Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day!

Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Release Day Blog Hop! This month we have are doing something really fun - the Design Divas and the Digi Team are hopping together, to celebrate the fabulous clear stamps, digis, and dies being released tonight!! Grab your favorite cuppa and maybe some of that yummy chocolate the kids collected this week ;) and get ready for some amazing eye candy! Don't forget to join us tonight at 8:00PM EST in our member company forums over on Splitcoaststampers - we have a great release party planned! There will be full reveals of all of the stamp sets, digis and dies, plus challenges AND prizes!!!

If you have been following along already you should have come from Carol Longacre's blog. If you are just starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way!
The first project I'm sharing today is from the new set Snowflake Flourish, designed by Dina Kowal.  I'm not even going to pretend...I have a HUGE crush on this set.  I actually think about it all the time!!! Isn't that snowflake flourish beyond gorgeous?!?!  And the font on the sentiment makes me *swoon*!
My second project uses the set Freezin' Season, designed by Korin Sutherland.  I'm SO excited these owls are now available in a clear stamp set!  For this card, I used the sketch from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge this week.  I let my darling daughter pick which image and sentiment to use on this card.  Clearly, the apple does not fall far from the tree, since she picked my beloved owls, lol!

Your next stop on the hop is Cathy McCauley - just wait until you see what she has created for you!!  Just in case there are any hiccups along the way, here is a list of all the fabulous stops on the hop today:
Once you have stopped by each blog, head back to the SNSS blog and leave a comment letting us know what you think of our November release. You won't want to forget this step because we've got a HUGE prize up for grabs.....the ENTIRE NOVEMBER RELEASE valued at over $130!!!!! That's 6 stamp sets, 3 die sets and 11 digis!! Tonight at the release party we'll announce our randomly drawn winner from the comments on the SNSS blog post.

What a fabulous take on the snowflake image. I would have never thought about stamping in in brown tones, but what a wonderful idea. It looks gorgeous. Your second card is just precious. I was wondering when your daughter will be starting her own blog so showcase her creative talents to all of us out here in blog land.
