Imagination Crafts "December Mid Way Inspiration"

Good morning all.

We had  a lovely night on Saturday...lots of alcohol was consumed but not by me so apart from being tired yesterday I was perfectly well! I've now got to make 41 place name tags and a table plan for Wednesday...I did volunteer for my sins!

Eek half way through December already and only 9 chocolates left to eat...where are the days  going to! Here is my second inspiration post for Imagination Crafts.
Our theme is always anything goes and the winner will receive a £40 voucher to spend in the Imagination Crafts Shop.

I've used another of the Decoupage Stamp Sets - Snowman.

Image is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with silver EP, then I've washed the background with silver aquatint, die cut and layered onto a teal mat. Image is coloured with promarkers and I've used stickles on his hat, Background is a Die'Sire Create a Card die from Crafter's Companion which I've embossed then inked with Peacock Feathers DI. Sentiment is from the stamp set. Card is finished with a few gemstones from my stash.
