Let it SNOW

Are you having cold weather where you live? Cold weather is here and, in my neck of the woods, that means snow will soon be here as well. Every year but one that I can remember we have had our first snow the week of Thanksgiving. Temps are indicating we could be right on schedule this year too, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. I love it..... from the warmth of my cozy little house, that is. LOL

So with snow not far off, I decided to use the cute snowman doll from the Scrapping Cottage-Peachy Keen collaboration release. He looks so cute on this bookmark I made for one of the grandgirls. I love the snowman's cute chubbyness and sweet little face. The scan isn't the best but you can see the full project this way.


I used my white pen to add snow to the trees, and topped it with Martha Stewart coarse crystal glitter. I used the glitter on the trim of his hat too. And for final touches, I used my copics to add a little more depth and shadow, and for his rozy cheeks!

Bookmarks are so quick and easy to make. And fun too! Go on and give it a try. :)
