Warm Winter Wishes Blog Hop!

Hellooo!! And welcome to another inspiring blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Carolyn King's newest set called Warm Winter Wishes...and once again, Cammie is donating all of her proceeds from the sale of this stamp to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of her Grandmother...how awesome is that?? Here is what I decided to do for tonights hop:



I decided to make a coaster set. I purchased these glass coasters at Hobby Lobby on clearance, I think they were about 5 bucks for them. They have an insert for a picture in them, so I colored the adorable snowman in the set and inserted him! I also added glitter for the snow...stamped some snowflakes on the glass and coaster holder with white Stayz On ink and was done! I love how this turned out too!

For even more inspiration visit Carolyn King - the Illustrator of Warm Winter Wishes and the Idea Center gallery HERE.

Then, check in with Carolyn's special guest designers:


And, finally stop by these GinaK Designer's blog participating in the hop tonight:

Ok, that is all from me tonight! Dont forget about all the fun snippets this week on Gina's blog! And then our previews will start Monday, wooohooo! I am excited once again! LOL!
