Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--The Great Outdoors

The Hostess this week for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge is one of the very talented Design Team Leaders, Dorcas who chose the theme, The Great Outdoors.  You all know me and know I always tend to stretch the boundaries of the theme just a tad but I think this little sweetie named Snow Day is perfect:
The image was colored with copic markers.  I love the colors are so soft and can be either a little girl or boy but I am thinking with the ruffles of fur it is a girl.  She is having so much fun playing in the new fallen snow....Kids really enjoy it much more than us older folk!!!

I loved this Bo Bunny Blitzen dp with the sign and swirls of snow and snowflakes it was just made for this little sweetie.  I cut the Let It Snow letters with my cricut.
I was in a hurry after having company all week-end to get my card completed and had the image all colored and decided to add some stickles to the cuffs, after adding it to one I didn't like it.  When I went to wipe it off, I used a cloth with blender fluid on it....yeah I know, duh, I cut out the image and colored over the grey smear with white gel pen...if you can find the smear I will send you the card.....  So this little darling is popped up on sponge mounting squares.  The snow is my styrofoam snow  and the snow on the sign is stickles. 

Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for the Great Outdoors, I can 't wait to see.  A random winner is always chosen from the entrants in the weekly challenge and the winner is given a Gift Certificate to Mo's Store, what a great present to yourself that would be huh!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
