Top Hat Snowman

Hello, everyone.  A very warm welcome to my two newest followers, Emma and Cindy - so nice to have you!  I am back today to share a Christmas card I made with one of the adorable images from Dragonsmoore.   You probably know by now I am a huge fan of Spyder's images.  I just won this sweet snowman from her yesterday and couldn't wait to get him coloured and onto a card.  This cutie is called Top Hat Snowman and he was a lot of fun to colour with my Prismacolor pencils.  I also added Stickles around his body and along the snow to give him a frosty look. 

I want to sing the praises of Lyn (Spyder) because she is a kind and generous lady.  Did you know that she has an ongoing contest?  If you use one of her images on a card and enter it in a challenge, you automatically win a digi from the 99p images in her store.  If you're a Top 3 pick, the prize is 3 digis, and if you win a challenge, you get to pick 5 digis from her store.  So just by making this card and entering it in some challenges, I can email Lyn and request a free digi - how cool is that!  I hope she's not getting tired of me stalking her LOL.  You can play too - she has a weekly freebie on her blog:  Spyder's Corner.   And don't forget I'm giving away some candy of Spyder's images here

Now back to my card... I used a freebie sentiment from Desert Diva (thank you, Hannelie), and I embossed the white panel with Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  The lacy ribbon is from May Arts, green ribbon is Offray, and green glittery ribbon is from Dollarama.  The snowman charm is from my stash, and the big snowflake is from Dollarama.  I followed this sketch at Your Next Stamp, but I flipped it:
