Brrr! It's Cold!

Happy Sunday to you!  Loving that I have a three day weekend to enjoy.  I hope you are doing something you love today!
No snow here in Virginia but it's cold enough for it.   I actually hope it holds off for the next week because we have a special birthday party on Saturday and that could throw a wrench into the plan. MY card for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge of ribbons is this little fellow who is  making a huge snowball.  The digi is from Digi My World and can be found here.  I did paper piecing for his outfit and then colored his face and hair in with Copics.  Next I added flocking to the hat brim and the pom pom at the end of his hat.  The giant snowball was colored and then covered with glistening snow.  The sentiments are  SRM Stickers Winter 51009.  I love how transparent they are and never have issues with them peeling up.  The papers for this project were entirely from my scrap bucket/bag.  I started the base by stamping with  speckled dots in black and then added layers.  The snowflake trim is my Making Memories which I picked up years ago.  I tied silver Stampin' Up cord around that several times and tied a bow. 

Hope you will join us at Sentimental Sundays for the challenge!
