HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday. As most of you know I am still traveling. I spent Christmas week in Alabama visiting my oldest daughter and family. This week I am in Colorado Springs visiting my youngest daughter and family. My grandaughters (11 and 13) enjoy crafting and making cards so I was able to finish this one last night.

It snowed about 15 inches here yesterday and the grandkids were outside building a snowman and having a snowball fight and this image just seem to fit the mood. It is "First Snowball of Winter" from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Sampler. I love the look on her face. She is colored with Copics. The snow and the accent on her jacket were made using Flower Soft - Polar White with a little Stardust Stickles added.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Something New (stamp,paper)
Creative Inspirations - Something New
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Celebrate Friendship

I finished off the card with a few punched snowflakes with Kaisercraft Rhinestones.
