Snow Much Fun!

It's been almost a week of not blog posting and not making cards :(

But, last night before going to bed, I thought of using this image that I colored last week. It was supposed to be for the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers to use Riding Hood Red, Going Gray and Green Galore and since it's already colored, why not use last weeks sketch challenge also?

Main image is Mini-Me's Friends from Whipper Snapper Design, colored using Stampin' up re-inkers. The hat is stamped on Whisper White card stock, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional and added some liquid appliqué for the snow. The Red Riding Hood and Green Galore card stock was ran thru Cuttlebug using Snowflakes CB folder.

I hope to have more stamping time this week...crossing my fingers :)

Stamp: Mini-Me's Friends from Whipper Snapper Design

Paper: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Going Gray and Green Galore card stock from SU

Ink: Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Liqued Applique, stamping dimensionals, Cuttle Bug, Snowflakes Cuttlebug Folder
