It's the SNSS March Release Blog Hop!

Hello and a very happy Friday to everyone!

It's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge, and this week we're bringing you a fun blog hop for the SNSS March release.

While you're hopping, be sure to leave comments on each of the blog posts because one of the DT blogs is a "mystery blogger" and the winner will be randomly chosen from that blog post!

The winning prize will be the whole March digi release and the winner will be announced here on Friday, March 23rd.

And now for this week's challenge: Be Inspired by GREEN


I'm using the brand new Cookie's Tea digi image and it's been colored with Copics. I used some soft green and pink dsp from MB and embossed it with a damask ef. I added some crochet lace and wove some pretty Rosewood Dream String {that I won from Pizzazz Aplenty} through the lace to bring out the darker pink colors in the image. I added 4 mini button brads and some swirls using a Sizzix die. Two tiny paper flowers and dots from a Viva Pearl Pen finished this card. I left the sentiment off and I'll add it to the inside when I'm ready to use this card.

Just a few things to keep in mind as you play...

You aren't required to use SNSS digi images to play along, but you must use ONLY digital images for our challenge.

You can link up your card right here on the SNSDC blog. If the link feature is down, please add a link with your comment.

When uploading to online galleries, please use keyword SNSDC45

And here is the list of DT blogs you'll want to visit to see their beautiful "green-inspired" creations!!

And one last thing....

For every card you enter into our challenges throughout March, you'll earn one  eligible entry to win 3 digis of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store. Plus, if your card includes SNSS digi images, it will earn 2 entries. Be sure to play along every week because the more you play and/or use SNSS digi images, the more chances you'll have to win!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping! Good luck everyone!
