Snowman and Birdie Friends by Conie Fong

Hi!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I am definitely not a summer person.  It's been in the high 80's here and very humid.  Mosquitoes and bugs everywhere.  Yuck!  I do, however, love the long days, beautifully coloured flowers, and the lush grass and trees.  

The theme for Conie Fong's Facebook challenge this month is "Always Anything Goes" with an option of "Create a Shaker Card".  
In addition to the monthly challenge, there is also a monthly Colouring Only challenge.  
I made a shaker card a few years ago, so this is only my second one.  Here is my DT inspirational card:

This darling image is"Snowman and Birdie Friends" by Conie, which can be found here:
I used Copic markers and Polychromos pencils to colour this sweet image.  The poinsettia is handmade.  I decided to make some falling snow around the image with Nuvo glitter drops.  The shaker itself is filled with Shaved Ice and tiny snowflakes.  Have a nice weekend.  xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Poinsettia:      Heartfelt Creations "Sparkling Poinsettia" die HCD1-766
Letters:           Cricut Expression cutting machine
Shaker:           Jillibean Soup "Small Circle" shaped shaker
Snowflakes:    The Paper Studio snowflake punch

Ribbon, Nuvo glitter Drops (White Blizzard) and Magic Scraps Shaved Ice are from my stash.
