This Snowman with a birdie on top from Stamping Bella (of course), is one of the new releases from last month. I have just managed to use ONE of the new releases I bought and guess what, Emily is talking of another new release at the end of September. How ever will I cope!!! ... and I am nowhere near retirement yet.
My snowman was coloured with my prisma pencils and blended with grumtine. I really enjoyed colouring his never ending hat. It's a major challenge for me to colour in white, is there anyone else who also struggles with this? I never know where to add a little shading or how much to add. The image was cut out with nesties, and layered on card stock which has been through my cuttlebug. Unfortunately the photo does not show the embossing on the background paper very well, but it has been embossed, honest.
It is strange that even here Christmas is synonymous with snow, yet we have sweltering hot Christmases. I guess that comes from movies and books. It is the one thing most South Africans dream of, a White Christmas, note I said most - that does not include me. I LOVE the hot weather we have in December.
I think there is a party going on in my roof and I wasn't invited. Some birds have nested in my roof again, and I swear it sounds like they are having a disco, there is so much shuffling of little feet going on! I must get the ladder and climb in there so I can see what's potting. I mean they are welcome, as long as they behave.Now that I have managed two Christmas cards this year, I better get off the computer and go finish the third one I've started. I'm so proud of myself. Wonder if I'll manage more than two, lol!
