It's a Christmas Bellariffic Friday

Well, here we are again for another friday bellariffic challenge.  Where do the weeks go? The weather has been fantastic this week (in the 50's), it's hard to believe we are almost in the middle of November - but I'm not complaining, I'll take this weather over snow any day!

This weeks challenge was a Christmas/Holiday card.  Now how easy is that?
So I share with you this week - A Snowman and a Cardinal by Mo! I'm a sucker for snowman, so as soon as Emily released this one, into my cart it went.

I colored this image up when I was in Bellaland this past Saturday.  As usual image was stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento. I colored this with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. This was a fast image to color- will probably do a few more of these. I used my square s/binder die to cut out the snowman and for the rose colored c/s I ran it through my cuttlebug using the spots and dots embossing folder. The DP paper is from my 6 x 6 pack of Wassail from Basic Grey - yes I still have lasts years pad, I'm a paper hoarding and hate to use it, but it was time to cave.  To finish it off I add lots of glitter, used my glaze pen on his nose and buttons and then used some Bella glitter dots to dress it up.

For next weeks challenge we have a sketch for you done by Cathabella .  So if you like sketch challenges then this is for you. Play along and email your card
 to Emily by thursday night.  You never know, you could win some bella bucks.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Here is the sketch:
