Mystery Time Again!

We have finished another round of Mystery swapping! (a group of us ladies over on SCS take turns hostessing rounds, send the images out to all the participating ladies, no one can say what the image is or what they are doing on their cards. The due date to have these to the hostess is the 18th of every other month. We then can post them on our blogs after the due date.) I can't wait to see what the other ladies did with this adorable Whipper Snapper image Barb sent us!
You that know me, know I rarely color images. I just don't feel I'm that good at it. So, I stick to simple, solid images most of the time. I have to say though, I enjoyed coloring this adorable snowman and his blue bird pal. Well, mine's a blue bird, everyone else's may not be! giggle

I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color the image. I also outlined the image with a Copic (BV23). You can't see it well in the picture but I used dazzling diamonds on the snowman's face and belly. I had to give him some sparkle to cheer him up :) The glittery paper came from my scrap pile (love when I can use those pieces) and I added a purple rhinestone to the sentiment along with pearls and purple satin ribbon to the side of the image.
Do you know someone that could use some cheering up? Maybe winter time gives them the blues or they've lost someone close to them recently. Or maybe it's someone that feels lonely around the holidays. I think this would be a good card to give, a good image to use for one such card. The snowman just looks like he's had it and the bird is there for him. :) That's why I chose this sentiment (SU! petite pairs).
Happy, happy Thanksgiving week! Have a wonderful holiday!

Until next time...
Blessings...
