Hello Everyone...Snowy Saturday...well, that would be nicewhile I'm typing up a snowy post at 31oC...
and it is 6.30pm...wonder if it will cool before bedtime?

Anyway, sticky, yucky heat aside, I'm here with my first official post for MISS DAISY STAMPS
and we..[ the Design Team] are show casing the SNOW BUDDYCOLLECTION..and this is exactly who this wee chap,  SNOW BUDDY 

He is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...the background took quite awhile but it came out pretty good...

A closer view and showing his gel pen snow dots...and glittered trims...

A side view...lovely thick layers and the papers are Couture Creations Vintage Christmas..and a Memory box fir tree branch die..

The sentiment is also from MISS DAISY STAMPS  called Snowman sayings 2  [just click the link]

Oh! Dear..I just melted all over the key board..I'm off to put my feet in a bucket...thanks so very much or stopping by...hope you have a wonderful weekend..

FABulous colours and papers..Chrissy
I LOve your distress and these pretty fir tree branches.
Bet it does feel strange making CC when it's hot lol.
But, such a sweet image to colour helps.
Great sentiment too.

Oh my gosh Chrissy, I love Snow Buddy! He is so adorable, and I love the blue and red combo too!! hugs :)

See, I just can't wrap my brain around Christmas in the heat. I tried it once in Texas and was jumping on a trampoline in shorts and it felt completely wrong. I despise heat anyway, but when you have to make snowy scenes on cards in a heatwave, that just seems off! LOL. Now I'm done ranting. Your card is fabulous and I love that image. That sentiment is hilarious.

It came out more than good! It's fantastic and I just love that precious image. The background is so pretty and I always forget about adding 'snow' with the gel pen. So pretty!
Stay warm! Wish we were having snow here.

Love that you colored the area around the image blue, it makes your image really stand out. Looking pretty with the white pine branches too, and they don't steel any attention from the image. Nice!!

Love these fabulous dimensional layers, and I love how the shabbied red matting echoes the scarf and hat. Great frosted fir fronds too. Beautifully done.
