March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!

Here it is!  The Second Annual March of the Snowmen Blog Hop!
We had so much fun with it last year, we decided to do it all again :)  To jog your memory, HERE is the march from last year.

We've got some very talented & inspirational artists and crafters throughout this hop, so you won't want to miss a blog!  Not to mention that most of us will be giving away a bit of BLOG CANDY along the way!  Be sure to see the details about that at the bottom of this post :)

Now... onward march!

I've chosen to keep it nice and simple today... one little ol' card with one little ol' snowman :)  Don't you just LOVE him?  He's from Stampendous and he just makes me smile.
:)
See?

Not a lot of foof... just a bit of Copic coloring and some glittah baby :)  So as to not bore you with all of it here, just page down a bit for the card details.

And please check out what the rest of these wonderfully talented ladies have created:


And now... about the blog candy:

I just so happened to have just finished moving my studio from one room to another, so I found a PLETHORA of new, fabulous finds to give away!  So as to not ruin the surprise, I'm not posting a picture...

{insert slightly evil laugh here}

...just know that there will be stamps, inks, trinkets and more to be had!  All you have to do is leave a comment!  Becoming a Follower is always a plus, but not necessary... but how will you find out if you win?!  ;)

What do you think?!
