If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Simonne's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Crystal’s blog.

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*

For my blog hop creation I used .... Valerie and kitty sitting pretty by Crissy Armstrong, a sentiment from the Time Flies set, Treasured Moments tickets and the Spring Letter Seals designed by Raindrop Echo Designs.  I also used the banner  pennants die set. I used the Whimsy ticket die to cut out the tickets.
I love to decorate gift bags, so much nicer than shop bought ones.   Along with the new Whimsy stamps I used Tim Holtz papers and the new Tim Holtz die 'mini paper rosettes'.

I kept the back very simple just adding a spring letter seal stamp.

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Annika'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 releases!
