Snowy says "Merry Christmas"

It's Friday can you believe that it is here already.... I tell you the days are just flying by, it is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next Thursday.  I have been working hard on getting my Christmas cards done, and using up all those pieces laying around or the things I have on hand...a few of us are on a mission not to buy anything new until summer, now that does not include ink, paper to stamp on etc.  I had this little image colored and was trying to decide what to do with her...Snowy is a girl today :) and I knew I wanted to do a mostly white card.  I was looking at the challenge blogs I say this cute sketch on Cute Card Thursday and one of the DT gals Annie had use the embossed snowflake folder on hers so I thought oh my that is perfect for my little Snowy, so here is my take on the sketch.  My image is stamped on Cryogen white cardstock, colored with copics.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.  Snowys ear muffs have fun flock on them and her bells have glossy accents. Her little coat edge is done in puff paint.  Be sure to stop by and see what Christina and Danielle and Rene  have made in their quest to use up their inventory.

Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - #139 sketch
Magnolia-licious challenge blog - pink and yellow
ABC Christmas Challenge - X is for Christmas

Have a great day thanks for stopping by.
Hugs♥
