Frosty the Snowman

Happy Wednesday to all of you.  I was blog hopping a few days ago and ran across Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog.  The challenge for December is Anything Winter.  I really wanted to enter this challenge but all my Elisabeth Bell winter images were Christmas stamps.  So, I had to go shopping and look at what I found!

I absolutely love snowmen and when I saw this image I knew I had to have it.  The image is called Frosty the Snowman and I purchased it from Elisabeth Bell's Digi Gallery.  I think this image of the children building their snowman is just too stinkin' ca-ute!  Anyway, one of my best friends keeps a stash of cocoa mixes in her desk at work because her office is always so cold during the winter.  She keeps them in a little ugly plastic sandwich bag ... yuck!  We're meeting for lunch later this week so I decided to make her a pretty holder for her cocoa mixes.  She loves it when I make her crafty things. 

I colored the image with copics and colored pencils and added Glamour Dust for all the sparkle.  I've used various punches for my snowflakes and added Glamour Dust and pearls.  I used the tutorial that Jodi (Inked Inspirations) shared on her blog (with an adjustment to accomodate the thicker packets of cocoa mix).

Here's a picture of the inside.  I've had these snowflake brads in my stash for a long time.  I love being able to use up something I've had forever.
Thanks for stopping by today!
