Here's Shana's wonderful sketch:
For my card this week I chose to use a Bildmalarna stamp called "Mimosa Christmas Tree" and coloured her with copics.
I used this cool new Snow Marker by Marvy Uchida that I got to add some "fluff" around her hat & boots and then heated it to make it puff up.  I have to say it was super easy to use and with Christmas just around the corner I'm sure you will see this on more of my future posts!  I added glossy accents to the ornaments that Mimosa is holding & some of my favourite ribbon which I finally used by Bow Easy on, added a sentiment and then made a big mistake!!!!  I've been using the sookwang tape to put all my cards together because it holds so well however if you accidently drop your image where you don't want to stick it you are SOL!!!  Or you can add a snowflake to cover up the paper you ripped when pulling said image off and moving it.  This sounded like a good idea at the time but realize after that it doesn't totally match.  Oh well,  hopefully I've learned from my mistake and won't let it happen again but doubt it!!  

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, the weather here has been extremely cold but beautiful so I can't complain.
