The hop begins 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, now on to my creation for the hop! I decided to make an easel card using "Tippy by the Tail" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and "Treasured Moments Tickets" designed by Ann Vento.

I started with some MME papers from the Fine and Dandy collection. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and embellished with ribbon, buttons, twine, sticky gems, and pennants created with more designer paper and our new Shapeology Banner Pennants Die Set.

The image was colored with copics and then cut out and adhered to a dry embossed circle created with circle Nestabilities and the Swiss Dots CB folder. I also added some stickles to the gift bow, but it's not showing up great in the photo.

This is the bottom layer with the pennants. Ann has created a fab set of 3 pieces that can be matted together as I have done, or each used as separate pieces. We also have included alignment tools so you can add stamped letters, words, or images and align with the tool before cutting! The sentiment on this section is from the new "Treasured Moments Ticket" set and the dangly sentiment on the top portion comes with the "Tippy by the Tail" image stamp.

This card fits challenges at:
Anything Goes Challenge - Die Cuts
Claudia & Co -  Real/Faux Stitching, 2DP, buttons, sentiment, circle, scallops.
Clear It Out! - Buttons
Cuttlebug Spot - must include dry embossing - Embellish with Twine
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday
Cupcake Craft -Up in the Air with option of green
Kaboodle Doodles - Happy Birthday
Make it Monday - anything goes
Shabby Tea Room - Party Time - Birthday or Celebration
The Outlawz - Sentiment plus Animals

Well that's my creation for you today, so now it's time for you to continue the hop by popping on over to the amazingly talented Lori's blog. But before you go, I do have a little candy chance for you too! One lucky hopper will win the new KennyK "Strong Island" rubber stamp! To enter, please leave your name and link using the linky feature below! Good luck and happy hopping!
