More Snow-Day Fun!

 Welcome back to my blog! I am back inside from a couple hours of blowing snow, helping DH get the tractor going so he could plow out our yard and driveways and helping the kids with shoveling snow off the deck. It's so heavy!! There are places in our yard and by the shop/barn where it's up to my thighs! :O CRAZY!! There is no school tomorrow due to bad roads, so the kids and I don't have to go anywhere (yay, a snow day!!) but he's leaving for work and I'm thankful it's done while he was home!

I came across this very cool sketch from Retro Sketches and decided to rotate it clockwise to suit my image: from Birdie Brown (who, by the way, is closing her digital store at the end of November - so rush over and grab your digi's before it's too late!):

Here's a close up of the cute image:

And here is my card - I decided to make a 5.5 x 5.5" card for this challenge:

I added some stickles glitter to the pom-pom and rim of his hat, added some rhinestones and a large dew drop on the snowflake bunches!! Very fun!! Totally in love with this new paper pack from Echo Park called 'tis the Season :)

  2. Hi Lori to one Canadian to another! So happy to see your card in our pool over at Doodle Pantry. Love your card and your take on the sketch is amazing. Love the clean crisp feeling of your card and the coloring is perfect. Checked out your Dad's organizers and I am really thinking about purchasing one from his Etsy store. They are amazing and would help to get inks and such out of containers and in view. Thanks for sharing about that on your blog. He does amazing work. Thanks again for playing along with us at Doodle Pantry Challenge # 40. Hugs Dana
