craftiness!!  Had the most amazing girly road trip down to Cheshire to spend Friday to Sunday in the company of the very lovely and brilliantly talented Rosemary Merry!  What a treat of a weekend! Pampered in a hotel for two nights with every spare minute (and I mean EVERY!) spent crafting on a variety of different projects including mini albums and home décor.

So all in all, a fabby way to spend time with crafty friends and be inspired by one of the best crafters in the business!

Now back that I'm back home I'm having to resist shopping for new crafty products that we used over the weekend and try to focus on what I've got.  I had a distant memory of a Christmas stamp that is probably one of my all time favs.  Yes, it's Snowy from Penny Black.  This is a Margaret Sherry image from 2002 but I think it's probably one of the best (and certainly very easy to colour!)
I've used my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens on this one.  The greeting is a Lil'inker Designs die.  Snowy is given a bit of sparkle using Stickles "Icicle".

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Penny Black (Anything Christmas)
Stamping Sensations (Christmas Greeting)
