Day 5 of 12 Days of Creepmas: Got Mistletoe?

Hello! It's Day 5 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Today, I have a card featuring a Dilly Beans image. It's "Disturbed Snowman #276." I love this guy!

Isn't he great? As crazy as he looks, he has a huge heart. I made this a very simple card...using only 3 strips of paper and an Inkadinkado sentiment.

I colored the snowman using watercolors. And I inked around the edges of him and the card itself using Distress Inks. I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs.

I hoe you like my simple little card! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
