Little Snowboy

Happy Wednesday folks! The days are just flying by right now and I'm starting to get that anxiety when my holiday shopping list isn't getting any shorter but the number of days left til Christmas is! Sigh! I know there are plenty others out there like me!  Maybe it's the lack of snow or feeling of winter.  Ironically, this snowman here on my card is the most snow I've seen yet!  This is one of those adorable images from Meljen's Designs who is the sponsor of the new challenge starting today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Here's the sketch we're working with this week.  This one goes together quickly and has a nicely layered look when complete.  It's also a good one for those wider images.

Meljen's Designs is our sponsor of the challenge this week. We all love the sweet, dear images Melissa Jenkins creates. The Grand Prize winner will receive four non-colored digi stamps from Meljen's Designs.  You have to be in-it-to-win-it so I hope you'll join us and play along.

This Bundled Little Snowboy from Meljen's was colored with Copics and glittered up with Frosted Lace Stickles. I used Icicles Stickles (say that three times fast) for the sparkle on his hat and mitten fur along with the snow on the ground. I like non-traditional holiday colors so I used Bo Bunny Snow Day collection papers here. The snowflake strreamer across the top and the embellishment are both MS punches.

Now hop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for more inspiration from my design team friends and their cards created with Meljen's Design images. And please join us in the challenge fun this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon, I do love your card, both you and Linda used the same image and how different both cards are. Love your pretty colours and the use of skickles it looks like it's snowed and the sun is shinning on him. Love your design papers as well. I have so much to do before Christmas I'm not sure where to start. The boys finish school next Wednesday for 6 weeks holiday our wedding anniversary next Wednesday 12-12-12 and then Christmas. I can't wait until the 26th Dec LOL.
Take care and have a lovely week.
