Do you need to get warm?

Good evening fellow bloggers and crafting friends.

It's the middle of summer here in Australia but I tell you what ... in Victoria today it was COLD!!!!  Our heater was even on for a while.  I know this state is supposed to have all the season's in one day but this is getting ridiculous!  I'm from Queensland but have lived in Victoria for about 13 years now ... so you think I would be used to it ... but nope.

I have created another Whimsy image card.  I'm still so excited about my recent position on the design team.  I have quite a few stamps from Whimsy but never really coloured them because I found them a bit difficult ... eg animals.  I was pretty stressed out about this polar bear ... but I think he turned out ok.  What do you think?

I have coloured these gorgeous little critters with copic markers.  The stamp is a digi and it is called Warm Winter Wishes.

I have kept it simple (yep it's my middle name) but I did use something NEW!  My wonderful friend Shirley (http://simplystampinwithshirl.blogspot.com/ ) sent me a wonderful gift recently ... some Liquid Pearls!  I have wanted to try them for ages and guess what!  They are AWESOME!  Can't wait to use them again.  This was the first time I tried them (didn't even practice first which was probably not all that smart) so they have come out very small ... but very pretty I think.  The colour is Silver Pearl.

Shirley also sent me a truly gorgeous Christmas card!  I love it! and it has taken pride of place on my desk and I'm sure it will stay there even after all the other Christmas decorations have gone away because it just makes me smile.  Isn't it just stunning! .......... It's a shaker card .... oooohhh I love it!

Anyway a lot of waffling from me .... so bye for now :)
