Christmas Gnome!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope you are well and keeping warm. We are darn cold here, and there could be snow on the way.

I'm feeling like I'm coming down with flu, but I'm hoping it's just the result of having my covid/flu injections yesterday, have to say though, that I've never had a reaction before, if that's what it is. Arms are so sore too, they feel like I've had the muscles punched inside out.

Anyway, I have a coloured picture today, I've not picked up one of my colouring books in ages, so I thought I would do a Christmas page,

This is from Jim Shore's Holiday Traditions book.

So I've used Prismacolors, and a a Crafty Individual's snowflake stencil and Elements ink. Gel pens and Stickles for sparkle. I enjoyed colouring this up as I've not done one in a while.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on  my last card.

That's me for now, keep cosy and see you soon

He's a very posh looking Gnome with that fancy hat Kate, beautifully coloured. Pretty chilly here as well, keep warm and fingers crossed your not coming down with anything.

This is a great image and looks fabulous coloured in icy blues. Love the stenciled background too, it makes for a very frosty feel.
I hope you feel better soon, probably just a 24hr reaction to your jabs. Out of the 5 jabs that I have had over the past couple of years I've had reactions similar to yours twice.
