Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  Happy Monday to you.  I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday.  We certainly did in my house.  The kids' dad got them them an Xbox 360 Kinect for Christmas, so we played that pretty much the entire day yesterday and I have a feeling our day today will be pretty much the same thing.  This is fun!

We have a fun challenge at Paper Pretties this week.  This week we have...

Winter Wonderland

Personally, I wish I were feeling a bit of what my sister in the west is feeling, or my cousin in the north.  I'd like a bit of winter chill.  It was 81 degrees today here in sunny Florida.  So I will just look at this sweet little snowman and mentally project myself where he is playing.

Isn't he cute?  He could be ice skating, but in my scene he's pirouetting in a snowy forest.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Kraft, Black
Paper:  Jessica Sprague Winter digi paper (Echo Park)
Copics:  B02, BV00, BV02, BV04, C8, W-0, W-2, YR16
Stamps/Ink:  Sentiment (CC Densigns), Snowflake (The Greeting Farm), Tuxedo Black (Memento), Soft Sky (SU!)
Tools:  1 1/4" & 1 3/8" circle punches

The layout of this card is loosely based on a sketch by Our Craft Lounge.  I did remove an element or two, but want to give credit of what inspired me.

This is so totally adorable. OMGoodness this is so precious. I wish this were all that I were feeling. I'd trade the 81 degree for our meer 40 degrees and dropping weather anyday - and all this horrid snow!!

Excellent color little woman!!
