Mini Pocket Letter in a Folder with extra Goodies

So I had a swap with with a friend online and I always wanted to try a mini PL.  I also saw some people putting them in folders too so why not I made mine own up and Loved how it turned out. I tired a few things I've not tried before and most likely will try again. This took a little while to get it all together and it was fun making it,
 The cover has a pull out tag.and then the mini Pocket Letter which I hope she likes
that just slides in
Inside a little pocket to hold some bookmarks and some other stash
the Mini Pocket letter is Held in place with Brads
The Center Window has one of my Fave Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
Which is fun to make her face Glow from the potion she's making 
The back of the PL I Put a whole bunch of washi for my swap buddy
Couple of bookmarks with little shaker windows
Those are some Simon says stamps that are Perfect for a Valentine Swap

Winter Tag

Just A little Warm Winter Wishes for you all stay warm. This tag has more going on then I thought It would when I started the main tag is a Tim Holtz Tag, I altered it to have a icy feeling the reindeer is painted brown then attached on to the tag where I went over lots of it with White to add in a snowy effect the snow on the bottom has crushed glass and fancy glitter on it
The Circle Stitched die is a Stamplorations die with the outside stamped with the circle from the Coffee Petities Set I stamped it a bunch of times seeing I missed the alignment so I just kept stamping till it looked more uniform.  The Words are just random sentiment parts.

Winter Bookmarks

There is something about handmade bookmarks that when you tuck them in a book it makes it that much better. Even when I drop some books off at those little free libraries I like to tuck in the odd one for who ever reads my book next and I hope they like both 
Plus this is a great way to use up my bits of scraps

Penguins and Christmas

Here is a new Image from Limited Runs it's Penguin #1 
Colouring Penguins can be a challenge at times seeing you want to give them some sort of shading what I did this time was coloured him all up dark and then used a colourless blender to lighten the Ink on him and I think it works perfectly on giving him shades without using a lot of colours
I also altered the Ribbon by using some markers on the edges to make it blend in more
