of extra color with my Copic Markers. I also glittered some of the snow.

Thought you may want to know that the 'Direct Blog Link' to click on for Jill takes you to Elizabeth's blog. Was able to get to Jill's by clicking on her name. Like the Valentine creation. Before you know it will be Valentine's Day. All you need is Love. I have the Beatles tune "All You Needs Love" as my cell phone ring tone.
