Are you tired of me yet?

I know, I didn't post for a bit. I got caught up in all of the holiday madness, I think. Now things are settled once again (well, as settled as they can ever be in my household) and I'm back in creating mode. I'm still trying to make cards for Operation Write Home, but in between that, I need some cards for upcoming birthdays. Are you tired of seeing all of my creations yet? I think I've posted more this month than I have in the last two months combined, and the month is only a little half over. Yay for visits from Mr. Mojo! I'm trying hard to get involved in challenges again and take advantage of his visit, that's for sure!
It snowed here near Baltimore last night. Not much, but just enough to remind us that it's winter, and to make us slip and slide a little while walking on the sidewalks. It seemed the perfect time to finally make my card for the latest Belles N Whistles challenge. This time around, they've asked us to make a "frosty" creation. I colored this image last weekend, but it wasn't until today that I actually got the chance to put her on a card. Isn't she adorable?
Image is one of Elisabeth Bell's from Belles N Whistles snowbaby collection. Again, isn't she cute? If you don't think so, look a little closer:
Come on, you gotta admit that she makes you smile! I colored her with copics, leaving some hard lines at the edges this time rather than totally blending them. Then I added some flowersoft and liquid applique to the image for texture. I cut her out with a spellbinders die and added some silver liquid pearls around the edges to make her stand out even more on my embellie-happy card. The embellishments are all from my stash. Papers are Heidi Grace. I'm entering her in the Frosty challenge, but also in hopes of joining their GDT. I'd love to be on an Elisabeth Bell DT, or two, or three....Wouldn't it be exciting to be on their DT and get to work with her new images??
