~FTHS Blog Hop-Project 100 Snowman

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a Project 100 Snowmen Theme this month. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous snowy projects.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.

If you have arrived from Kathy Stacy's blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, using Snowman Valentine which is #26 in the Project 100 Snowman line.

I have used some oldie My Mind's Eye papers for this one and paired it with our FTHS sketch with a tWiSt this week.  The sketch is below and is awesome in itself, I just turned it for my card and the tWiSt is perfect for this time of year as well...hearts, hearts, and more hearts.

Now head over to Lyn's blog to see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday February 8th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday February 10th.

~Brollie Bunny

 Oh my gosh this little bunny is too cute!  I have used this super cute new image from Di's Digis on my card for our challenge this time around.

The sweet image is called Brollie Bunny and can be found it the new section at Di's Digis. Our wonderful sponsor this time around is Your Next Stamp**As an added BONUS, Your Next Stamp is offering our challenge entrants 20% off in their shop during the 2 weeks of this challenge!!  To take advantage of this amazing offer, please use code DDDC20 at checkout:)**

I have a mid challenge reminder for you!  Our current challenge is still going on over at Di's Digi's is to use snow or snowflakes on your card!

This image is called Snowman and can be found in the Christmas section over at Di's Digi's.  Magnolia-licious is our sponsor this week and they have offered up a super fun surprise grab bag!  Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT

~Snowman Valentine

 Oh man, this week has been busy!  I only worked two days but we have our home skating competition this weekend, so I've been spending the rest of my time getting ready for that!  It should be a super fun day for all the girls!

I am playing catch up here with some card from From the Heart Stamps!  They are both mid week inspiration cards-the one below for this weeks sketch that is still on-Sketch 135 and the tWiSt is to use something from nature!

The papers are from a Bo Bunny line called Smoochable and the image is a super cute new one called Snowman Valentine!
The one below that was from last week's sketch but was still super cute, so I wanted to share!  I just love working with Faith's images!

Wishing you a crafty week!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your card entered over at FTHS!

~Catch A Falling Star

 Wishing you all a wonderful 2016!  I hope your new year has been excellent so far.  We are just enjoying the last couple of day of holidays before school and work is back.  

We have a new challenge for you over at Di's Digis and the first one of 2016. New to You is our challenge this time around so we would like to see your card featuring something that is new to you- it can be a new image, a new technique, a new paper stack or die or supply item or in my case, I have used a new to me image as well as made this card for my brand new nephew!

The image is called Catch A Falling Star and can be found in the new section of Di's store.  For some reason there appears to be lines throughout my pic and I'm not sure why, but in real life they aren't there!  I have used this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

I hope you'll play along with us at Di's Digis!  Pop on over to see the rest of the gorgeous new to you creations from the design team.
