Hi lovely Bloggers - hope you are all having a happy week?
LET IT SNOW is the theme chosen by Chrissie and Mandi this week at 
LESS IS MORE,  and guess what -  we woke up to a thin coating of the white fluffy stuff in this part of West Yorkshire this morning, and very pretty it looked too. 

This gorgeous Hero Arts Penguin is another of my all-time favourites!  
I masked the central  image, and then there were three!
Images stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink.
Lightly coloured the hats and scarves with Copics. 
 SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the "snowy" ground and hat bobbles. 
Sentiment from Lili of the Valley.
I would also like to enter the following Challenges:-
Oldie But A Goodie - Christmas Animals (image must be over 6 months old - my Penguin is 3 years old)!
Paper Minutes - Clean and Simple, not much colour but lots of white!
~ Love to all ~
