Season's Greetings!

I'm trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I love the Magnolia Snowmen so decided to color a few to try to relieve some stress. It worked, I feel better. My daughter was in a bad car wreck near Redding, Ca. yesterday afternoon. She had to be taken to the hospital by heliacopter and the jaws of life had to be used to cut her out of the car. My DSIL was driving ahead of her and when he didn't see her behind him, went back looking for her and found her wrecked. Believe it or not she only had some road rash on one arm, the same arm had a 5 in cut to the bone that had to be stitched and two hairline fractures in her spine that they said were on spurs so not serious, her vertabraes were all ok. Anyway my SIL called me and said she was in a bad wreck but ok and then he was cutting out because he was in the mountains and hour and half away from Redding, and had bad reception. I had to wait 2 hours for him to get to the hospital and talk to the Dr. so I would know what is going on. I want all my kids to move back to OKlahoma and stay near because that is just too far away in an emergency situation. lol!! Not too sure that will happen tho!
I colored the rhinestones on the large snowflake with Copic marker #B99 and I also used the same marker to color two of the pearls on the card. I also colored the image with Copic markers, used papers from Bo Bunny and sentiment is from LOTV.

I am entering this in a few challenges:

Scrappy Frogs: Bling
icopic Challenge #44: color an embellishment with copic markers
Stamps R Us: Anything Goes
Paper Playtime #53: Anything Goes
Outlawz Greeting Challenge:Sentiment and Anything Goes
