I guess I have to keep my sister, mutnik!!! I have been trying to get in a challenge this week, and this awesome image from Faith at http://designed2delightdigishop.blogspot.com/
was perfect for two challenges. On the sketch challenge, I couldn't figure out what to do with the spot the top hat is at so I called sis to see what she would do.......of course.....the first idea was to move the head of the snowman over to the edge and cut around the image. I kept trying to tell her that it was already layered and I was not going to start over!!! Then she said put a hat there. Light bulb went off in my head because I had just gone through some Judith stamps and actually knew where to look for the top hat!!! Miracles do happen!!!
For the new technique I used pearl ex for the snow. It glimmers beautifully in real life. I have to apologize to my camera.....found the book of insrtuctions (duh) and did NOT know that new fancy digital cameras need you to hold the button down lightly for focus (not blurry anymore) then push to take the picture. The days of turning into an ice sculpture trying to take a focused picture are over!!!
Thank you for looking. Comments appreciated.

I was going to type 'fabulously cute' but I see Debzi (my fellow Canuck) already used my phrase! But I concur that this is fabulously cute! Love the image and you've done it proud... Glad to hear you've figured out your camera - it's been way too cold here to even think about taking pics outside but relief is on the way (they say...) :)

Sweet card.....Adorable image........nice job coloring and I love the dp. Like how you shadowed the blue around the snowman. It looks so natural. I would also like to thank you very much for leaving such a nice comment on my Pure Innocence card. It was so nice of you to take the time to do that. Thanks again.

Oh, can I have this one? I'm just like you: I just come out and ask for something. I love the combined creativity of both russian spys on this one, girl. Oh, when you russian spys get together, there's no telling what can happen. Luckily, your collaboration today resulted in one fabulous fun and creative card. Just think of what might have happened if the two of you were discussing world affairs! Love, love love this card. It's just as cute as can be. You're on a roll, girl. Dont stop now. Hey, have you gone back to the world of the working women? Or are you still just sitting around eating bons and bons and watching as the world turns?
