Snowman Time

We are definitely into winter here, and have about 3 inches or so of snow already.....and some has already melted!  We've even hit the -25C mark a few days!  BRRRRRRR.

This cold has got me thinking of snowmen and I made this card as a sample for the copics class I was teaching yesterday at Scrapbookers Anonymous in Winnipeg. (waving to Marilyn and all the wonderful women there.)

I have seen the layout on a blog somewhere but I didn't save the address, so if you know who originated this layout, please let me know so I can credit her here.  It's a gorgeous layout isn't it?

I used spellbinders metal sheets and embossed it with a cuttlebug folder.  I adhered it to the cardstock base and then worked on the snoman.

I used copics to color the snowman--R27,29, YR68, B000, BG000,G0000, B0, W0 and the blender pen.  This image is a Mo Manning image available here.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all your comments. They are very much appreciated.
