Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop!

Hi there and happy Friday!  I am excited that today has finally arrived...it's time for the Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop!  The theme of this hop is winter and I'm thrilled to be a part of it because I adore all things Lawn Fawn AND this is my first time participating in a blog hop (yay)!  If you are following along on the hop, you should have come here from Cheryl Hutcherson's blog. 


My ALL-TIME favorite winter animal is the penguin and I've had this design in mind for a while. Here is the card that I created for today:


I used Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Snow stamp set (penguins, reindeer, and igloo), Winter Bunny (sleigh), Let it Snow (sentiment), Sweet Christmas (trees), Hats Off to You (santa hat), Year Two (presents), and Bake Me a Cake (christmas lights).  I started by masking the moon and inking the background of the scene with Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, and Iced Spruce distress inks and used Perfect Pearls mist to create some sparkle in the sky.  I added fine glitter to the snowbank to create dimension and an icy effect.  From the Winter Bunny Stamp set, I made Santa's sleigh by masking off the bunny. I cut and colored the penguins, reindeer, igloo, and trees and adhered them to the scene.  

And of course, even penguins need some fun Christmas decorations, so I added "lights" to the igloo.  I finished the scene off with red lawn trimmings and a gold bell for rudolph.  The final card came to 7 x 4.5 inches.  Here's another look:


The next stop on the hop is Valerie Ward's blog.  Be sure to check out all of the projects on the hop.  I know I'm excited to see what these talented ladies have created! Lawnscaping has put together a lot of great prizes, so make sure to leave some love at every stop along the way by Sunday, 12/15 at 11:59PM EST.  

Thanks for coming by and happy crafting!
