Hey there, I'm always on the look out for good sketch challenges and I just stumbled onto this one at Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT).  Woot!  I'm using an oldie but a goodie from Our Craft Lounge called Be Jolly.  It's one of my all time favorite winter stamp sets from OCL!

Here's the inside...

Copic coloring:

Snowman:  B63, BG72, BG70, 0, YR04, YR01, E37, E35, E33  Hat: B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, G20, YG63  Scarf:  B95, B93, B91, BG72, BG70  Bird:  B95, B93, B91, C1, YR01, BG72, BG70  Sky:  BG70, 0  Inside image:  E37, E35, E33, B63, BG72, BG70, 0

I had a litlte time on my hands and thought it might be fun to see exactly how many challenges I could link to...holy crapola...I was able to link to 34 before finally calling it quits.  I can't say I've ever linked to so many before (and will probably never try again...LOL)!  This project includes the following challenges:
