The hop starts today (Wednesday March 16th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday March 23rd 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*

Ok onto my blog hop creation now. For my card I used Benny and Joon Having Cake by Crissy Armstrong:

I colored these cuties using my Copics. DP is from MME's new Stella & Rose Collection: Hazel. The pennant garland is made using the new Whimsy Shapeology Banner Pennant Die Set. The ticket sentiment is from the new Treasured Moments Tickets, stamoped with Memento Cocoa Dye Ink onto kraft cardstock and cut out with the Whimsy Ticket die. The brown cherry blossoms are Whimsy Buds and available here.


 The mini roses and Hydrangea are from Prima. Ribbon is from my stash and the gem brad is from Paper Studio. I also used Stickles (Cinnamon, Stardust and Turquoise) to set some highlights.
This is also my take on this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch by Jacque.
It's time now for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Stephanne's blog.

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

Love & hugs,
