Swinging Snowman

Happy Monday! I made a list this morning of all the things I wanted to get done today. Then I realized that at lunch my husband was having his work Christmas party. So I had to make a quick fruit salad this morning. I wasn't able to get everything done that I wanted to but I did cross a few things off my list. Last night I thought I would finish writing my Christmas cards but I came up 15 cards short. I thought for sure I had enough cards made this year but nope. I am back to making Christmas cards. I had hoped to move on to thank you cards this week. So guess what my card is tonight?

This is Swinging Snowman at From the Heart Stamps. I colored him with Copics and Bic markers and added a shadow around the figure with BG10 Copic. I added Diamond Stickles to his hat and boots and Wink of Stella clear pen to the red on the candy cane. So this card really sparkles. I wanted a branch to hold up the swing but didn't have a branch die so I re-purposed a flourish die. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. The background paper has a fun snowflake pattern on it and came from Michaels. I used the sketch at i {heart} sketches with a twist #131.
I am entering these challenges:
That's it for me tonight. I hope to get the Christmas tree decorated yet tonight. Back to work tomorrow. I hope your week is off to a great start.

Hugs,
Donna
