Winter Wonderland

Hello sweet friends.  Are you managing to stay warm?  We have been having bitterly cold temps here the last couple of days and it's suppose to stay that way all week.  While I may not be enjoying the cold weather, it looks like this sweet girl loves it ...

This little cutie is Nikki and you can find her over in the Saturated Canary shop.  I've always wanted to alter a gift bag and thought Nikki would be perfect for this wintery paper.  The paper is Winterings by Little Yellow Bicycle and I love colors and patterns in this collection.  I colored Nikki with copics and colored pencils and added some Glamour dust to the heart on her scarf and the icy ground.  I applied Liquid Applique to her legwarmers and mittens and used Liquid Pearls around the image.  I added a big bow, tag, and glittery snowflakes to finish my giftbag.  This gift bag was so fun to make - I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them on my blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Anita
