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*

Here is my blog hop creation:

I used 'Fairy Toadstools' and 'Little Fairy Friend' from the new Meljens Collection and masked them together. I colored with Copics (skin) and Prismas (no OMS or blender used). To create the background I airbrushed, sprayed some adhesive on and sprinkled it with super fine glitter. For the 3D effect on the grass I used Flower Soft. The sentiment is from the new Party Mini Letter Seals. DP is from Basic Grey.

Here is a close-up on the image:

 I added even more glitz with Stickles to her wings and to the mushroom caps.




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

In the case you got lost, 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,
