Stamp with Fun Mistletoe kisses

Stamp with Fun have a gorgeous sketch this week......just managed to get another xmas card made in time.......used one of my gorgeous new stamps from Ally Pally......a real cutie this one.....also used copics for the first time [as you can probably tell!!!] and not over happy with the results....will need some practise to get the blending right.....but as they say 'practise makes perfect' got a hell of a lot of practising to do!!!!! All the papers are The English Paper Company......card is DCWV.......brads are Doodlebug and are actually very glittery.....snowflake is a Dress It Up button........sentiment is from Stamposaurus........also used my new bargain Fiskars snowflake embossing border punch, but doesn't show up too well in a lot of layering.
Spent much of this morning in town in the Post Office.....the more 'improvements' they make the slower it gets!!!!!......and the guy behind the counter totally agreed........but posted off a load of Ebay parcels.....was really pleased with how well my stuff sold.....and can now be 'recycled' via paypal to other craft 'must haves'!!!!
Now gonna make the most of this afternoon's lovely sunshine......enjoy your weekends......hope the sun shines for you.

Colouring looks great so far. How different are the copics to the PMs? The layering looks fab too. Great colours. Have a great weekend. Hugs Cherry XXX
