All Wrapped Up


I'm going to keep todays post short and sweet, as i'm finding it difficult to type as both my index fingers are swollen and my wrists hurt - off to see 'Quack' tomorrow to see if she can find a solution - she'll probably say it's a knock on effect of my knee !!!

I won this image ages ago and yet i don't stamp her up very often, but i thought she would be ideal for a 'Winter' challenge, as she looks snug as a bug in her coat and muffler - i've used for the first time my fabby Bo Bunny papers and Memory Box Snowflake Corner (i'd never heard of them, till my friend Janice mentioned them and now i can't get enough of them), the snowflakes are a mixture of dies and punches and to finish off i've added some gems and ribbon.
