A Fresh Batch of Snowballs!

Hello all! I'm late in getting my post out...apparantly I forgot to set the post. Aren't these little snowballs too cute! Pretend Snowman was designed by the very talented Heather who is launching her new digi stamp company Fresh Brewed Designs. This is also her first blog hop for her company and I was sooo honored that she had asked me to join. She has some uber fun images so you need to go check her out and check out the rest of the hop gals to see more inpiration for this snow buddy line. For my card I kept it pretty simple, but that gorgeous designer paper is from K&Company Christmas collection. So it adds a lot of interest to the background. I also added the black ribbon with white polka dots to draw your eyes across the card. Only a little coloring required on this card and I did that with copics. You may have noticed the bottom snowball has on green gloves. Originally they were all going to have different gloves, but I was focused on coloring the gloves on the twigs and realized after I colored them that the arms belonged to different snowballs. LOL. The little guy on the bottom looks mischievous anyway so maybe it is good that he stands out a little more.

Please go and visit the rest of the on the hop because Heather is giving away a free image to one person on each blog and a grand prize of $20 to her shop. You don't want to miss out so get hopping! Your next stop Callie!

Mary, this image is so darn cute! Love the paper. At first look at the paper I thought maybe you were doing the quilted look from SCS's Thursday's Ways to Use It challenge. LOL Congrats to Heather on the inaugeration of her darling digi stamps. She picked a winner when she asked you to be on her design team.
