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!



For my blog hop creation I used the new image stamp "Wee Snippet and Mystic" along with a sentiment from the new "Magical Mini Letter Seals". Crissy has illustrated these beautiful new characters called Mystic and Wee Snippet and Ann has done a fabulous job creating a sentiment set to coordinate perfectly.

My image was colored using Copics and some Stickles accents. I've used papers from Memory Box and distressed all the edges. The Double Scallop Border Die is accenting the edge of one paper layer and has been embellished with ribbon, a button, twine, and a mushroom charm (also available at Whimsy). The rest of the card was embellished with lots of flowers, more glitter, and some butterflies cut from the papers. The sentiment was stamped with brown ink and it says "Fairy Happy Birthday".

This card fits the challenges at:
Crafts and Me - Anything goes, Optional Kraft
Crafty Creations - Flowers, Patterned paper, ribbon
Divas by Design - For the Girls
Creative Card Crew - Cute & Girly
Flutterby Wednesdays - must include butterfly, fairy or angel - #155 Open, Optional Sketch*
