Evening all... well as I said in a previous post ive been playing with some of my new christmas Magnolia stamps and boy are they cute!!!I just love colouring these sweeties. And when I saw Mina's fab sketch over st JM I just had to have a go!I've used cutie santa Edwin and perched him on the fab fireplace image.I'm really into masking atm and distressing too lol.And these MME paper's are perfect for this i think. I've used my fave colour medium polychromos to colour my image and used old paper distress ink for the background as i felt the white was too harsh for the card.The buttons are Papermania,sentiment is from a PB clear set and ofcourse no card of mine is complete without me handstitching lol.Well i'm off to watch I'm a this programme :)

have a lovely evening and thanks for looking xx
