Guest Designer!


I started the year with a happy surprise when my card was one of the 4 winners for Merry Monday's last challenge of 2013.  Today I join the Merry Monday DT with my snowman--actually, snowgirl card.  
This is a limited edition stamp I got in 1997 & have hardly used--shame on me!  I think she's adorable paper pieced with these sweet MME papers. Her face is covered with Stickles Frosted Lace--great for snow--& I used it on the ball on her hat.  After it dried I lightly added color to the ball with a marker & then a bit more Stickles.  A COPIC marker was used to color the gems. 
Hope I've inspired you to join in the challenge this week. Be sure to check out the fabulous work of the DT & other guest designers.  I made the frame from a scrap & used pp snippets, so I'm entering Pixies Snippets Playground.

Edited to add: My first time playing in the challenge at Just Us Girls.
