I made this card

I used this sweet, sweet image called Winter friends.
It´s a From The Heart Stamps. This stamp is also the stamp of the month at From The Heart Stamps. That means that if you play along with it - you get a new stamp for free for next month. Great!!! I know!
 I have decided to play along with their sketch #74 too. It look like this:

I followed it pretty well. I only changed where I changed the paper. This was so the snowman and tree would be seen better. I have used a die for the tree and then added glitter snow. Like the 3-d effect this make. Also used a new to me embossing folder - and I love it! Found out that the new theme at Simon Says is Embossing so this should fit perfect for that.

I have coloured the image with ProMarkers and Faber Castel pencils.

I love books at the moment I read a Swedish author called Fredrik Backman. This is his first book and it´s called "A man called Ove" .

En man som heter Ove

This is well worth reading. It´s easy to read, fun (I find myself sitting smiling all the time) and a very well told love story...

 Meljen´s Challens Blog has a challenge called Bookworm. You have to find inspiration from a book. I would love to do something from "A man called Ove" but since Melissa was so kind and provided an image from Alice in Wonderland. I decided to use that one. I combined it with another image from Meljen´s called Big Sweater Kid. I had this one for a while but have not used it before. I used fall colours to match his big sweater.

I used a paper with lots of text on it (like a book). I sprayed it with a glimmer mist from Tattered Angels it shimmers beautiful but unfortunately you can´t see that very well. I have coloured with ProMarkers and Faber Castel pencils. Also added some stickles and a few dew drops.

Also added a sentiment freebie from Create with TLC. I thought this was perfect with a birthday book theme...

I found a new to me challenge blog called 2 Cute Ink. Their theme this week is AG so I´ll have a go. will you?

Not really like the skin colours but I have worked on another image and that one turned out better I think.  I like the way her swimming suit turned out though. I coloured it using orange colours then added the white with a gel pen.

I have used two different dies. The Sea horse from Cheery Lynn and Clouds from Joy. All papers are from Fancy Pant´s paper pack called Beach Bum. Think they are perfect summer papers. I also added some dew drops and really like how they turned out.
