Sweet Sparkly Snowman



Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years! A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 37 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog! You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!

If you have been following along already you should have come from Shannon White. If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way! Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)

Here is what I created for the hop

PB068028

I used the snowman image from theSnow Special set and "colored" it with red, silver, and stardust stickles. I stamped 2 snowflakes from the Snowflake Flourish set and popped them up over my snowflake punches. The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Dots and Stripes Christmas paper pad. I love the little snowflakes in some of the dots of the background panel. My layout is the Sweet Stop sketch for this week. All of the edges were sewn and rhinestones were added for the buttons. This is such a sparkly card in person and my teenage daughter gave it the thumbs up lol.

Your next stop on the hop is Katlyn Traxler, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:







































Glad you were able to stop in today, enjoy the rest of the hop!
