Baby it's cold outside...

** This is my second post for today, please scroll down for Tuesday Morning Sketches. **

Have I ever told you that I am such a sucker for snowmen? Well, I am! Winter and I get along only so-so. I don't like being cold, but I love the snow covered Rocky Mountains. I love the powdery snow that glistens like diamonds when the sun is shining, not great snow for building a snowman, but beautiful to look at! But I don't like ice! That's what we get a lot of out here in WV, ice - not much snow. But there's nothing more heartwarming than a snowman built by children's hands with such love and detail.


I love this snowman from Inktegrity. It's part of the Little Helper set that released last week. I just had to play along with a couple of great challenges... First challenge was the sketch from JUGs - great fun! The second challenge is from Digital Tuesday which is to create a holiday greetings card and what better way to greet the holidays then to start singing a favorite Christmas song of my Mom's. The snowflakes I found when googling coloring pages.

I hope you like my card - thanks for the second visit.

Melissa of course I LOVE this take on our sketch - what's not to love about snowmen and yours is adorable (I used a snowman too!) It's fun and cheery and makes the sun shine even if it's COLD out. Thanks so much for playing along with Just us girls.
