Hi everyone! I'm so excited to introduce to you the first annual "March of the Snowmen" Blog Hop! I love snowmen images and so do all the other designers participating in this blog hop. This talented group of ladies has planned some sensational snow flurried projects for you. So before I list my own mini march of snowmen projects let me introduce you to our designers!

And check out each designers blogs carefully for MORE blog candy announcements!

Snowman Project #1 was designed using a vintage FREE digi download from a challenge blog : Digital for Tuesday Challenge Blog. They post a FREE vintage digi image each tuesday for you to design with. The blog is sponsored by Clearly Vintage. The owner sales vintage stamp sets that are wonderful. So I wanted to take a minute to share this wonderful find with all my vintage lovin' friends. I also designed this project for another challenge blog : Sunday Postcard Art. When I can I have been playing along with challenge blogs for inchies, ATC's, collage, mixed media recently.
A postcard is 4" x 6". I started with a piece of cardboard, tore away some of the surface to reveal the "ripples". I layered on Weathered Wood Crackle Paint, then Sky Making Memories Acrylic Paint and lastly Picket Fence Crackle Paint. I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I add Shimmerz. My "snow" is liquid applique. I love that stuff! I add a little white fun flock around the brim of the girls hat and Stampendous Prisma glitter to feather and ball on tip of girls hat. All the other embellishments are things I picked up in the Christmas section of a local arts and crafts store.
Snowman Project #2 was created using a wonderful vintage cut out by Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage line of products. I'm gonna be giving this one away at a Cookie Swap tomorrow night that is held annually by some of my Scrapbooking buddies here in town.
Snowman Project #3 was created using "Gifts of Love" by FireCracker Designs by Pamela. You can check this set out HERE. I love Martha Stewarts Snowflake border punch! Perfect for you winter cards.
Snowman Project #4 features "Snowman Nativity" by The Angel Company. I created my own watercolor background for this one, then stamped and embossed the snowflakes creating my own DP. This is a Score-pal card, Cami card. You can find the directions on the Scor-pal site. If you are interested in ordering this set online from a TAC demo, let me know. I can hook you up! I'm hoping one of the designers in the hop show cases "Merriest Wishes". It is one of the cutest snowman sets I have EVER seen!
The window creates a great card!
