March of the Snowman Blog Hop

I received an email recently from my sweet friend Melisa, asking me to be apart of a "Snowman Blog Hop"! How could I say no?

I collect snowmen and love putting them out for Christmas! I did realize, though, that I don't have very many snowman stamps! I can't wait to check out the rest of the stops on this Snowman Blog Hop, just to get some more inspiration and see what stamps I can't live without!

When you are done checking out my creations, go to the end of this post and click on the links to take you to the other stops in this hop!

This first card turned out so fun! I love the snow background and of course, the nesties!


This card is my favorite! I love the antique look! And of course the red and kraft....if you follow my blog, you know what I am talking about! ;)

Here is one more ridiculously simple card! White cardstock, stamp, black pen red pen. That easy! But kinda cute I think!

Hope this gives you some ideas for your own holiday cards! Now don't forget to check out these other stops on the Snowman Blog Hop!
