I LOVE this Whipper Snapper snowman – I bought him after the Christmas season last year so I didn’t get to ink him up in 2009.  He’s so cute and I just love his clothing – it reminds me of vintage Santa clothing.  I also used a sentiment from one of my Anna Wight cling sets…I hope I get a chance to use every sentiment in these cute little sets this year…

In addtion to some Whipper Snapper love, I chose some cute October Afternoon paper (that I paid WAAAYYY too much for) for the card as well…

The layout is pretty simple…tried doing something a bit different with my second pattern…I think I like it – at least it mirrors the scarf on my snowman’s neck.

I used colouring pencils on this image – I wanted a softer look than I get from Copics plus I have a lot more colour variety with the pencils.  I know there are hundreds of copic colours but I’m still at the less than 40 mark with my collection.   I’ve survived this long without them so I’m content to grow my collection slowly and carefully.

Hope you’re all coming along with your 2010 Christmas cards…it’ll be here before you know it!
