Warm Winter Wishes

Hello, hello!

You are going to get tired of seeing me here.  Really!  I have a little bit (only a wee bit, honest!) of time on my hands, and just had to color up another digi image from Bugaboo Stamps!  By the way, I won last week, and get to choose TEN new digis!  So, hurry over and join in on some of their challenges!

Anyhoooo.....it's become a bit nippy here, so I decided to color this darling snowman.  Any of you who know me, know that I adore snowmen.  I'm especially smitten with the really cute ones, and this guy totally fit that description!

He's colored with Copic Markers, and, OF COURSE(!) I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to get the beautiful straight mat.  I rarely create without them - they take out all of the guesswork!  Check out my sidebar for details on how to save 5% on your own set!  After I took all of the photos and had this blog post ready to go, I decided to add some Glossy Accents to the red band on his hat, and the poinsettia berries, and of course, the ornament!  Gotta have bling and shine, right?

I'm entering this card here:

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug Challenge Blog - November Bingo Challenge
I used Bugaboo image, Designer Paper, and a Charm

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for all of the nice comments and emails about the baby shower.  I honestly could not have pulled it off without my friends, Shirley and Mary, and our daughter-in-law to-be, Alicia.  They all worked so hard to give DD a special day that was just for her!

I'll be back tomorrow with a pretty card - hint, hint - His eye is on the sparrow....

Have a good day!

Patti J.

Way to go on your Bugaboo win. This digi is just adorable, and you've colored him beautifully. He looks so jolly & love all the bright colors. I just ordered some of the perfect layer rulers from Blitzy. Hope I'm smart enough to use 'em! TFS & Hugs (oh yes, never tired of seeing your cards, and also never tire of cute snow guys either).

I agree that the little snowman is over the top cute! Congrats on the 10 bugaboo images and have fun with them.
I have Perfect layers rulers too but just haven't gotten into the habit of using them regularly....they are fantastic and I love them when I do use them.
Your card is really adorable. Thanks so much for sharing this week at TTCRD. We hope to see you back very soon!

ahhh! I've got a thing for snowmen! Congrats on the win. WHAT!!!!! Are you about to be a grandma!!!! Is your son getting married soon?? Nicole is now officially engaged as of about 2 weeks ago and will be getting married sometime this summer. She tried on wedding dresses this past sunday and texted me photo's through out. Wish I could have been there. So weird to see my not girly girl with a wedding dress on!!
