Tom's Christmas Cards!

Friday evening we had a phone call from Tom. (son-in-law) wanting to check out my blog and asking how I made my 'Snowy' snowman cards with the acetate and the added snow flake stickers. I said there were some on the blog so he could 'check' them out. By ten o'clock that evening he'd sent us a picture of his finished card via his mobile phone!
He and Emma had gone to Hobby Craft during the week and had bought a Snowman stamp. (I think he thought I'd never get the Penny Black 'Snowy' Stamp in time for Christmas!) When he arrived this afternoon Tom had made a few more cards, using his new stamp, some Papermania Papers and some acetate. So I thought I'd take a picture!
Of course once he realised Snowy had arrive all the way from The States, a production line was soon formed all across the dining table!
While he used my Promaker pens to colour in Snowy, I showed him a new 'Wishing you a Merry Christmas ' stamp I'd bought from Hobby Craft last week (In their sale 79p instead of 2.99) and then got out the heat gun and a mixture of coloured inks and embossing powders and suddenly the production line was even longer! He even mixed a few colours to see what would happen! Snowmen cards, everywhere! I think he's hooked, don't you!!
( gets hot, embossing!!)
Warm welcome and a big ((wave)) to new follower Diane, out the back with no picture and no link! Thank you for joining us Diane!! If there is one, I'll hunt out a link a.s.a.p! And!!!
