March of the Snowmen Blog Hop

Welcome to our second annual March of the Snowmen Blog Hop! We had so much fun getting together to share our wintery projects last year!  I am so glad we have come back for another year!


Me and some blogging friends are here today to bring you lots of Snowman goodness!  I have a card to share today!

The strip of impressed paper is from the Snowflake Impressionability's!  Love that thing!  Can you believe I cut that snowman out of a piece of patterned paper?  The only snowman stamp I own is 3/4" tall so I had to find something bigger for this hop!  :)

One last little bit....I have a little blog candy to hand out!  I have 2 stamp sets to give away to one lucky visitor!  All you have to do is leave a comment and I will draw a name, Thursday morning, January 27th!

So glad you came by today! Here are a list of other blogs you are sure going to want to stop at! I have my post scheduled early this morning! The actual blog hop starts at 8am CST!
