Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

For my card today I used the cute Snowman Stamp "Bundled little Snowboy" from the Meljen's Designs Rubberstamp collection at Whimsy Stamps.


I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. The papers are from last year's Basic Grey collection (I think).

I embellished with some snowflakes made with Whimsy Stamps new Layered Snowflakes dies set, added some seam binding and of course glitter. The sentiment is from a brand new Whimsy Stamp set by raindrop echo designs "Winter Notables" .

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:
