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.

For my blog hop creation I used ...... the darling Baby of Mine stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong!!  I also used the Welcome Baby sentiments and Baby dies designed by our very own Ann Vento!!

The designer paper is Prima Botanical and the die used on the bottom of the easel is the Whimsy Shapeology Double Scallop Border die.The ribbon is blue silk from May Arts which I tied with the bow easy.  The flowers are a combo of prima's, ZVA Creative flowers and some which were received in a RAK from a dear friend!! I had fun coloring the image with copics and adding some paper piecing as well!!


This card was also made for the Sunday's With Crissy challenge which was to use flowers!!  How easy is that.  It can be flowered paper, paper flowers, a flower image, a flower embellishment...anything with flowers.

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Ann's blog.
