Christmas Cards and a DT Call

This is only like THE MOST WONDERFUL time of the year!
I love the Christmas season...the energy, the shopping, the weather, the food :)
And, I have a brother who was born on Christmas Day (love you Nate).

I'm not only making cards, but also sharing them in hopes of joining a new DT. 

This week's inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches 367.

My favorite holiday icon is the snowman, so I couldn't help but color this little guy.
He's from The Alleyway Stamps (no longer in business, sad face).
I dry embossed some snowflakes in vellum and added more 
to the background with clear versa mark ink.

I painted over the Copic coloring on his earmuffs and scarf with Nuevo glitter drops 
(a new favorite thing I'm doing).

In case you missed my Christmas card last week on Instagram (I was on vacay in the Cozumel), here's a non-traditional color combo that I love, also using FMS as an inspiration!

Hope you're enjoying your holiday season and thanks for stopping by!
