Whimsy Stamps Snowball Fight Blog Hop!


If you are looking for my Stamptacular Sunday Project make sure you scroll down.  This is my second post today.  Thank you!




Ouch!  I've been hit!  Today the Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop is a Snowball Fight.  Hopefully you have just come from Debbie's blog If not, you can start at the beginning of the blog hop HERE.  The hop will go from now until Saturday, January 30th at noon EST.

   It's sure to be a fun time checking out all the new images in the Snickerdoodle Kids Collection.  Today I have a sample using the  SUPER cute Sledding with Marty and Max .





When I saw this image it reminded me of my brother and a dog we used to have.  We used to go sledding as kids at Deadman's Hill.  Now, if that doesn't make you a bit scared to go down the hill what will?  It was always so much fun to go there though.  So I made this card for my brother.  He lives in L.A. now so he doesn't get to go sledding much.  It may be hard to see, but this is actually a clear card.  I used some scrap glittered felt that I had leftover from another project.  It worked perfectly.  This card has a lot of sparkle to it.  I used LOTS of glitter.  My brother's going to either love me or hate me as he sparkles for days after getting this.  One thing is for sure....he'll be thinking of me in some way:)  Because I used glitter I am going to enter this into Lucy's Challenge this week.

I think Marty and Max sure look like they are having a HAPPY DAY!  What do you think?  Make sure you leave comments along the hop.  Three lucky winners will be chosen from different blogs to receive one of the new stamps from this collection.

  Also, one lucky winner will receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the Whimsy Stamp Store.  Make sure you head on over to link up your blog for a chance to win.





Also, there will be some games on the SNR website.  Go check that out as well for a chance to win something too.  What a fun, HAPPY DAY! 

Ok!  Are you ready to hit SUE with a snowball?  Ready....Aim.....FIRE!


Thanks for stopping by!

what a fantastic idea using the clear plastic. The glitter felt makes for perfect snow. I haven't been on a sled before but I couldn't see myself being too excited about Deadman's Hill if offered with a name like that! Thanks for the inspiration and great ideas.
