Blog Challenge Blog Hop

Good Friday morning, and welcome! It's the end of another week, but the beginning of a fabulous blog hop! Today starts the Blog Challenge Blog Hop, and it won't end until October 1st. What you might ask is that? Well, 13 challenge blogs have gotten together to present this Blog Challenge Blog Hop. Each challenge blog along the way will have challenges for you to participate in and they're offering amazing prizes!! Peachy Keen Stamps is one of the challenge blogs participating, and I am thrilled to have a card to share with you made with one of my favorite Peachy Keen stamps. Snowmany Thanks is the name of this set, and I absolutely love the sweet expression on this adorable snowman. I also LOVE that twiggy hair! Every time I see this image it makes me smile!!

Here's a little closer look. The sparkle shows up a bit better when you get in close. Gotta have that bling!! *wink* I used my SU inks and an aquapainter to color this image, and my circle nesties for the circle and scalloped circle. The new Fancy Tags Nestabilities are my new best friend, and I used the largest of the three to cut the tag for the sentiment. After cutting the tag, I sponged some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink over the surface before I popped it out of the die, and I distressed the edges of the snowflakes with it as well. Finally I added some dazzling diamonds glitter for bling, and some half back pearls for dimension, and VOILA!! Please be sure to head over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog to check out all the wonderful creations the design team has created, and welcome our two very talented guest designers, Emma and Lauri! You'll find all the details about the blog hop there, and check out that Blog Candy!! Play along with the challenge and get YOUR name in the hat to win!!!!!!!!!
