Blog Hop: Warm Winter Wishes

This little gingerbread house from the "Holiday Cheer" StampTV kit is the perfect backdrop for Carolyn's little snowman from "Warm Winter Wishes", you will have so much fun putting them in scenes together! I used a piece of Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP behind for a swirling blizzard and scalloped oval die cut for my greeting like it was puffing out of the little chimney. I had a blast coloring both of these little cuties!! :)



I used a rotary cutter to make some banks of snow from Pure Luxury White and popped them up to add a lot of depth to the scene. All images are colored with Copics. Mat is Rocket Red.
