Karen's Doodles is hosting a blog hop today along with our weekly challenge. Visit each team member's blog and collect the letters. Once you get all of the letters, unscramble them to reveal the 2 word phrase. Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer. A grand prize winner of a $20 gift certificate will be chosen from all of the correct answers, in addition to the 3 weekly challenge winners. They will also be awarding random prizes of digi images chosen from the people who comment on each member's blog, so be sure to leave some love. You should have arrived here from Tracy's blog if not return to the Challenge blog for a list of the DT members in hop order.

This is the last week for our hostess Nancy and she has given us a fabulous sketch to follow.  I am using a new image from Karen's Doodles, Skating Snowman, doesn't Sylvester look like he is having fun!


I created the card first using this great paper from October Afternoon.  I turned the sketch on it's side as I wanted the panel with the houses to be most visible.  Then I sized and printed the image onto Cryogen paper with Adobe Photoshop Elements and my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Ice - B000
Sky - B0000
Hat - C2, C4, G82
Vest - R29, G82
Bow Tie - G82
Nose - YR16
Arms - E43
Birds - R22, R29, YR16, E42
Trees - G82

I added lots of Frosted Lace Stickles to the snowy areas for bling.  After I added the snowflakes, I decided they were too large but I could not remove them without tearing the paper so there they stay. I am the last stop on the hop and my letter is........
H
so unscramble them to make a 2 word phrase then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with your answer and please join in on this fun challenge.
