Winter Hug

Hi everyone! What an absolutely gorgeous weekend we had here! I hope that all of you were able to experience some beautiful weather too. It looks like we will be having pretty good weather all week long; highs in the low eighties and lows in the low to mid sixties! Pretty near perfect in my book!

Well today is Christmas card Monday and I have a pretty cute card to show you today, at least I like it!

(click to enlarge)

I didn't use traditonal Christmas colors which I like, but it also lets it be used as just a winter time card too. I colored the image with copic markers, highlighted with a white gel pen, and added stickles to the snow and flocking to the top of the boots. The image is from Squigglefly and is called Sara In Love

here are the colors I used to color her with

I used a little metal snowflake charm from Making Memories on the ribbon knot. It was a fun card to make!

I was able to complete a card for Stef's color challenge on the Card Universe group over the weekend. I'll show that to you tomorrow. I also completed a few other challenge cards, but you'll have to wait to see them later in the week.
Today is Squigglefly's challenge, and I'm going to go see what it is right now! Hope you have time to take a look too! Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
