Here's the full hop listing:
Serendipity has the sweetest snowman images! This new image, Snowman with Umbrella, is no exception! Snowmen are easy colors... just a few little highlights and you are done! A little background coloring always helps the white to stand out.

I used B00 and B0000 in the background. On the snowman I used a little BG10 for shadows.

 I colored the image with Copics and then used a few little drops of Bo Bunny's Sugar Glaze to add a little sparkle to the snow.

On the inside I used my pattern paper scraps and stamped the new sentiment on the inside with Versafine's Satin Red.

  18. I've just 'discovered' you from Jeanne's blog and oh my! How glad I am to have come for a visit because WOW! Your creativity and talent are outstanding! Your umbrella-toting snowman is incredibly charming! Indeed, a most gorgeous work of art. You've certainly sparked my festive spirit! Thank you...
