Do you have enough snow for Lulu?

Hello folks! Were you able to stay warm this weekend? It's been colder than heck in South Eastern Michigan. No snow though. Well, lots of little fluffy flakes blowing around but nothing has stuck yet.

Now Lulu here, sure likes having an accumulation of snow so she can make her snowman. And isn't he cute? This is aptly titled Lulu's Snowman from Stamping Bella. I ordered this the day of Emily's release and I was thrilled to have this waiting on my doorstep when I returned from the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Echo Park paper defined the colors I would use and I have to tell you that I loved making this card.

I colored Lulu with copics but added shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. I've found that Bella's Bestest paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink work great for the foundation so I started there. Snowflakes were added with liquid pearls and the blanket of snow was made by adding glitter. I've packed up almost all of my ribbon - I know, silly move, but I've been a pack rat for so many years that I am finding odds and ends I've saved from packages anticipating that I could reuse them down the road. And look what I found, this great piece of hunter green grossgrain ribbon. I actually think it came from an Eddie Bauer box - woo hoo. It's recycled and matches perfectly.

I'm off to pack another box or two.... Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
