Snowman Hugs

I thought I would give you a break from stars today!LOL! This snowman was one of the images I posted about coloring while Madison was home. I knew I wanted to use wintergreen dp so I just pulled colors from the dp to color my snowman. Well Roxie decided to throw me a loop today by giving us a diamond shape for the main image. I decided to go ahead with it and try to make it work.

Its so funny how you can start on a card and the card seems to take on a life of its own!LOL!! I had no particular person in mind while making this card but as I turned the image to make it work for the sketch it looked like the snowman was running off the card for a hug!LOL! I instantly thought of my stepdad and my kids and their "GROUP HUGS!!!" The kids love it! So this card now will be to Papa from the kids with a big snowman hug sentiment inside.

Okay onto the deets...I colored the snowman using my SU markers and sky ink w/aquapainter. I used sky for the snow and to outline the snowman. The snow falling and the outline of the snowman are covered in diamond stickles. I (hmph) doodled around the frame!LOL! The main image is layered w/celery and arthichoke. The dp is layered w/soft sky and celery. I applied silver brads to each corner. The card base is textured soft sky.
