Warm Hands, Warm Heart

Hello my friends I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  We've been busy here as seems to be the norm of late.  My boy went to work with his dad for the morning and earned himself a few pounds in the process and my youngest and I ventured into town to stock up on choccie to fill the kiddies Advents and it was absolutely manic, but hey we got to have a black forest hot chocolate in Costa so my day was all good! 
Okay, I've popped in today to share with you a little Whimsy goodness which I've been meaning to blog for a couple of days now but not got round to it.  Anyway, what I have made is a little three draw secret gift box which I've wanted to have a go at for ages and I'm so glad I did as its so cute and really very quick and easy to do too!  I can't take credit for the idea though as I first saw it on Norma's blog and she very kindly has a tutorial HERE to follow so go check it out. 
So I used the Whimsy Time for Tea Stamp 'Warm Hands Warm Heart' and she's a beauty.  I've switched back to my copics for this one and took my colour inspiration from the papers.  Let me show you some piccies  - I hope you're sitting comfortably as there are quite a few!
Medium:  Copics
Papers:  First Edition ' Nordic Christmas'
Dies:  Whimsy 'Reindeer', Spellbinders: Labels 4 and Poinsettia

Lastly the close up of the image, gorgeous isn't she so love that hair.
