SNSS Friends Blog Hop event!


Welcome to the Friends of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps birthday blog hop event!


I'm so honored to be part of today's celebration as I adore Korin and her company so much!  I love the variety of images and designs that SNSS offers - and with nearly every stamp set there is a Christian sentiment or Bible verse to go along with it.  And, who doesn't love Cocoa and Cookie Mouse or Rhubarb the bear?  They are so cute and fun to color and paper piece!!

While I was preparing for today's hop, I decided to use some of the new Christmas stamps that were just released.  I'm always in need of Christmas cards this time of the year, aren't you?  For my first card I used the beautiful Old Fashioned Christmas clear stamp set.  I love the vintage feel of this set and how quickly a card can be made with it!  Silhouette images make mass producing cards like this one a breeze - which is always good with Christmas cards in my book!


My next card uses the adorable Gingerbread Mini stamp set.  Isn't he adorable stamped in versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder on chocolate brown card stock? lol!  I choose to go a bit 'country-ish' with my card using shades of reds and browns along with some yummy maraschino red twine from The Twinery to embellish the buttons.

Now for the fun part!  Korin is in the mood to celebrate and will be choosing 4 random participants on our blog hop event who leave comments by midnight EST Friday, November 30th to receive a $15 store credit gift certificate!  The winners will be announced on the SNSS company blog on December 1st at 8am EST.


Check out the links below for all the eye candy we've prepared for you today and have fun hopping!  I know you're going to love what you see!

I love both of your Christmas cards, but since I have a soft spot for Gingerbread men, I have to say the second one was my favorite. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us!
