The hop starts today (Wednesday February 9th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday February 16th 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. Also, we 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 Crissy's beautiful image 'Smell the flowers'. I've water coloured with distress inks and made a little banner cut on the cricut to echo the spring theme. One of Ann's gorgeous postmark sentiments was perfect to add to the image, these are so versatile and I've added lots of sparkle with gel pens.


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