Snowy Hugs for Tilda

Wow, it's almost December!  Where does November go every year?  I haven't been around much lately, I have a few big projects in the works, and my house... well, we shouldn't go there!

This week at Paper Sundaes we are challenging you to 'Adorn Those Corners!'  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.  I hope you'll come and join us!

I am so in love with this winter's Magnolia Christmas release!  My card today uses Snowy Hugs, one of my favorites.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I *had* to have it!


I had to add some puffy paint on their fur trim, of course!  For the snow, I added some tinsel glitter from Martha Stewart.  You can see it a bit better in the closeup:

The snowflake paper is new this year from Echo Park, called Everybody Loves Christmas.  The aqua paper with the diamond pattern is from last year, by Kaisercraft.

Copic colour list:  Skin- E000, 00.  Pants, mitt, hat- BG10, 11, 13, 15, 9.  Coat- RV00, R81, 83.  Broom top- Y22, YR24, E34.  Broom handle- E40, E41.  Shoes, hair- E30, 34, 35.  Buttons- C3, 5, 7.  Shading on snowman- W0, 1, and chalk for cheek blush.
