Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Snow days

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that shows us what you like to do on snow days. I can't imagine myself being far from the house on a snow day... since we've lived in the Tropics for several years, anything under 80F feels cold to me! So here's a snowy window scene... aaaaaaand imagine me still inside. :)
I colored the image with Touch Twin markers, using a Sakura glaze pen for some realistic shine on the windows, and Martha Stewart glitter for the snow. The window stamp and sentiment are part of a clear set called Winter View, which was part of last year's winter release. I also used the Wood Grain Cover-a-Card background stamp on the oval sentiment panel, and the Thick and Thin Cover-a-Card for the striped background. It's stamped 3 times with 3 different inks, moving over slightly each time.These are the Touch Twin Markers that I used:
