In the meadow we can build a snowman

Olo!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. All is well here, though I should be getting ready for work today. Once we get snow on the roads it takes a little longer to get into town... I look at it as more time to enjoy my Christmas tunes while driving. ;)

So this card was part of the Review Preview on the ATS blog earlier this week and features Chill E. Pinebough from the November SN release. This time around I drew a little forest scene in the distance behind him with a few quick squiggles of the marker. I like how it gives Chill E. a home to live in with his birdie pal. It's the little things that make me smile I tell ya. :)

Alrighty, I'm gonna cut this one short and be on my merry way. Take it easy my friends!

Hi Amy, this is a very sweet card. I love your little scene for him to be a part of. I think he needs to have a home. :O) I hope you drive safe and have a great day. I have the next three days off, so I am hoping the snow stays like it is here so that I can get my Xmas shopping all wrapped up. (pun intended.) Wish me luck that I can keep it all in the closet until the big day. Hugs, Lisa
Are you listening to your Glee Christmas yet? I haven't picked it up yet. :O( I'm not sure what I am waiting for. Hugs again, Lisa
