Flippin 'eck, it's been cold here today!
Been out all wrapped up and am now sat in the craftie space with the heaters on high. Supposed to get a bit warmer over the next few days thank goodness.
I have a few cards done but it was too dark today when I got home to take the pics so am sharing this one which I  finished over the weekend.
The little boy who it's for is, I'm told by his proud great grandparents 'a little love'! They all are aren't they when you can give them back when they become tetchy or misbehave! LOL.
The image was given to me by a fellow crafter - isn't he a happy chappie all wrapped up AND he comes with a present too!!!
He's coloured with promarkers and glittered, then layered onto red and green cardstock. A sparkly snowflake and a teeny red bow with a bauble popped on for a bit more bling!
I added some fluffy stuff round his feet - (bet they're not as cold as mine are though!)
