Monochrome Christmas!

Willpower!  Don't seem to have any when it comes too crafting!! Bought two sets of stamps weeks ago and said that's it for this years Christmas cards but oh no had to go and buy one more and another and another!!!! This is the latest, great for my snow lovers in the family. Had to send piccies of the snow out here to my son who lives in the city, then out of the blue  he appears home in the middle of the week to see for himself . My card, used the Penny Black exhilarating hedgy stamp, monochrome style. Coloured image with Prisma Pencils , mounted onto Nesties. Background Hero Arts Canvas  stamp embossed with white Opaque embossing powder, Used EK border punch for trim added checked ribbon. Added Sizzix snowflakes and gems. Sentiment, Hobby Art.

Allsorts - Monochrome
Pennyblack Allsorts - Beautyis in the eye of the beholder!  SNOW in my sons case, can't wait to get out there and play!

What a gorgeous card. You sound just like me, and most crafters I know. None of us have any will power when it comes to stash :o)

What a lovely fun card Nnalorac. You have really captured the look of Winter in your card and I love the layout. You have coloured your image beautifully and it is perfect for our challenge this month at Penny Black at Allsorts.

Love this card and adore your new stamp Carol.
You missed a fun afternoon. Great time had by all and impressed with my typing skills after one or two of you know what.

Gorgeous card Carol. One of my fav PB images, looks like he's having a great time.

Know what you mean about willpower and buying stash. Haven't even used some of my new Christmas stamps.

I think willpower is something that Santa might need to deliver to us crafters later this month .. .. .. but I have heard it is in short supply! LOL!!!

Loving your card very much. So clean and crisp with a great image, layout and colour choice. Smashing snowflakes too!
