Jolly Snowman - Happy 2014

Hello, everyone.  A big, warm welcome my newest followers - it is so nice to have you here.  Today I am featuring an image from Dragonsmoore - Spyder's Other Corner called Jolly Snowman - isn't he just adorable!  I have two favourite digi designers - and Spyder is one of them.  Her images just make me smile, and I find them a joy to work with.  She has freebies every week at Spyder's Corner.  And don't forget - I am giving away some candy of Spyder's images tomorrow - January 1.  Two of my lucky followers will each win a prize of 3 digis - go here to enter.

On this card, I fussy-cut the snowman, coloured him with Prismacolor pencils, and added Diamond Stickles on the white parts of his hat.  For the sentiment I used a freebie from Delicious Doodles that you can find here.   I fussy-cut, coloured lightly with a brown Prismacolor pencil, and added Clear Liquid Embossing to give it some dimension.  I think it has a small crack though, oh well, maybe I put it on too thickly.  The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn, and I embossed the white cardstock with Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  The deer die is from Marianne Design, and I added a glittery tree and two snowflakes with tiny pearls, all from Dollarama.  The ribbon is from Offray, and check out the triple- looped bow that I made with my brand-new Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker.  It was a gift from my lovely friend Debi - thank you, Debi - I love it!  Here's the sketch I followed from Seems a Little Sketchy:
