It's a Snowball Fight!

Happy Sunday All!

Today at Whimsy Stamps we are releasing three new stamps from a brand new collection by Crissy Armstrong called the Snickerdoodle Kids Collection! These new stamps are fun, cute, and perfectly Whimsy! I just love them!

The Whimsy Stamps design team has created some eye candy to share with you today on our "Snowball Fight!" blog hop! The hop will run from today until Saturday, January 30th at noon EST.

Today's hop began at Deb's blog, so if you are just stumbling on our hop now, you'll want to go back to Deb's and start from the beginning. If you're joining me from Crystal's blog then you are in the right place. If you take the full hop and leave comments for our designers you can then stop by the Whimsy site and leave a link in Mr. Linky for our GRAND prize of a $50 gift certificate to our online shop!

We will draw one winner at random on Sunday, January 31st and that's not all...we will also choose 3 random winners from comments left on our DT blogs to each receive one of the new Snickerdoodle Kids stamps! And if you stop in our Whimsy SNR group, we'll have some fun games to play with prizes to win!

Now on to my card, I've used the new stamp "Janice and Marty's Snow Day" and have colored with Copics and added lots of glitter for snow and some flocking to Janice's coat for added fluff!

The papers are My Minds Eye with SU! card stock in Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. I love these My Minds Eye papers because they're all covered in glitter and sparkle! I've embellished this card with ribbon and a felt snowflake with an acetate and glitter snowflake and one rhinestone brad. I'll do a post later this week on how to make the acetate and glitter snowflakes...it's very easy and fun too! Plus they make for a sparkly winter accent! The last accent was a sprinkle of glitter over the image to make it look like it was snowing...of course that was only for the photo. I had to clean it up after...too bad glitter doesn't just stick where you want it!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today....now I'm throwing my snowball at Ann's blog, so you'll want to hop there next and see if I hit her! And if you get lost along the way, you can stop back at the Whimsy home page for a list of links.

And, one last thing before you get to hopping...yesterday we released the limited edition digital stamp, "Wings of Hope" created by Crissy Armstrong with all proceeds of the sales (minus and PayPal fees) to benefit the American Red Cross disaster relief for Haiti.

I just have to say how overwhelmed with joy I am at the amazing amount of money we have raised so far for this cause and I just want to say thank you to ALL those crafters out there who stopped what they were doing and went to our site to purchase the image! Thank you for your kindness and generosity, you have helped us to raise over $500 in only one day! I can't wait to see what we can raise in a month! WOW!
