Lawnscaping Blog Hop

I'm so sorry this post is going up to late. I had unfortunantely read AM as PM!


 

Today is the day! The first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop is here =)

You should have come here from Michelle's blog. If you just stumbled over this blog hop browsing my blog, please go back to the Lawnscaping blog to start at the beginning.
This hop will run from Friday, September 9th to Sunday, September 11th.
Make sure you comment along your way, because there are prizes to be won for some lucky commenters =)
More information about the prizes can be found at the Lawnscaping blog!

The theme for this bloghop is celebrate the holdidays!
Here is the card I created for this blog hop:



I chose to make a Valentines Day card for this hop. I figured that probably many of the participants would make cards for Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and other soon-to-come holidays, and I wanted to do something a bit different =) I soon got the idea for the snowman holding a love letter, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out =) I hand drew the envelope for the snowman to hold, as well as the snowy hills, using my Memento marker. The little stamped heart on the envelope is from Lawn Fawn's "Plus One" set, everything else stamped on the image is from "Making Frosty Friends". To get the snowman to hold the envelope, I first stamped his arms on an angle. I then added a second line to make the arms bent back in towards the snowmans body. I curved the snowman's body after cutting him out, and adhered him with foam adhesive to make him look more dimensional =)

That's it for this stop on the hop.
Your next stop on the hop is Kristy Smith's blog


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog during this bloghop today! Be sure to check out the Lawnscaping blog for more information about the hop, to start at the beginning, and to get to know more about the fabulous prizes =)
