Feeling wintry!

The weather has been pretty cold this week and my thoughts are definitely turning towards winter, I'm going to have to look out gloves, scarves and hats very soon. 

So today I'd like to share another of my new Christmas digi stamps, this one is called Snowball Fun and can be found over at Cardmadfairy's Creations along with the rest of my new designs :o) 

I may have mentioned before that I'm currently developing a new web site for my digi designs and am considering offering coloured versions for sale as well as line art - what do you think? I know there are lots of us crafters who get great enjoyment out of colouring images ourselves and personally that is one of the best bits of the cardmaking process for me but equally there are many crafters who don't feel they have the skills, the time or want to invest in the materials required. It would be a bit of a mammoth task, colouring all of my current digi stamps (almost 100 images) so I'd love some feedback before making the decision.


I coloured today's image with Promarkers, used papers from PaperArtsy and used Marianne's dies for the snowflakes. The fluffy trim (which always reminds me of snow) has been in my stash for literally years and gets brought out for the occasional Christmas card. The sentiment is from a Crafty Sentiments set - Christmas Circles.

Entering this for the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Marker it Up
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Use any Sentiment
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Clear It Out! - Trims 
Ooh La La Creations - Let it Snow
Sketch and Stash - Sketch 
Christmas Inspirations -  Die Cuts or Punches

This is lovely.

I don't buy pre-coloured ones but I know a lot of people do. Maybe just make a few available first to see how it goes,

such a lovely image, nice to see a boy as so many images are girls. I don't buy or use coloured images maybe you could just offer coloured ones from now rather than trying to colour all the existing ones straight away.
