Caroling Snowmen

     I'm so excited to announce that I was invited to join Beccy's Place as a Guest Designer for a blog hop that is being done by Sparkle N Sprinkle, where you can find many of Beccy's images. 

     Today the Beccy's Place designers have teamed up with Sparkle N Sprinkle for the release of the new "Snow One Like You" set of images.  The girls over at SNS have been working with the rubber stamp version, while we have been using the digital set that contains a couple of additional images.
Keep reading to learn how you can win one of Beccy's digital sets!
The digital set is available for purchase from Beccy's online store.
Here is the card I created using the set. 


     I went a little wild with the circles but that just makes it a "well-rounded" card, right?    I used ProMarkers to color the image and added glitter to them and to the ice for a bit of sparkle.  I used the same shades of blue to color the "joy" in the sentiment.

     I die cut everything; image, dp, sentiment, then layered everything onto a sapphire blue card base.  I added pearls to the corners for embellishment and then left it alone.  I thought the papers were busy enough that nothing more was needed.

     Beccy is giving away three sets of the "Snow One Like You" digital stamps.  All you have to do is leave a comment on one of her designers blogs during the hop.  Three random comments will be chosen and those people will receive the full set of digital images.  You can leave a comment on as many of the designers blogs as you like... visit them all to increase your chances of winning!

     Challenges I'm entering with this card:
2 Sisters -- Anything goes
Crafts-Too Challenge You -- Texture + glittery
Creative Corner -- Great Outdoors (if they weren't outdoors, they'd melt!)

Digi Haven -- 2 colors (blue & white; just for you, Lynn!)

My Creative Moments -- Seasons (winter)

Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Even the snowmen are made from circles. They're sure singing their hearts out! I love the little bit of glitter.

Congratulations on your Guest Designer post at Beccy's Place. She has so darling images and your creations help bring them even more alive. She has another snowman that I adore too. Cleaning and pitching in the house has taken over my life.
