Snowbody Else Like You

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday. We had a really nice time with the whole family together on Christmas Eve. The very last gift that was opened was an engagement ring for Chesney from her boyfriend Rob. It was a very sweet moment that I'm glad I was able to be a part of, and it looks like we have a wedding to look forward to!

There is a new release scheduled today at Squigglefly, but since Ashley is still away visiting her in laws for Christmas the release may not take place until later. I haven't been over there yet this morning to check!

You know snowmen don't have to be used for Christmas, they are great for any kind of cards in the winter time, and I thought this gift bearing snowman from Cheryl Alger would be perfect for someone having a birthday in January!

I colored this with copic markers and printed the sentiment with my computer. I hand doodled around the flower brads.

I got some really fun craft stuff for Christmas! I got a whole set of copic spica markers, some refills for some copic colors, some of the new pastel copic markers, some quickie glue pens, lots of different embellishments, some ribbons, and some refills for my tape gun! I was also given a couple of gift certificates to Hobby Lobby, so I can look forward to fun shopping days! Today I hope to get the house back in order and spend some fun time playing with my new goodies!

I hope you have a wonderful day too, and thanks for looking!
