If you would like to hop along with us today and you didn’t arrive from Marley van der Heijden's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Zoe’s blog.

The hop starts today (Wednesday August 17th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday August 24th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 7 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 5 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*


And here is my creation featuring our latest and greatest products!!


I've used the incredible Vintage Seed Packet stamps by Raindrop Echo Designs, as well as the Elegant Butterfly Die to create this Ode-To-Vintage creation!!
I tried, I really did, but without something cute and cuddly on there, I just feel weird about this one!! Maybe a slathering of flowers is in order to bridge the gap? Maybe not...



So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to Ann Vento’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!
