23rd Day of Advent

Well technically 1 more day to go, and I have done the last minute bit of shopping, spent far too much, had a lovely lunch with DD, and now sat down to make tonight's piece. A bit of different one for me, and I used a new Stitchels snowman- Cedric. He is by far my favourite , and will be available next year.
I used a pre-made card and black embossed him, then painted him in with pearlescent mica powders. These didn't quite soak into the card, so not as brght or solid as I would have liked. Then I used Snow Writer to make a little bit of snow, and glued down some silver snowflakes from Paperchase, from the same packet as the reindeer and star.He looks a bit cheeky with all the snow on his hat!
Yesterday's winners drawn by Random Integer Generator are
Congratulations and please email me your snail mail addresses so I can post your candy.
I hope you are all almost ready for the big day, and I am off to make some yummy chocolates to make as gifts for our friends who are feeding us on Christmas Day.
See you tomorrow with the last of the candy, and there will be 5 more winners tomorrow, and on Christmas Day the final blog for Advent!
