The hop starts today (Wednesday June 15th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday June 22nd 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 the newly released Bart's BBQ by Crissy Armstrong along with the new Good Life Tickets by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. I painted Bart in distress inks and the papers are October Afternoon. I left this super simple and flat so I can pop it in the mail with no dilemmas.


So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Deb Mitchell'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!

Biggest Hugs, stephanne
