The very first Flaunt It Fridays challenge is to use the snowman cut on page 29 of the Winter Frolic cartridge. Since this week's challenge was meant as an opportunity to get to know everyone on the Flaunt It Fridays team, I thought I would share this card with all of you!

I was born and raised in Hawaii and have been living on the mainland for the past 4 or so years. So for me, snowmen are not a part of my childhood memories. This is Sunny the Sandman wishing you "Mele Kalikimaka," which means "Merry Christmas" in Hawaiian! All of the cuts are from the Winter Frolic cartridge, except for the coconut tree, which is from Life Is a Beach.

For our Blog Hop projects, we were to use any cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge. I will be the first to admit that I rarely use the tag or card functions on my cartridges. So for this project, I used THREE of them! I used the tag function on these cuts: Ornament2, Cake, and Tree1. For these tags, I cut the tag and the tag shift pieces. I then glittered the cut out area by placing a piece of adhesive behind the cut out area and sprinkling it with glitter. When you adhere the 2 layers of the tag together, you never see the adhesive used for the glitter.

One randomly selected person who is a follower and comments on this post will win the Sunny the Sandman card and the set of tags so please leave a way to contact you!

Now you're off to visit Raven's Blog for the last stop on the hop. Don't forget that after you check out Raven's projects, to go back to the Flaunt It Fridays blog to let then know that you've visited and commented at every stop on the hop.

Thanks for joining us and I can't wait to Flaunt It with you again next Friday! :)
