Belles and Whistles "Snowbabies" blog hop........

Good Morning!!!
Today we have another absolutely adorable
new winter collection from Belles and Whistles
to share with you: The Snowbabies!!!

These are just the cutest images ~ love every single
one of them!!   To get a proper start on the hop make sure
to go back to the Belles and Whistles blog to start off right.

Seeing that it is breast cancer awareness month we have decided to 
do a special hop in honor of both Jacque and Elise.
Both these beautiful and strong ladies have been affected by
Breast cancer so Summer
is going to be donating 10% of the sales of this collection
to go for research in their honor.

Right, now on with the hop. You should have come from
Anki's beautiful sneak peek, if so you are on the right track.
Today I get the honor of showcasing "Snow Angel".
I think she is just adorable and reminds me of my three!

We decided on a hot drink hop so I went with some
These are my kids favorite after playing in the snow!

To show my support for breast cancer awareness I
had to use pink and ribbon on my tag card.
The papers are Basic Grey, sentiment is Catslife Press
and the snowflake is cut with my cuttlebug.

My image is colored again with distress ink and
twinkling h2o's. I have added glitter to the snow and
some fun flock to the trim of her coat.
Isn't she just adorable and so fun to color!!

Just had to show you a shot of my cocoa and marshmallows!
Believe it or not but these marshmallows are so good.
I sprinkled mine with powdered sugar and they
are just like the real thing but you can cut them into
cute shapes. Mine are supposed to be snowflakes. LOL

Ok that is my peek it is time to send you on your way now
to Gini's adorable peek of Catch-a-flake.
Don't forget to leave comments along the way because
as in Belles and Whistles fashion each DT member
will be giving away their preview stamp and then Summer
will be giving away the whole set!!! This is one you
won't want to miss out on. 

Pre-orders start today and will ship out
Friday, October 27th!!!

Just had to throw this picture in of my three snowbabies
in the snow last year:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you
have a fabulous time on the hop!!!

Your photo had so many fun elements with the cup of homemade marshmallows (recipe needed) the snowflake and ribbon on the jar of cocoa mix and then your fabulous tag! You know how to stage the ensemble beautifully! Love, love, love how you colored your tag carad and how beautiful it came out. The picture of your girls goes so perfectly. I LOVE it!!!

Sandy said...

Blonde moment there! I guess I should've clicked on the word marshmallows and seen the recipe! I will try these for SURE!

Your creations ALWAYS inspire me!

Oma said...

This is one of my favourite new images. I can remember making snow angels when I was a child. Now I enjoy watching my granddaughters make snow angels. The cocoa looks delish!

Arvet said...

Wounderfuk work all together! This is my favourite stamp in this collection. It reminds me of my mother who loves to make snowangels. Every year she feel an urge to make at least one angel in the snow.
At age 78 she usually go out in the middle of the night just to be sure that nobody can see her do them.
Her fear is that she wouldn´t be able to get up from the ground again but as she says with a smile - "if I don´t, I will die as a happy woman"!
Well, that´s my mum in a nutshell.
Love the pic of your kids.

Louise said...

Love the tag, colors are soft and the touch of ribbon adds to it all.

PJ said...

Your card is just perfect for the image, I just love Elizabeth's designs. The snow image reminds me of my daughter when she was young and we went skiing. There are many of us out there who are also breast cancer survivor's including myself. It has only been 2 years since I faced this demon and I hope I never see it again! It is extremely important to do breast self-examination, it could very save your life. Thank you for your donation to the cause.

Mina said...
