Critters & Creatures Linky Party 9 - November

Happy Monday and thanks so much for stopping by! It's time for the November Critters and Creatures Linky Party! Thanks to everyone that played along last month! It's always great seeing so many of you play along!! Be sure to scroll down to see if your entry was a top choice.

As always anything goes featuring a critter or creature
This means it has to be the main focal point on your creation, and cannot be a little bug or butterfly.
Of course bugs or butterflies are fine to use, as long as they are the focal point. 

How about an optional theme this time?
Create an outdoor scene using a critter or creature. This is totally optional and just for some added fun.
I decided to play with some new dies today and a cute snowman for my creature. Tree dies and snowman are both from Penny Black. The little snowman has been stamped onto xpress it card and colored with copic markers, then fussy cut. 
I used masking fluid to create the snowy background, it was applied with a paint brush, let dry then inked with distress ink. The snowy hills were done by simply tearing some paper, and I added wink of stella for some sparkle. A glittered snowflake (MS punch) was added as an embellishment. Sentiment also by Penny Black. 

I did a little bit of stamping on the inside using a pine tree stamp from Penny Black and old sentiment from Stampin Up. 
This card is listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested.


Now onto the top choices, as always it's hard to choose but here they are in no particular order:
