Winter Hugs

(**Please scroll down for my Kraftin' Kimmie and All That Scraps posts**)

Hello everyone.  Today starts a new challenge over on the By LORI Designs Challenge Blog.   

Our new challenge is "winter" so I have used this cute snowman from the By LORI Designs shop for my card.  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and I've added a bit of Glamour Dust to give him some sparkle.  There's Glossy Accents on his carrot nose and black glaze pen on his coal buttons.  I also added some tiny Liquid Pearl dots around this cutie.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Sentiments set.  There are so many cute sentiments in this set!  My layout is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 173

Please be sure you stop by the By LORI Design Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the dt has created.  I hope you find some time to play along in our challenge.  You don't have to use a BLD image but we would love it if you did.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
