Snowmen are COOL!

Happy Thursday!

**note...#2 Son drew the snowman features on the ice cream for me, he's so sweet!

We're still enjoying the snow and thought the theme over @ the ATS Wednesday Challenge: Snowmen was perfect!

I was inspired...


Stamps: KennyK (Troublemaker)
Papers: SU! cs, BasicGrey dp
Ink: Copic/Prisma markers
Other: hole punch, paper piercer,
Stickles

Isn't this an awesome image?  Really fun coloring it!  I debated about making her hair continue inside the hoodie, most don't, but I like coloring hair so I did.  And to reward my decision my E37 decided to run out of ink!  lol

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Blessings!


Here are the challenges...
