Snow Trio -- Sketch

Today's sketch in the SCS Sketch Challenge was not one I 'fell in love with' right away. It seemed a bit off balance to me. But I am always game to try a sketch, so off I went to create. Now I must say that I am happy with the results. The only change I would make to this (if I wasn't staying true to the sketch) would be to raise the main image just 1/4 to 1/2 inch so there was a bit of color beneath the image.

The snow trio is a new fav of mine, so I think you will see lots of holiday cards made through the year with them.....they are cute, easy to color, and adapt to various color combos.

Now to some personal news......I am late....very late to get a birthday card in the mail to my dear Old Fart friend, Carol. (I am soooo bad lately!!!) So I would like to take a moment here to wish her the absolute best birthday evah......and to tell her that her card will be on its way....so sorry to be late....I will blame retirement....!!!!! (Carol is one of my dear friends who actually takes the time to stop in at my blog....and I so appreciate that!!!!)

Happy Birthday, Carol!!!!

You have such an eye for color, Jo, and this trio of happy snowbuddies just makes me smile. I don't know if I've ever told you this, must I always love all the piercing you do. You have a lot of patience for as much as you do.
Thanks, too, for the congrats on my blog. I really appreciated what you wrote about the acceptance part. You're such a sweetie!
