We are hoppin' with Skipping Stones!


Ok ladies, so now that you have seen my posts using Skipping Stones Designs all throughout the month of December, how about celebrating the official opening of Heather's new store and welcoming 2 new members to their DT with a blog hop, TONS of blog candy and a SALE? I thought you might like that! lol




Here's how it works...if you happened to stumble upon my blog and haven't started at the beginning then start your journey from Angela's Sparkle and Bling blog. Once you arrive there, simply enjoy the creations using the Skipping Stones Designs Stamps and leave a few comments along the way to enter yourself in every one's blog candy then follow the links to the next blog in the line-up.

If you guys are super sleuths then you will notice that there are 4 stamp sets (new stamp sets not yet released) are be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where *insert wicked grin here* so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! The more comments you leave the better your chances of winning are! The winners will be announced on Friday January 8th over at Skipping Stones Design!



My card for this hop is eerily similar to the one I made for the SSD01 sketch (I know). But it's not my fault I can assure you! My gram loved the card that I made so much, that she asked me to make one similar to it using the same papers for her BFF's birthday! How could I refuse? To my credit, I did change it up a little for you guys ;)

So are you all ready to hear about the SALE that is happening and all about my blog candy? First off, Heather is offering 25% off all stamps today and tomorrow (Jan 5 & 6) as well as free shipping on orders over $30 including international purchases!! Secondly, I would just like to say....feast your eyes upon this.....


I can already hear to ooooohhhhing and aaawwwing! This my dears is 3 sets of 4x6 stamps that I will be giving away to 1 lucky winner!!!! All you have to do is leave me a little lovin' in the comment department and I will post the winner here on January 8th! Easy peasey, lemon squeezy!

So now it's your turn to get ready, set....and HOP to your next stop to revel over Erin's creation at:

Erin Grotegut over at Inky Smiles


Thanks for joining me and don't forget to have some fun along the way!
