So to keep on fashion I have used Land Ho from Dr Digi. There is also Vik the Viking who is not in a boat and could be teamed up together.

Derek Clapton

Morning - How are you all doing in the snowy weather and storms... I know its been horrendous for so many but we have had so little of the extreme weather - I feel a bit aggrieved that we have had hardly any of it and not much snow!! But seriously I hope you are all staying safe and using the terrible cold to remain inside and create...

So this week I have coloured Derek Clapton and teamed him with some music themed paper and a greeting from Pebbles. We all know that special person who loves to air guitar to there favourite music.  

I used these copics to colour Derek -

Hope you like this card and stay safe in the cold snow and ice.
