My Snow Day Scrooge!

Wow, two posts in one day -  can't remember the last time I managed that!  But actually couldn't get into work today - snowed in, so I spent the day making this card for the OH for Christmas!! (Coloured another image too but that's all I managed!)  Another awesome new Mo Manning digi image - couldn't wait to get my mitts on her new Scrooge range!! Got a Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchett, another Scrooge and the ghost of Bob Marley - watch this space!!
I knew I'd get lots of use out of this sentiment set and it just seems so perfect with the look on Scrooge's face and his miserly temperament - can't you just see him writing his Christmas list for Santa!!  I've used the sketch over on Sketch and Stash which I think I've managed to follow!  I've actually torn a page out of an old, falling-to-pieces book that I bought especially for card making - not Dickens though - but husband is a librarian and a Scrooge - LOL!!  The papers are Basic Grey Jovial and I've used various punches and dies.  The post stamps are ones that I've had an age and just knew they would come in useful!!  The tree is from a Christmas set by Anna Griffin  that I bought a few years ago too!
Hope you're not having too many problems with all the snow - keep safe and warm!

Scrooge doesn't look like Nick (but give Nick time!). He (Scrooge that is) is, however, coloured fabulously and I love all your extra bits and pieces and those sentiment stamps! Fab, Julie! Love Lesley
