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*


For my blog hop creation I used a few of the new stamps. First as a layer of the card the Postcard Background stamp designed by Ann Vento along with the new Everyday Mini Postage Stamps (and Mini Postage die) for the sentiment and then the image is the new Curious Little Fairy by Meljen's Designs.

The papers are Memory Box and the edges have been stitched on the sewing machine. I've colored the image with copics and then highlighted with stickles glitter. The image was framed with circle nesties. I've embellished with flowers, ribbon, gems, and chandelier crystals.

This card fits the challenges at:
Anita Be Stampin' - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps For The Ladies
Top Tip Tuesday -  Spring Has Sprung
Tuesday Throwdown - Sparkle & Bling
DDH Challenges -  Stitches
Incy Wincy Designs - flower frenzy
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Stamp-N-Doodle -  Girly
Dream Valley Challenges - Things with wings

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, now it's time for you to continue the hop by stopping on over to our talented Crissy's blog. I know she will have something gorgeous to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:


I hope you enjoy the new release! Happy hopping!
