A Whole Flock of Frosty Fellas

Melyssa from Whimsie Doodles came up with the idea of these skinny cards to use as bookmarks (by attaching thin pieces of magnet on the insides) and I thought these would be the perfect little gift for Reilly to give his first grade reading friends at school!  These cute little snowmen are available at Whimsie Doodles now.  The accessories come on a separate image sheet, so you can color or paper piece, then mix-match with ease.  Because I had so many to make (I did 24), I did four in each color, with each of the four having a different jacket design.. plain, white dots, black dots and lines.  The coloring was done with Copics, and the lines and dots were added with white and black gel pens.  My DH colored the green jackets for me-- didn't he do a nice job??
What do you think??

Ingredients:  Stamps: Whimsie Doodles {Snowman bookmark/skinny card}; Cardstock: SU! {Whisper White}; Ink: Copics; Accessories: White and Black gel pens, magnet sheets.
