Flaunt it Friday's using a Priscillastyles Sketch

Good afternoon everyone. I wanted to try out the new challenge at Flaunt it Friday's. Here's what they had to say: "This week we chose to Flaunt the SNOWMAN on PAGE 29 FROM WINTER FROLIC cartridge. If you do not own this cartridge feel free to use ANY similar cut from ANY cartridge." Which was a perfect because I own Winter Frolic and haven't gotten a chance to use it as an added bonus the little snowman is super cute. I really like working with sketches because they give me a starting point so I headed over to Priscilla Styles . They always have great sketches. This month they are encouraging us to use 3 past sketches. They also asked us to share a holiday story. Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday. I just love everything about it. So I have tons of stories but one of my favorite childhood memories is baking holiday cookies with my father. My sister and I every year would gather in the kitchen with our father and make an assortment of different cookies. I was just thinking about that this morning and I decided that I want to start doing the same with my little ones. Here's my card using the snowman from Winter Frolic and the sketch from Priscilla Styles:

Isn't he adorable??? So here's the deets:

I used the snowman from Winter Frolic. If you've looked at the snowman on page 29 you would notice that he has arms but I cut mine off. I misplaced my cricut blade so instead I used the cri-kits. I'm really loving these gel pens. I'm going to have to get more.
I used a PKS face from the Medium Critter Faces Set. Pssst PKS is having sales the entire month of December and giving away an AWESOME customer appreciation present to one lucky customer so head on over and check em out.
I used a white gel pen from PKS.
My copics
Bling from my sis
The sentiment is from the Pink by Design Simply Everything stamp set.
All the paper is SU. The patterned paper is retired.

Hope ya'll have a wonderful Wednesday :)
