The hop starts today (Wednesday May 18th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday May 25th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws! We have not one but TWO grand prize draws, so two lucky hoppers will win a large selection of new release stamps. Grand Prize 1 will be for those who help us advertise the hop, and Grand Prize 2 will be for those who hop along with us. We also have 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so if you haven't found them you'll just have go back to the beginning and start hopping! *wink*

For my blog hop creation I used Wee Snippet and Mystic drawn by Crissy Armstrong along with the new Magical Mini Letter Seals by Ann Vento, I also used the Double Scallop Border Die from our Shapeology Collection.


I've coloured the image in distress inks and pencils, the papers are a mix of spotty dotty fun, October Afternoon (pink) and 3 Bugs in a Rug (blue), the flowers are an assortment of stash stuff. I have gone through 3 attempts at photographing today, but it is overcast, but I must say, I tried tried and tried again on the photos here, lol!!



So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Chris Olsen's blog.

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:



Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!

Hugs, stephanne
