Happy Sunday morning everyone!

I have lots of favorite techniques but when it comes to Christmas I always turn to my trusty bottle of Puffy Paint and my heat gun! I use it for snow and all the furry bits on hats, boots and all that lovely winter wear.
I hope you can keep on with your Christmas card creations and come and share with us at Christmas Card Challenges
