QKR Stampede Challenge #224 - Snowman or Snowflakes

Hard to believe the year is over!  It's been the best AND worst year of my life!  My son getting married was the highlight, we gained an AWESOME daughter in law!  The low point was the passing of my mom, however, she is in a much better place and not suffering any more!  So, CHEERS to 2017!

Our challenge this week at QKR Stampede is "Snowman or Snowflakes".  I chose image #10501 Feeding the Birds.  I colored him with copics, cut out on my Cameo, and clear wink of stella all over him.  I used Stampin' Up! softly falling embossing folder, Memory Box snowflake corner die, Impression Obsession Evergreen trees and Hill Landscape dies.  Papers are all from my stash, frosted lace stickles for the snow, on the trees and on the falling snow.
