Love You Snow Much


I think this adorable Snowy Hug is one of my favorite Magnolia images! Good news too, it is now back in stock at 7 Kids College Fund. It is colored with copics and then stickles were used for the snow and on the trim of the hats and coat. I also used a spica clear glitter pen around the snowman but that is not showing too well in the photos. Around the edges of the patterned paper, I used picket fence crackle paint. I really like the look of it but I need to improve a bit in my application of it. Also, I found out that the crackle paint chips off when I sewed after applying. So, I will either not sew when I use it or maybe try to apply after sewing.


Detail shot

Don't forget that there is still time to play along with the 7 Kids Challenge which is Hot or Cold. As a matter of fact, my card today is another sample today to hopefully inspire you :).
