Winter Fairy....

Came up to my craft room to put away all the Christmas stamps and papers that are laying around but thought I had just better colour this gorgeous little Winter Fairy Digi stamp from Mo Manning that had been sitting on my desk waiting to be coloured but not used this year.
Coloured with Polychromos pencils, I used Light flesh, Medium flesh, dark flesh, cinnamon for her flesh and Prisma Light Aqua, and of course yellows for her hair. I also used Staedtler Gel liner pen to do some  highlights and of course a little bit of glitter.
Papers are from DCVW called 'Linen Closet', sentiment computer generated.
This card will go into my Christmas box for next year....My friend Val over at Aquarius Blog and I are going to try and make at least one or two  Christmas card each month to help start next years cards...

I think most of us now are getting things ready for Christmas so blogging has taken a back seat but I will be back with one more post before Christmas...

Hope you are all keeping warm and dry in this awful weather, nothing but rain, rain and more rain today...

Thanks for popping by...

Anne

Oh! Wow! Anne how cute is she??
Loving the papers and the super layout.
Hope you are safe from any flooding. The rain has not stopped here all day, the wind is really bad.
Keep safe

Super cute image Anne and one I've not seen before. Great colourway. We drove into Yeovil this morning and ended up having to swim..........it's been reasonably bad up til now but not seen it quite like that. We managed to get through but passed no end of cars broken down or turning round to avoid going through the floods. Needless to say we came back via the A37 and the A303........! The Yeo had totally broken its banks and I feel so sorry for people who have been affected by the flooding.

Hey Sugar!! I have been absolutely lost Anne ever since Thanksgiving.
So far behind in every jot and tittle. My New Year's resolution is not to let this happen again!! This is one of favorite Mo Manning images - sweet snow fairy. I wish I could blow snow - we would have a yard full if I could. I too am going to try to make a Christmas card a month - would love to make two! Happy New Year Anne!!
