Sweet Little Snowman & A BIG SALE!!

 Hello and happy day before Thanksgiving!  Are ya ready for Turkey Day at your house?  It's busy, busy, busy here getting ready, AND looking ahead to Christmas and all that I love about that!  Decorations are the main thing for me.  Well, besides the whole reason for the season and all the wonderful family traditions.  I JUST LOVE to decorate for Christmas, and while my heart hasn't really been into it the past few years, I'm finding that this year I'm looking forward to it.  I've got a cute little snowman tag to share with you.  

I used the disappearing line technique once again to color this image.  I started with desert sand colored Momento ink and colored the adorable little top hat clad snowman with my Copic markers.  Sorry this photo is a bit blurry.  I had to grab it out of one of my galleries, as I'd deleted it from my camera.  :-/  This is actually a wooden tag that I covered with patterned paper and I even had cut that little snow cutie, because I didn't have the SVG file at the time.  Those SVGs to coordinate with stamps is a pretty snazzy idea, and makes fussing cutting a breeze! 

 Before I get back to the Thanksgiving preparations, I wanted to make sure and share some awesome sale information with you.  Peachy Keen Stamps is having their BIG THANKSGIVING SALE, and here are all the details about it.  This sweet snowman is just one of literally hundreds of images that you will find on sale there, and as is their style, there will be prizes, and freebies.  Here are all the details...
