Hello and welcome to my blog crafters! Today and for tomorrow too I've a very quiet house...everyone is doing 'their own thing'...so I thought I'd have a crafting feast and enjoy myself with alot of crafty goodies I've won lately in challenges and hops. You know what they say 'you've got to be in it to win it!' So my image is from Crafters Companion, (won a lovely bag full of various stamps last year) and for their own sketch challenge, handcut scallops, heat embossed using Stazon inkpad and very quickly sprinkling clear embossing powder and heating, added extra snowflakes from a clear stamp afterwards, sentiment is from CC too. Washed the image subtly with Koi's w/colours, corrugated white is my 'recycled' bit from a christmas chocolate box (the inside bit to protect chocs). This would be perfect for a male, i think.


So the other challenges I'm entering are...Allsorts 'nature' anything recycled, new #to me...Alphabet Challenge 'm for men', Inky Impressions 'emboss it', ABC Christmas 'black & white', Stamp Something 'winter something', Crafts and me 'Monochrome', Christmas Card challenges 'no colouring' (so sorry there's a minimal amount), and Incy Wincy 'winter wonderland but no xmas cards'. Back in a bit.
