BRRRR... ARE YOU CHILLY ?

Hello Peeps,
I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend ?
Is it chilly where you are ? Here I am sunny today and it's a warm 18 degrees :-) The almond blossoms are all popping out so I hope we now don't get a cold spell down from the North to nip them all off !!

It's weird doing a chilly card today, but I have coloured up my monthly freebie I got at FROM THE HEART STAMPS. It is called  " Snowman & Cocoa " and he is part of the monthly progressive freebie Challenge. If you use the free image in the Challenge -  you get a new free one the following month for the next Challenge. :-D I must say he looks very cozy in his outfit and with a cup of hot cocoa. Not for me though - he can keep it as I hate that stuff !!!! 





I coloured him up with Promarkers and used a snippet of blue card to make a frame. I went all around it with the wedge end of 3 different colours of blue Promarkers and then dragged the Blender all round in lines to see what effect I got.
The snowflakes were a little giftette from a dear friend. :-D
The background was made using my Crafters' Companian "A Little Bit Nordic " 6 x 6 embossing folder and I lightly ran a blue ink pad over the top to pick out the pattern.

Thanks for dropping by xxxxxxxxx

  7. Don't rub it in! Yes, it's chilly here! And more snow to follow over the weekend. I am tired of winter already! But I digress...I love your card, Ike! I have this guy too but haven't coloured him yet - your colouring looks amazing! Those snowflakes look great on this card - nice to see them! Love your embossing folder too! You hate cocoa? Then what's your hot drink of choice... coffee... tea? Inquiring minds want to know!!! I drink herbal tea - chocolatey chai is my favourite - I'm drinking some right now!
