"Ready for Snow" with Mo's Digital Pencil in the Winter Wonderland of a Creatalicious Stamptacular Paper Sundae Cupcake - is as easy as ABC!!!

I missed playing along with Mo's Digital Pencil the last two weeks because hubby and I were on holiday in (mostly) warm and sunny Florida but this week I'm back with an absolute beaut of an image more in keeping with our British weather. It's called "Ready for Snow" and you can find it HERE. For me, this image conjurs up a whole story of a little boy (mouse) waking up early and discovering the first snow and putting his jeans and jumper on before going in to his Dad. And his Dad, still in his PJs, patiently making sure that his son is wrapped up snug and warm in his hat and wellies and mittens to go out and play...

I spent a long time colouring my image with my Promarkers and some Copics. My papers are from the Winter Stack by DCWV and I matted them with purple which for some reason appears to look more dark grey in my photo. I assure you it is purple! My sentiment is by Fiskars I think and is teamed with a Marianne snowflake die and a number of MS snowflakes punched out of sparkly card stock and Stickled.    The red on my image has been topped with a Spica pen for more sparkle and the bells on the little boy's hat have been glazed for extra shine.    The image is so lovely I felt my card didn't need too much in the way of embellishment so I just added a ribbon on a slider and a few pearls.

In addtion to Mo's DP2 Challenge "Winter", I am entering my card in to
Winter Wonderland "Christmas Mouse"
Paper Sundaes "# 95 Digital image"
Stamptacular Sunday "#138 Punch it"
Cupcake Craft "Two's company" (they want to see two images)
Creatalicious "#28 For Christmas and make sure it sparkles"; and
ABC "D is for Dazzle"

Love the card, and loved the story about the two little mice, which I might add I never knew before, might have to add them to my collection just for the story.
