Hug a Snowman Today

     Too bad we don't have some of this snow down here in the south.  It would make suffereing through this cold worth it.  It's probably been 15 years or so since we had enough to accumulate and actually stay on the ground!  Guess we need to talk to Heat Miser like in that old cartoon. :)  That one's a favorite of me and my daughter.  We love the song--I'm Mr. Heat Miser, I'm Mr. Sun, etc.  Yes I'm dating myself, but I bet a lot of you know what I'm talking about too.  LOL
     This sweet little image is from Fred, She Said.  I've used my Copics but argh, I'm having such a hard time with the blending and shading.  I'll keep practicing and hopefully you'll keep being patient with my learning process. :)
     I'm entering the card in the following challenges:

LOVE it! I think you did a great job colouring! I have decided I wasn't too thrilled with the whole alcohol marker process that they sat there looking pretty on my shelf for months... My son has been BUGGING me to give them to HIM so they would get some use ( 72 set Neopikos ). So I did. He made a pretty colour chart and I was seriously tempted to snatch them back! I am a NICE mom. I did keep my skin toned Copics for faces.
