In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman!

Have you checked out DRS Designs new Winter and Holiday stamps? They were just released this past Wednesday, and I swear each release gets better then the last! I've been playing with these new stamps all week & I'm lovin' it!

I used the new Snowman Head stamp to create my challenge card for this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch. DRS Designs is sponsoring all of their September sketch challenges.

I colored this cute Frosty image with markers. His face was first colored with some gray Copic markers and then I went over it with a white Prismacolor Pencil. Then I gave him rosy cheeks using a pink pencil and blended it with Gamsol. I stamped snowflake background with blue ink, and split up the sentiment, which is actually one stamp. (I love the versatility of unmounted stamps!)

Of course, I am unable to enter the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Drawing, but you can! Doing so will give you a chance at a $50 Gift Certificate to DRS Designs!!!!!!! Hurry, deadline for this challenge is this upcoming Tuesday Sept. 8th, at Midnight!

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink French Blue, SU! Ballet Blue
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by American Crafts
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Bic Markers, Copic Marker C1, Nesties, Martha Stewart Snowflake Border Punch, Ribbon by Joann's Holiday Inspirations, Brands by Joann's Scrap Essentials,
Finished Card Size: 5" x 6 1/8"

Don't forget, our Cards For Heros Holiday Card Drive is currently underway and on Monday, the DRS Designs blog will feature cards made by the DT specifically for the drive.

Only 112 days til Christmas. Have you started creating your Holiday cards yet?
