Happy Little Stampers - Blog Hop

Good evening all.

A day spent mainly washing, ironing, sorting clothes out and cooking! Have managed a little essential crafting but more to do before I leave for Italy.

My second post today...if you'd like to see my card for the Christmas Card Club click here.

Welcome to Happy Little Stampers first release blog hop. We hope you like what you see. We have four new sets of stamps and to celebrate we are having a blog hop with prizes.



How to win?
Comment on the HLS blog and then continue to our designers. You must comment on all the blogs in the hop to be eligible for prizes.
Grand Prize
One lucky commenter (selected randomly) will win the whole issue! This is four sets of stamps with a value of AUD$69
Minor Prizes
Four lucky commenters (selected randomly) will win a gift certificate to the HLS store!
The blog hop will last for a week giving you enough time to hop through and check out what the designers have been creating.
You should have come here from Carol's blog. If you get lost, don't despair...just start back at the Happy Little Stampers blog.

My card has been created using Mixed Christmas Sentiments



Using several of the sentiments I lined them up on a large acrylic block then stamped and heat embossed with white EP. I then used three shades of DI to ink the card (shabby shutters, lime citron and evergreen bough). Christmas tree die from Spellbinders. Mat die from Wplus9. Sequins and gems from my stash.
I hope I have inspired you today with my card. The other designers and I have had so much fun playing with these stamps! Next you need to hop on over to Susan's blog.
