Ho Ho Ho, Have a Merry Whimsy Christmas!!

Hello lovely ladies,
I hope your week is ending on a beautiful note!!
Any "Black Friday" shopping plans???
I will just be going to bed when those determined souls
start getting up and ready to go hunt for the deal of a lifetime
at 4 am in the morning.... Bah humbug, lol!!

Every Thursday at Whimsy Stamps, the wonderfully talented Melissa Jenkins releases new digi stamps, and today, I share with you something that I made with the adorable Caroling Snowmen. They were coloured in distress inks, highlighted a bit with a White Gellyroll pen, then I stickled their "glow" with Crystal in the areas that seemed they might need a smidgeon of shadowing, then I cut them out, covered the exposed edges of the image with Prismacolor marker (warm grey 40%) and popped them onto another print of the same image, with the shadowing done in Prismacolor marker (cloud blue).
