Simon Says - Get Sketching

At Simons Says Stamp we have a fabulous sketch by the lovely Domi for you to follow this week and the design team are featuring Basic Grey.

Not exactly a pretty card this week, rather sooty looking just like Santa when he's been down all those chimneys,
Magnolia's Santa Hug is coloured with Copics and I've added Fun Flock to his coat hat and inked the edges with Black Soot distress then stamped with Magnolia snowflakes. The papers are Indian Summer (the red) and Sugar Rush (the grey) the edges are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and edged with gold stickles, the base snowflake is from a Spellbinders Build a Flake 1 and the upper ones and leaves from various dies - the gold paper is from a little piece I found in my bit box and the gems in the corner are in actual fact gold although they insisted on photographing silver.

We have a FANTASTIC change to our challenge, every week for the month of December !! As a special Christmas Gift Heidi will be giving not her usual $25 spree,  Oh no - Heidi is giving away a $50 spree at Simon Says Stamp Superstore! (includes postage) so what are you waiting for - get creating and let's see if we can't have a record number of entries this week!!! 

It's not snowing here today - just -10 degrees temperatures - brrrrrr................. and I have to rush out to an appointment now but will be back later with my Copic Creations DT card. Keep warm and safe all of you surrounded by snow - hope it's the nice type of 'snow' you have.

This is brilliant in my book - love the stylish colours & that snowflake Black Soot edging is a wonder. Thanks for your compliments about my photos - made my day as it took me a year to pluck up courage to tackle the instructions & try to make it function.......... thought of you yesterday as I hunted for my anti-stat had hidden itself in the wet wipes container!!!
Take care with the snow.
