Snowcones, anyone?

Happy Monday to all of you.  We're still experiencing very high temps (mid-90's) and high humidity ... so I thought I'd make some snowcones in hopes of cooling things down a bit.  Well, ok, I didn't actually make snowcones but it looks like Dexter did!



This adorable penguin is Dexter Snow Cone from Pollycraft.  I used my copics and colored pencils to color this cool dude, and added some Glossy Accents to his beak and feet.  I don't seem to be able to make a card lately without using Glamour Dust ... love this stuff ... so there's some on his hat, the icy snowcone, and the snowflakes.  My layout is a sketch by Paula, which leads me to our latest challenge over on the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is a sketch challenge.  Don't you just love it?  I love working with sketches as I find it much easier to not have to come up with my own layout :)   


Here's the sketch.  I hope you can play along in our challenge this week.  Please be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog to see all the gorgeous cards by the DT.  Our sketch challenge is being sponsored by Paula and the prize is 10 Pollycraft digis! 



Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week.
