Little Snowy

I have a Christmas card to share today...featuring a mini version of Penny Black's 'Snowy' from the 'Jolly Friends' set. I extended the snowy ground on the image using a black gel pen, then coloured him using watercolour pencils and carefully cut him out. I snowy paper behind him was a freebie with a magazine quite some time ago...I stamped a sentiment (from a Pollycraft for C. C. Designs) and doodled a simple border using a black gel pen.

Well he looks warm and cosy all wrapped up against that snow flurry. So cute that he's got some mistletoe too. Thanks for playing along at the HLS Christmas challenge.
