Well what can I say! In a word Snow! Its all over the place, bet you have some wherever you are! We were doing ok till yesterday, and it still coming down today! Well at least it give me time to redecorate the kitchen, been saying I will do it for an age, so its finally done!
Anyhow on to the interesting stuff! My pic of the desk today includes some lovely Damask Foiled Card stock & Acetate from Kanban & Some Pro Markers I have been messing with! On the second pic you can see I have been having a go at some heat Embossing on parchment & heat proof acetate, the Cup & Saucer was January's Free Stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine. This was my first go at using the Markers and trying out some shading, think it will take me a bit to get into them though, as I don't have a lot of Stamps that I can use for colouring in. Although I did get sent a great site for Digi Images I will be trying out. I have also been using, yet again....Ella Blue, I found this Lovely, although a bit sinister looking,, with what looks like a scary bald doll under his arm! Its a Grand Adhesion's from Kay & Co from last Yuletide. It just fit with the colours of the Blues & Browns of the Papers & the Ribbon's from a Roll I was lucky enough to grab at an Antique Market in France, really cheap too! In fact I ended up with a bag of 6 rolls for a mear 2 Euros! The last pic is of a really nice Cuttlebug Snowy House Embossing folder. Think I am nearly there with Yuletide cards now, just got my Sisters & Brothers to make, be glad really, want to get on to something different! Take care all of you in this weather & hope your all doing ok!

Fab cards - wish I'd done more now! Still have a bit of time though!

My desk was a bit mad this week though, eh? Mr B has chuckled merrily at the image of girlies the world over turning cartwheels to try and see the picture properly!

Still so busy there! Never knew you could emboss onto acetate or parchment either, love that stamp you've used too. Stay warm!

Get you with your posh embossing! Fab cards. The little houses are especially cute.

I'm just starting out with pro markers too, not sure how well my patience will last as I'm not the neatest when it comes to colouring in!

I've left you a little something over at my blog today :-)
