Building a snowman

Building a snowman is definitely childs play.  I remember how cold I would get and still not care.  I am definitely too old to be wanting to get out in the snow like that now!

I can, however, make a card about it and thoroughly enjoy it!  LOL


The images and the sentiment are all from Fresh Brewed Designs
The coloring is copic markers
The snowflake is a MS punch.
Glossy accents on the ornaments
Sentiment is on a Spellbinder die cut banner
The papers and ribbon are from my stash.

I printed the trees in green ink on my printer (I love that I can change the color that I print the digi in, makes it much easier to color).  The kids with the snowman were printed and colored several times.  Then, I cut them out and pieced them together for added dimension.
The snow banks (hard to see) that the trees sit on are made with a torn piece of paper and some sky blue Memento ink.
