True or Faux???

Hi all. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, despite the grey and gloomy weather that we are having today.

I thought I would opt for a bit of snowy cheerfulness today with this cute little digi image from Digistamp Boutique.

It's lovely and simple to colour and took no timeat all, so I invested a bit of time in making some more paper beads for the embellishments. Now that I know roughly what size and shape of paper I need to roll the right size beads, I can make them out of almost any paper, and in this case I have used some left over scraps of Nitwits digital paper.

I have also added a bit of faux stictching to create a frame and not forgetting the essential ingredient........GLITTER!!!!!!!

I have a few lovely challenges to enter today:

Christmas Card Challenge - Snowmen
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas
My Mums Craft Shop - Winter Wonderland
Anything Goes - Stitching - Real or Faux
Creatalicious - Winter

Right, time for me to go out and tackle tescos now, before a night or relaity TV entertainment!!
