Good morning!  It's Tuesday so that means we have another sketch for you from Tuesday Morning Sketches
.  We also have a twist; this week is our judged challenge and we would like to see you use snowmen or jingle bells...or both...on your creations!

I remembered this fun Whipper Snapper stamp and thought it would be perfect...snowmen and jingle bells!  The image is colored with pencils and I've added some subtle glitter to the Santa hat and jingle bells.  I used some paper that I've had in my stash for years; I shabbied it up a bit by applying ink to the edges, then white paint, followed by a dusting of glitter.  I embellished simply with red grosgrain ribbon and a snowflake.  I also applied ink, paint, and glitter to the patterned layer of the snowflake and finished it with a jingle bell brad.

Image: Whipper Snapper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Burnt Umber
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, October Afternoon DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", White Acrylic Paint, PTI Pure Poppy Grosgrain Ribbon, Spare Parts Brad
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, MFT "Let it Snowflake" Die-namics Dies, EK Success 3D Dots
