Did everyone have a nice weekend? It turned really cold here, but no snow. I just love this image with the little penguin holding on. They look like they are having so much snow fun. The image is "I've Got Your Back" from the Victoria Case Winter Hearts and Hugs Set. I think this may be my favorite one of the set.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Let's Ink It Up - Christmas - Twist add sparkle/bling
One Stitch at a Time - Old Stash New Stash - Old (tin) New (Stamp)
Paper Sundaes - Gift It
Pile It On - It's all in the wrapping
Creative Inspirations - Christmas Gifts
Crafts & Me - Dreaming of a White Christmas

I found this tin with a plastic lid in my stash and decided to alter it. My granddaughter wants me to bring her some Puppy Chow when I go to Colorado in a couple of weeks and this was just perfect to store it in. The image is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. Since the lid is plastic it was a little bit of a challenge doing the snow. I first painted it on with acrylic paint and then added Polar White Flower Soft with a little Doodlebug Glitter Sugar Coating - Lily White.

The snowflakes were really a challenge. The plastic on the lid is super smooth and slippery so I had a little trouble getting my tape to hold down the stencil. However, I used the Crafters Workshop - Flurries and for the first time I used the Viva Modeling Creme - Pearl Light Blue with a little of the Glitter. This creme is really really nice and goes on so smooth and easy. My snowflakes would have been better if my tape would have held better, but that's okay. I used green tissue paper in the tin because of the reflection of the lid.

Now, before I go Susana has a fantastic NEW PRODUCT in stock. It is the New Sew Easy Tool for those who do not want to sew. The attachment tools are also available.
