Beyond Measure Blog Hop

I'm so delighted that Tammy has asked me to help in the one-year blogaversary of her blog, Beyond Measure.  Tammy is always full of joy and her cheerful posts are such a blessing to me.

The theme of the blog hop is "Celebrating Friends".  I am so fortunate to have such fabulous friends in my life.  I decided to make a special Christmas card for one of my friends - a friend with whom I can be totally silly and who always makes me laugh.  


The sweet little snowman image is from Birdie Brown (a freebie this month).  I'm quite challenged with colouring, but decided a white snowman might work for me!!  I printed off and coloured an extra image - hand cutting the hat and nose and then popping them on the main image for a bit of added dimension.  I used a Stampin' Up tree stamp to create the border at the bottom.  The fun sentiment is from Robin's Creative Cottage - with a tiny snowman stamp from My Craft Spot's Stampin' Around Christmas set.  He's so cute!!  I finished things off with some wonderful baker's twine from My Craft Spot.


One of the best things about celebrations is presents!  To celebrate Tammy's blogaversary, I will be giving away a $15 gift certificate to My Craft Spot.  To qualify, please leave a comment on this post.  If you are a follower of my blog, feel free to leave an extra comment telling me so for an extra entry.  I will announce my winner on Wednesday.

Tammy also has TWO grand prizes available on her blog, Beyond Measure.  To be eligible for her prizes, leave a comment at each of the blogs on this hop (see list below).

Your next stop is a visit to Maria at Joyful Stamper. Happy hopping!

Frosty with a very big head. The bowler hat reminded me of a villin in a James Bond movie. a fun card. Thank you for having me over.
