New Beginnings with Rick St. Dennis & Snowmen with Dilly Beans

Hello bloggy friends! I am very excited for today's post. Not only do I have a new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you, but today is also my first official post with the Rick St. Dennis Team Glitter! But let's start with Dilly Beans. This week's challenge is Snowmen. Something my kids really wish we could build...but we have no snow! I'm ok with that...but the kids are sad.

This is digi #490: Candy Cane Snowman framed. I love all of the framed images from Dilly Beans. They all have such charm with the way that Megan (owner/designer) offsets the images.

I colored the snowman with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I hope you can see the gradation of color in the background...it looks kind of like a sunset.

I hope you will play along! Head on over to the Dilly Beans Challenge blog to do so, and to see what the rest of the DT has created! Now it's time for my Rick St. Dennis project.

This is Euro Girl Hazel, and I think she is adorable. The theme for this challenge is "New Beginnings." Not only is the image new for me, but being a part of this EDT is also new for me, so I've got a two-fer! 

 I colored Hazel with my alcohol markers as well. Sadly, a few of my favorite watercolor markers are beginning to dry out, so I have to rely a bit more on the alcohol based ones. I added 2 thin rows of Ice Stickles, for just a touch of sparkle. My sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I hope you will play along with this challenge as well! Please visit the Rick St. Dennis EDT blog for more info, and to see what my fellow team mates have created. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Both cards are so different in the coloring style but both are really spiffy.
