March of the Snowmen Hop
Welcome to the March of the Snowmen blog hop! A group of us ladies are just having a fun little hop to showcase our snowmen creations. Along with the great eye candy today, there is a LOT of blog candy being given away!!! The complete list of links along the hop is listed at the end of this post. Be sure to hop to each blog and read the directions at the end of each post to have a chance to win some great blog candy. I am one of the blog candy stops, so keep on reading. :-)
The hop doesn't start til 9amEST/8amCST, but I am posting this early because I have to go to work. I live smack dab in the middle of Texas, so what better way to start my post than with a Cowboy Snowman?? LOL
Isn't that just too cute?? LOL I found this cowboy snowman stamp and the sentiment at a LSS. The snowman is from Deadbeat Designs and the sentiment is from jamnstamps. The rust card base is stamped with a woodgrain backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms (retired). I paper pieced his little bandana and I couldn't resist giving him a little lasso. Hee hee hee!
Now that you've seen the "masculine" snowman, how about a sweet, pink, sparkly snow-girl?
This adorable snowman is a digi image from Heart Song Designs - a brand new store that just opened up this month. Leah, the owner, has lots of digis ready for sale with more being added every week.
I colored this girly snowman with Copic markers and then added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter here and there. I also added some white Flower Soft to the fuzzy ends of the knit cap on her head.
Here is a close-up:
See how shimmery that chipboard heart is? I painted that with Tutu Pink Creative Inspirations Paint and then adhered a button to the corner after the paint dried. The heart was then adhered to a clear acrylic snowflake and placed in the corner of the card.
I hope you enjoyed my snowman creations today. Are you ready for some BLOG CANDY?? If you liked the pink, sparkly snow-girl, you have a chance to win her and 4 other digis from Heart Song Designs (5 free digis - your choice). I'm keeping this simple - just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Thursday.
After you leave your comment, please hop along to Jen Carter's blog. If you haven't seen the creations from the three ladies before me, please consult the list below and click their links. You don't want to miss what they have for you today.
