Under the Wire

Good morning all my crafty friends!  Here in Jersey we're getting our first snow of the season! LOVE it!  What a great day to bake and make some Christmas cards!!

I used the current sketch over at the MFT blog as inspiration for my card today.  It was so much fun to play with!

Here is the sketch #149 for this week:

 And here is my creation using the PI Heart Warmer Boy stamp set :

This little cutie is colored in Copics and has some Sharpie white poster paint pen to accent his cheeks.  The snowdrift is some glittered cardstock from DCWV.  I also used some new papers from the Santa and Friends Paper Studio collection.  I added some Diamond Stickles to his snowballs and Liquid Pearls behind him for "snow".  I cut out a snowflake using my Cricut Expression and finished it off with a button from my stash.  I tied it all together with some red and white twine from American Crafts.
