Flaunt It Fridays Grand Opening

Good Morning Everyone. It is Flaunt It Fridays First Challenge & Grand Opening Blog Hop. I hope that you have enjoyed seeing all the projects so far and have been leaving bloggy love along each stop. In order to qualify for the Grand Prize, you must comment on all projects and then return to Flaunt It Fridays blog for a 2nd chance. Remember that we are being sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps and who doesn't want any of that peachy goodness?


If you have arrived here from Stephanie's blog then you are in the right place. If you stumbled across my blog and you want to start at the beginning, click here.


For the first challenge we were asked to use the Snowman from Winter Frolic. To play along you must use him but if you don't own the cartridge then no worries, use a similar looking snowman.

Picture 1: 4x4 card
Snowman pg29 - Winter Frolic

For my Blog Hop project, we were asked to create another project using any Winter Frolic cut. I thought I would create a companion card for my pink snowman.

Picture 2: 4x4 Companion Card
Same Snowman

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you come back soon. Next on the list is Ruthie. Remember, to qualify for the grand prize you must hop along to every blog.


I am also giving away blog candy. You don't have to be a follower but I would like it if you are. I am offering 10 cuts from the Smiley Cards Cartridge. If you own a gypsy, then Ill send you a list of cartridges that you can choose from.

Hi Jess,

I love your snowman cards!!! Did you cut the snow in the first one by hand? And how did you do the sentiment (on the computer or is it stamped?)? I love the star flourish stamp (?) you used in the corner, too! Who is that by?

Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win (I'm not lucky enough to own the Gypsy, so I would love to win the cuts from the Smiley Cards Cartridge),
