Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to a blog hop in honor of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release day! This month we're doing something really fun! The Design Divas and the Digi Team are hopping together to celebrate the fabulous clear stamps, digis, and dies being released tonight! You'll want to grab your favorite drink or snack and get ready for some amazing eye candy! Tonight we kick off our release party at 8:00PM EST in our member company forums over on Splitcoaststampers.com and we have a great party planned! There will be full reveals of all of the stamp sets, digis and dies, plus challenges and prizes!!

And speaking of prizes.....be sure to visit each blog on the hop and then leave a comment on the SNSS blog letting us know which set is your favorite! There is a fabulous prize up for grabs and it's the ENTIRE NOVEMBER RELEASE!!!!! How exciting is that! The winner's name will be randomly drawn from those comments at the release party tonight, so be sure to join us there tonight after you're done hopping!

If you arrived here from Holly's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened to pop in, you'll want to start at the beginning on the SNSS blog and follow along from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way! I also have the complete list of bloggers at the end of this post for your convenience.
This is a brand new digi being released called Snowman Soup! Don't you just love this cute little snowman sitting in the cup?! There's a Snowman Soup poem sentiment that perfectly coordinates with this sweet image too! If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you should be able to read it. I made a tag for the sentiment and added a little ribbon and some silver snowflake stickers. I colored the image with Copics and popped it up on dimensionals after lining the outside edges with a Tombow marker. There are some matching snowflake stickers on the border of the cup, and I added some liquid applique to the fur on the hat. The background is called recessed diamonds and was done on my Scor-pal.

And now your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Taylor Usry. If you get lost along the way or find broken links, here is a list of all the bloggers participating in this hop.
