It's the March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!

Pin It
I've got a winner ~ Congrats to Jenny Gropp!

Welcome to the 1st Annual March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!

Thank you so much Melisa for inviting me to participate!

I have a few things to show you today, so let's get started...

You can click on any pic to make it larger.

First up is an ornament:



I just LOVE this snowman from the {ippity} set Kissmas & Mistletoe!

...in fact, all the stamps I used on this ornament came from that one set!



You can purchase {ippity} stamps from ME! Just click HERE!

The snowman is popped up and there are three red rhinestones for his buttons!
The brown snowflake ribbon is from Michael's.



For this next item... I came up with the idea while trying to fall asleep the other day...
maybe that's why I have trouble falling asleep....
there are always stamps and paper, ribbon, bling, etc. running thru my head! LOL



I used two nesties to make the circle shapes, did some sponging with bliss blue ink...
and added black and mango pearls!

I sprayed him with Bamboo Leaf Shimmerz Spritz so he's all sparkling!

Oh, and some yummy SU ribbon for his fabulous ribbon scarf!



My last project is a cocoa gift set!



I just love to make these coaster boxes...they are so easy and are great gifts!
The snowman paper is by My Mind's Eye.
HERE is a Coaster Box Tutorial.



AND...what about that marshmallow snowman jar!!!
I saw THIS over at the fabulous Lauren Meader's blog and just knew I had to incorporate it in my set!



This jar is part of a 4 pack set from Ikea...they are not that expensive and are great for lots of packaging, storage, etc.

And here is the little tag:
I added some Snowdrift Sparkle Fibers to the bottom for 'snow' and sparkle!



Thanks so much for visiting me today...

I have some goodies I'd like to share!

Just leave a comment on this post and on Monday I'll do a random drawing from all comments and send them some goodies!
...think pearls, ribbons...


Be sure to check out the rest of the March of the Snowmen Hop participants...
Because there are lots of goodies along the way! *wink* *wink*
