Bells Ring Set from Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!!
Happy Weekend and can you believe it's the first of October already? Wow!! Have you seen all the awesome new Shaker Sets that Art Impressions just released? So CUTE and FUN!!! Today I'm featuring the adorable Bells Ring Set! This is just the cutest snowman I think I've ever seen!! And to add another layer of cuteness, I added jingle bells to his little behiney. Could he be any more adorable?
When I'm using bright colors, I like to shade my white with blue. When I'm using more muted tones in my card, I then turn to my Copic Toner grays to shade the white.  
And a little wonky look at the shaker
And a little video so you can see and hear him in action!
Copics used: 
B000, Blender, R22, R24, R27, C1, C3, C5, C7, YG61, YG63, YG67, Y23, Y26, E93, E95

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope you get some time this weekend to be crafty!
