Welcome to the November Firecracker Designs By Pamela Blog Hop! This month's theme is "Thank You." And to thank YOU, Pamela has given each member of her design team a stamp set as blog candy!!! Whoo Hoo! I'm offering the wonderful sentiments set Let's Celebrate.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from!

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to

SHELLY'S BLOG!!!!

Deets on this card: I masked off the snow area with a torn post it note. I used the brayered sky technique to color this sky. The sentiment was cut out using my Cricut. This cute little snowman was stamped, colored with Copics, and adhered into place with his little hand holding up the words. I added a little scallop edge and strip of DP to the top and bottom and Voila!

Paper: Not Quite Navy, DCVW DP, Whisper White, GP 110
Ink: Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy, Momento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Cricut & Storybook cartridge, scallop edge punch

Enjoy!
