Monochrome Christmas...

Hi Everyone, 

Welcome to my wee bit of blogland.  Im back again this week with number 2 of the 2024 chrimbo makes. I decided I am going to get cracking with the makes as once the weather is better I will be out in the garden painting rather than playing in the craft room!!! The painting is sadly not happy crafty fun out there. I have a new fence as the old one blew down in the last of the storms so it needs a good paint. Everything else outside that needs painting is sadly needing done too. Last summer was lost here with lots of other stuff going on so didnt have time to do it.
I love my promarkers. I Said in my last post that I really struggle with my copics so it was a joy to get the pros out for this wee guy.  Hes about 10 years old as I was looking on a USB for something else and came across his file. Hes from Pink Petticoat. Later known as The Lovely Studio. I cant find Liz on the internet now  :( Her image's and papers were amazing!!!!  
Card Recipe
A6 Card
Digi Stamp - Pink Petticoat.
Inside Sentiment - Crafters Companion.
Coloured with Promarkers.
Stickles Glitter Glue
Glossy Accents for His shiny Nose. 
Wink of Stella glitter silver on his belt.

Im off to have some lunch now and then hopefully the day will have brightened. It was snow near here yesterday and it was very cold again. Really isnt like spring at all. 

Stay Safe Folks,

Love and Sparkle's,

Hazel xx

Hi Hazel. Great to see you crafting and blogging again. And especially good to see you entering the CD Sunday Challenge. Another great Christmas card and hopefully you'll get a good number made before the garden work gets in the way.

Hi Hazel, how lovely to see you posting again - and, incidentally, thanks for popping by my blog as well - and joining in with my challenge for this weeks' challenge at Passion for Markers.
Love your really classy Christmas card, I used to love Pink Petticoat (still have some of those images myself as well) and had no idea that she changed to The Lovely Studio, such a shame so many fabulous companies no longer exist. Sarah
