If you would like to hop along with us today and you didn’t arrive from Ann’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 to go back to the beginning and start hopping! ;-) 

Onto my blog hop creation now....

-click on the photos for larger view-
I colored Kenny K's 'Wedding Garter' with my Copics. DP is from BG Whisteria Collection. Sentiments are from the new 'Film Makers' set. I also used the new and matching Fim Makers Die and the 'Elegant Flourishes Die'. Cherry blossoms are Whimsy Buds. The heart ribbon slider and crystal stems are also available at Whimsy's embellishment section.

Here are a few more photos of my creation:



I kept the inside without too many layers as I still wanted the card to shut flat!


 I hope I could inspire you a bit with my creation!
So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to Elaine'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! 

Hugs,
