Penny Black Week 111 & Stamptacular Sunday #69

Hi girls. Would you believe that it's the weekend again. Time seems to be racing by. I hope you have something special lined up for the weekend. There is a drop-in demonstration on Tim Holtz Ranger Inks at Stampaholics in Perth on Saturday but I won't be able to go because I don't have enough portable oxygen and although my back is beginning to ease up a bit I wouldn't be able to sit long enough. I really wanted to go but I'll just have to be content and craft instead.
Anyway, it's about time I got down to the business of the card I have posted. I made this card to enter the Penny Black Challenge and the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge both of which had the theme "Christmas in July". I inked up Penny Black's "Coming Your Way" and coloured it with my Copics. I masked the image and used my Hero Arts "Clouds" as a background. The papers are from the Dovecraft Winter Wonderland 8x8 Designer Pack. The snowflakes were made with an EK Success punch. I used sakura glaze to make footprints and sled marks behind the runners of the sledge. The additional presents are from stamps by Dovecraft. The flowersoft, ribbon and gems are all from my stash.
I hope you like this card and that you can find a minute to leave a comment to let me know you have been here and to tell me what you think of what you have seen. Thank you so much for calling in - I appreciate you making the effort. Have a great weekend and stay safe.
