*Giveaway Closed* 1st "Flaunt it Friday" Challenge and Blog Hop!

Happy Friday!

I am so excited because not only is today the 1st day of the "Flaunt it Friday" challenge but we are also having a blog hop to celebrate!

 If you have arrived here from Jess's blog then you are in the right place!  If not, CLICK HERE to start at the beginning. Remember to leave a comment on every stop along the way, and leave a 2nd comment on the Flaunt It Fridays blog saying you've visited everyone and left a comment at each stop, for a 2nd chance to win the Grand Prize sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps!

The 1st challenge is to create a project around the snowman cut on page 29 of the Winter Frolic Cricut cart! No worries though if you don't have the cart... you can use any other snowman cut that you have.

For the 1st challenge, I created a card.
The papers are from the DCWV "Tis' the Season" paper stacks. You can't really see it, but I also used an Action Wobble on the snowman.
 The twine is from The Twinery and the sentiment stamp is from the Our 2 Angles in Heaven Stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps.
The edge punch is the Fiskars Apron Lace punch.
The sweet little face stamp is from the Happy Lashes PKS stamp set. 

On to the blog hop part of this post....

For the blog hop I created this holiday banner. We were asked to use another cut from the Winter Frolic cart. I choose to use the Carolers from page 45. 
Banners can be so hard to photograph!
The papers are from DCWV and My Minds Eye.
The flag pieces of the banner were cut from the Birthday Bash cart, at 5". The carolers were cut at 2 1/2". I ended up separating them so that they would fit better on the flags.
  Their faces are from the Basic Paper Doll Faces from PKS.
 I found the oval and cut them at 2 3/4" and the letters were cut from the Country Living cart at 2 1/4".
I covered the letters with Martha Stewart's micro beads, color Brownstone and strung it with a  6" cream tulle.
