My Favorite Things Snowman & Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday.  I’m finally feeling a little better having had my tooth pulled a few days ago.  Thankfully, I was on vacation this week so really had nothing to do but heal and rest.  I changed up my normal card making and brought out my Prismacolor Pencils after I watched this video from Jennifer McQuire on coloring.  I have never felt that I could get the same vibrancy with pencils as I can with Copics, but I think it’s about practice, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.  The My Favorite Things stamp set was from a previous Operation Write Home grab bag. There are still some available so check it out.   The hill is Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders.

Snowman Heart


My second card is using the My Favorite Things Sketch 204.  I used last years Simon Says Stamp Christmas Card Kit and a MFT Snowflake and Sentiment.
