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 Smell The Flowers by Crissy Armstrong. For sentiment I used a stamp from Postage Stamps set which I cut out with a matching die.
The colouring is done with distress inks.
The flowers and leaves are a combination of Marianne's dies and Papermania punches and turned to my beloved OA papers again.
So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Iris'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!

Hugs

Bambie and Thumper .... this is so cute and I love the colors!! :D I like the way you shaded the deer, especially the legs - very nice details. However, I'm jealous of your flowers - I've tried many times to hand make my flowers with little success. Luckily there are plenty of companies out there who can make them for me! LOL Just dropping by to send you some hugs. Hope you're day is getting along well.
*Hugs* Barbara

Hi Annika,

You've been in my thoughts and prayers. I'm just wondering how you are doing. I'm concerned because I haven't seen any beautiful new work from you in over two weeks. I know you were going to Estonia, but thought you would be back in action by now. I'm missing seeing your gorgeous work. Hope you and your family are doing okay.

Hugs,
Linda
