A PB Christmas....and photos from an HA class!

I love this darling stamp from Penny Black, isn't it cute? Once again, I incorporated a somewhat non-traditional color combo for x-mas, with hot pink and canary yellow. I did use some red pairing red with yellow:

Snow Kiss

The image is called Snow Kiss, I made any white portion a little softer with a pale white copic, so the bear and the fur on the girl's hat and around her coat have a creamier type of color.

The sentiment is from a new Christmas set from Hero Arts called Sending Holiday this set!

And speaking of fun things from Hero Arts, yesterday I was very fortunate that I had the opportunity to take a class with Hero Arts' very own Ms. Sally Traidman! She is so very fun and cheerful! Here is a picture with some of our local Hero Arts fans:

This photo below has two of my favorite local stampers: Kathy Ethington in the far back and middle. And Barbara...she has the glasses perched on her hair.....they both teach at the LSS and are so talented:
