Ooh new images:

I have loved Kristas images from Saturated Canary for ages, but didnt think my colouring was that good and thought I would spoil them. On Monday, there was a discount on Kristas Etsy store so I took advantage and ordered a couple of image, they came yesterday and I've been having a bit practice of my colouring:

I have coloured her with pro-markers and added stickles to the snow and the snowman. I have distressed the edges of the image and of the embossed card behind, then added card candy from Craftwork Cards, that came the other day and the colours match great.

Sorry for the darkness of the photo I hope you can get an idea of it, it's so hard getting decent photos at night.

I would like to enter this into:

Saturated Canary Challenge
- anthing goes.
Ladybug - white on white.
Sassy Cheryls - winter
Craft your passion - tis the season

I have also been doing some stitching whilst watching I'm a celebrity - I'm currently working on the cake band that came free with a cross sitch magazine - however, my concentration hasn't been up to much - I dont think I've done one reindeer correctly!!!

I did however, get this stitched up for a friends birthday - I can post a pic now as I think she has received it:



The pattern was from Daffycat (thank you).

Thanks for looking
