A Snowman

I took a day off today.. totally unplanned... I was heading off to work this morning... in a traffic jam, as usual, and then decided to just turn around and head back home... wooops !!! Husband was ever so unpleased with me :||| Anyways.. you must have guessed where I went when I was home... he he :)) In my craft room of course.

The first card I did is heading off somewhere abroad...  won't be showing it off for now, because I don't want the person receiving it seeing it.... just in case she pops by here, you know ;))

and so this is the second one I did...  wooo heeee ...... this is life :)) I think he's the cutest snowman ever ... I love snowmen for Christmas Cards, and this is not the last one I'm showing off this week. This one is from The Stamping Boutique and I coloured him with my promarkers.  The paper were some remaining wrapping paper from last year!!! Unfortunately I love keeping scraps, well at least I found a use to this one now.
I did some snow again and added lots of sparkle with glitter and also with my glitter gel pen. There's lots of it on the red stripes of his scarf, hat and shoes... must click picture though to see it. The sentiment I wrote it myself with my Letraset fineliner.
For my card today I followed this sketch.
and I am entering my card in these challenges...

Hi Dora

Great minds and all that, I took a day off today as well. I needed to catch up on samples for the NEC and a class, but still fun.
