Warm Winter Wishes - Crazy 4 Challenges #12

Happy Saturday!!! I CANNOT believe it's almost Thanksgiving here in the US. After Thanksgiving it seems like Christmas is only a couple of days away! And I still have a TON of stuff to do before my Christmas Open House! Yikes! If I'm MIA any day, that's probably why, LOL!

But I'm here today with a brand new Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. Frances has a sketch for us--I looooooove me some sketches :)

I've been NEEDING to play some more with my PTI Holiday Button Bits so I pulled it out and decided to run with this CUTE little snowman. Ain't he SWEET? I stamped him on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored him with Copic markers. I stamped the head again, colored it, and cut it out before adding some Polar White Flower Soft to his hat. Embellished him up and he's good to go! I just could NOT leave his button holes naked, though. I could not do it!!!!!! So I ran some brown Pearl Cotton through them. Now, he's dressed ;-)

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy 4 Challenges team!
