Let's Build a Snowman!

Oh how I wish it would snow!!!  I LOVE snow and want it to come to Virginia soon.  We're expected to get RAIN tomorrow, but that's NO FUN!  I made a card today to get me even MORE in the MOOD for SNOW!!!  Nothing's better with snow than a little minty hot chocolate too!

I used my new A2 Embossing Folder by Basic Grey to emboss the bg paper...It matches her tights!
 So this little card will be sent to one of my family members in Iowa or Minnesota.  They are having a HECK of a WINTER again and I'm so jealous of their snow adventures.  I wish I could head over there and hitch a ride on a snowmobile!!!  Anyway, I just got a few Your Next Stamp stamps in the mail last week and I just love these little girls.  They are so fun to color with my Copics so I had to buy some.  Since I was given the opportunity to be a guest designer last month, I thought it was only fitting to purchase some of the awesome new collection!  So you'll see more of these wintery cards posted in weeks to come. 

To make this card, I stamped Ellie Building a Snowman on Copic XpressIT Card with Memento Black Ink.  I then colored the image using a TON of Copic colors (they're listed below).  I also used the sentiment "Let it Snow" from the set called Penguin Greetings and you'll see something cute with that set in a few days!

I loved the colors in the paper pack I received last week so I just had to use the colors again in a Christmas card this year.  For some reason, the plum and sky blue color just speak to me this year...I love these colors together for Christmas. 

I added some white snowballs using my multiliner pen.  I removed color using my colorless blender. 
Here are the Copic Deets:
B0000, 00, 02; BG0000, 01; G00;  BV0000, 000, 00, 13; V04, 06; E00, 09, 11, 25, 31, 53, 55; YR02, 20, 61, Colorless Blender, Multiliner .03 

Have a HAPPY DAY!!! See you tomorrow.
