Well I hope the weather today isn't an inclination of what is to come because boy is it cold outside!! It's in the 50's with a VERY strong Northern wind (we're even under a wind advisory) and down right chilly. Lucky for me there is no where I have to go and I can stay warm and toasty indoors getting some projects done - oh and I'll keep sipping on my coffee, chai tea or hot apple cider all day!! Hubby leaves town for a conference this weekend and Abby will probably stay at Grandma & Papa's for a night so I might actually get a lot of stuff accomplished this weekend. Either that or I'll get some much needed rest - I've been fighting some illness and figure it's just some little bug I received for all those runny, yucky noses I'm around at the preschool!! I think I'll see about purchasing stock in hand sanitizer as it's my new best friend!! :o)

Since it's chilly out I thought I'd share a wintery card. I'm a huge collector of snowmen - love em, gotta have em all! So when I saw the new set, Merriest Wishes from TAC I just new I had to have it! I mean snowmen and angels - hello, AWE-SOME!

I used Stardust Clear Gelly Pen to accent the wings but I'm not sure you can see it very well. I love how you have the control of a pen to add shimmer exactly where you want it. I used my colored pencils and OMS to color her in.

The DP is from Lily Anna SWIC and the cardstocks are from the Toodle Loo collection. I just got my online shopping website through TAC so you can order anytime, day or night, 24 hours a day and have it shipped directly to your door! If you click on the supplies you'll be directed straight to the ordering site. If you have any questions just let me know!

Well that's it for me - guess I better get out of the pj's and start the day. I hope you have a warm Friday that's full of great joy! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

love, love, love your card and I'm a fellow adorer of all things snowmen (except for snow/ice on the roads). :) Hope all is going well for you!

Would you mind sending that weather my way? I wouldn't mind taking it off your hands at all!! It's still hot and humid here - in shorts & a tank today. Love the little snowman card. Love the scallops and how you did the sentiment!

Nicola said...

Wow Michelle, this is just the most adorable snowman I have ever see. Love your colouring of her .. perhaps I should have said snowperson but that don´t sound right. Super sentiment and colour combo.
