Friends Warm the Heart

And boy can I use some warming right now? The weather is frigid here (4 degrees this morning) and we are expecting a major snowstorm tonight. I am home nursing a terrible respiratory infection but will have to be on the road in the morning no matter what. In my line of work, bad weather means all hands on deck! So with the looming snow what better subject to color than a snowman? And I have to say, he is one handsome dude! lol I recently purchased this stamp from the Flourishes website. I was a little "afraid" of coloring snow but after a little experimentation got the hang of it. Let me know if a photo tutorial would be of use! If you like the looks of my snow dude I can share the secret! lol... Have a wonderful and warm day! And stay safe out there!

Blessings
