Sketchy Snowman

Good morning everyone! Yesterday evening we got to bring our cat home and he was more than ready to come home. The vet said he made a full recovery and she was very impressed with how quickly he recovered. She doesn't anticipate any future problems, but sometimes this can become a chronic condition and he may have to be put on a special diet if that happens.

Riley was sure interested in him. She kept going up to him and smelling him. We didn't notice her missing him while he was gone, but she was sure glad to have him home!

Yesterday was the sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and I wanted to play along, so I made this

(click to enlarge)

I used one of the adorable snowmen by Cheryl Alger and colored with Copic markers. I did a little sponging around the edges of the panel. The sentiment was computer generated. I put together two of my crocheted snowflakes to create an even fancier snowflake and added some stickles to it.

I hope you have a wonderful day today, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Adorable snowman! Snowmen are my favorite stamps, probably because I like winter so much, lol. Love your snowflake, crocheting is also a favorite passtime of mine! I'm so glad your cat is back home where he belongs. Try to keep cool and don't melt away.
