I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

NOT!

For my family, Christmas together means 1 hour commutes for most of us, except for the one who is hosting. So I don't dream of a white Christmas, I dream of clear dry roads for everyone who has to drive an hour or more on the highway to spend the day with their families.

That is my wish, and this is my card, Stamping Bells's snowman and a cardinal by Mo Manning.


As always, I stamped this chilly guy on Bella's BESTEST paper in black memento ink and in addition to a combo of warm and cool grey's for the snowman these are the other copic colours I used:

G40, 82, YG67, 63, 99

All shading was done with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and I am pretty sure I used my cerulean blue around the snowman to celebrate prisma bringing back that colour. It is one of my fav's!

Our challenge next week is a sketch which will come in handy for those last minute holiday cards you need to get finished. I know I still have about 10 to make so I'll be sure to whip up a couple using this classic and timeless sketch! I LOVE a sketch challenge!

On a final note, today is Friday here in Southwestern Ontario and a Friday night in the Heavens household means that I am gonna get a break from cooking and we will either go out for pizza or get Thai take out and I'll spend the evening with my art supplies and my journal coming up with something creative for Emily's AJ Monday.

till next time, Linda

Oh my! This is darling! Love your shading on your image! It's perfect!
I'm with you on snow and travel. I'd rather deal with cold temps and dry roads than the other way around ;) Safe travels to you and your family this holiday season!
