Snowflake Kisses and Winter Wishes...

TGIF my friends!

So I've been sitting on a big secret for a while now and I am SO excited that I finally get to spill the beans... I have been invited to be a guest designer for Hello Bluebird during their holiday release this month! I'm tellin' ya, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I got the email, I have been such a huge fan of their super cute stamps for some time now so getting the chance to help showcase a new release is a total thrill! 
Today is the first day of previews and the HB team and I will be sharing new cards every day leading up to the release on Monday the 28th at 7pm mountain time. For today's sneak peek I have inked up a few of the darling woodland critters from the First Snow set. There are so many great images in this set and I've got big plans for the rest as well but I started with these three because I liked how they are all looking up towards the sky with their scarves trailing out behind them. This lead me to coloring them into quite the gusting snow storm, which was a lot of fun. The sweet little sentiment comes in the set as well and perfectly compliments these adorable characters. I kept the majority of the card light and kind of washed out so that the bright colors on the critters would really pop as the focal point. I think the end result captures that magic of winter's first snow fall. :)

Alrighty, be sure to check out the Hello Bluebird blog for amazing cards from the HB team and then come back tomorrow as we continue the countdown to release day!
