Snowman and Holly

The current challenge on the Cupcakes Inspiration Blog inspired me to create today's Christmas card. Here's the inspiration photo. Those snowmen are just too cute to eat!

I've combined it with the sketch challenge that can be found on the My Favorite Things blog.

Both the Large Snowman Portrait (001L) and the sentiment are by DRS Designs. I found this snowman image already colored and ready to use in a binder where I keep my extra stamped images. I colored it a long time ago with Prismacolor pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits. Its been a long time since I've used that coloring technique that it kind of makes me want to put my Copic Markers away for a little bit! I got a little creative with the sentiment as it is part of the Christmas Multi Greeting (341H). I use this stamp often when I need a Christmas sentiment to fit a certain space or area. I just cut out the portion that I want to use from my cling-mounted stamp and use it as an individual stamp.  It's like having 7 stamps in 1!  I decorated the sentiment tag with a punched snowflake and a holly paper punch.

Well, that's it for today. I'm off to finish up some more Christmas cards.  I've got to get them in the mail soon! 
Have a wonderful Monday!
