Heavy Parcels!

Hi everyone, It's so cold here in West Sussex.
I can't believe the sudden drop in temperature. Winter is here!
 
I made this card as a sample for The Craft Barn shop. They are now selling
the Wild Rose Studio stamps, papers pads and dies.
 
She is called Girl With Christmas Presents.
 
I am doing an all day class on the 31st January, using the stamps and dies, at The Craft Barn.

I coloured her with Distress Inks, with plenty of Stickles
 on the parcels and the flower in her hair.


For the 'Fur' on her dress, I used Cosmic Shimmer White Glue,  sprinkled with a mixture, made  
from white Fun Flock and Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles.
 
For the snow, I just used the CS glue and glitter.

 
I am at a big Craft Fair in Coolings Garden Centre, in Knockholt, Kent, on Saturday and Sunday.
All the stalls, only have hand made items.
 
I have been working every night until 2.30 am, to get my stock replenished from the last 3 markets.
I did 3 in 8 days and at the last of the 3, they nearly cleared me out of all my big items.
 
I am actually going to bed now, 01.30! Having an early night, as I have a friend coming for a hair cut in the morning.
 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments.
They are all treasured.
 
Hugs,
Carol xx
