They're Baaaack Blog Hop

Good morning!  Are you ready for a Blog Hop, and a release Par-Tay?  I sure hope so, because we're celebrating at Sweet -n Sassy stamps, and we're celebrating B-I-G!  Sweet -n Sassy Stamps has brought back their clear line of stamps. You asked, SNSS listened, and now we're celebrating the release!!!  Woooohooo!!!!!!  Today you can hop along for the new release blog hop, and tonight, you can join us for a release party at 8 p.m. Eastern time in our group forum on SNR Card Universe.  There are two free stamp sets to be given away, but to be elegible to win, you'll need to visit each design team members blog, and leave a comment.  Two of the DT gals (Shhhhh... it's a secret which two... You'll have to visit them and find out.) will be giving away the free stamps, and the winners will be announced at the release party tonight.   The hop starts at the Sweet -n Sassy Digi Blog, and then you'll hop to the DT blogs listed below, in no particular order.    

Ceal, Janette, Korin, Kim, Darsie Leah, Lisa, Lorie (You're here), Nicole, Tricia, and Nancy


For my card today, I used the newly released June Rose clear stamp set, which is another of the beautiful Birth Month Flowers illustrated by Leah Cornelius.  I colored the image with my Copic markers, and used a good dose of Tim Holtz distress ink for the edges of the paper which comes from Making Memories Vintage Findings line.   The sketch for this card is from the Sweet Stop Challenge this week.

"Don't forget the grand finale, a FUN-tastic release party, tonight in our SNR forum at 8pm EST! Find out who won our fabulous blog hop prizes, chat with the DT, play along in our games and challenges for a chance at MORE prizes, make new friends and be inspired! Plus, we have a few special surprises for ALL release party attendees, so you won't want to miss the fun :). We'll see you tonight!"

Thanks for hopping by today, and don't forget to visit the SNSS gals listed for this blog hop, so that you get your name in the hat for the free stamps to be given away!  Have a blessed day, and happy stamping!

Love ya, 
T
