Henrys Snowman Soup


Sketch and Stash

Morning everyone, well at last the awful gale force winds and torrential rain have passed and this morning the sun is again shining through the window, makes such a difference to my mood when I wake up to sunshine, I am off to the Hairdressers today to have my usual colour and cut, I am trying to grow my hair into a bob after years and years of it being very short and it has been in that awful in between stage for the last few weeks so I will be so pleased to get it done. My pledge to not spend any money on craft until I get to Ally Pally was broken yesterday, I just couldn't resist those new Christmas Manga Girls from Sugar Nellie!!!!!

Well onto todays card which is for Sketch and Stash, another challenge I haven't had time to join in lately, they have a great sketch this week that fits my brand new Henry from Whiff of Joy and also the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Pad that has just been stroked but not used since it was delivered.



Everytime I ink up and colour one of these new Henry Xmas Stamps, I think it is my favourite, but the truth is they are all my favourites, he has such a fabulous cheerful face. He has been coloured with Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Broken China, Peeled Paint and Antique Linen), I have distressed around the edges of the image with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick, the snowflake was cut with Nesties Snowflake set then glittered with Glamour Dust.


Hope you all have a good day, and I apologise once again for the terrible photos if this sunshine stays should be able to get some decent shots today.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
