In the Meadow...

     I really do love snowmen and have used several of them on my Christmas cards this year.  This latest one is a freebie from A Day for Daisies, where they have a "Modern Christmas" theme for their challenge.  Isn't he darling?  I know my friend, Lynn, will love it -- all that blue!  :-D


I chose the sketch from Sketch Saturday.


     I colored with ProMarkers, added loose glitter to the snowman, and die cut the image with an oval die from QuicKutz.  The rectangle pieces are also cut with dies from QuicKutz.  The snowflakes are cut from sparkle CS (ice blue and winter white) with one of my new dies from Memory Box.

     I used a scrap of ribbon, folded it, and tied it in the middle with sparkly twine.  I 'shredded' the twine ends so that I had individual fibers showing.
