Happy Winter

My dd and I are accumulating quite a collection of Charlie the Horse images from Clear Dollar Stamps. This stamp is from the adorable "Charlie Snowhorse" set. I think he's supposed to just be a snowman, but I decided to use the little Christmas tree image that was in the set to make tree branches, so it would look like Charlie just got a gob of snow dumped on him. :-) If you click on the picture you should be able to see all the "snow" (aka Stickles!) on the branches.
The sentiment is a combination of two sets - the 'happy' is from Patchpal Scarecrow and the 'winter' is part of a sentiment from the Charlie set. The colors are for the Weekend Color Challenge over on PCP.

Thanks for stopping by!
