We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - Beate Johns, Deb Routledge, Jacque Beddingfield and Elaine Hughes!

The Whimsy Stamps DT have been sneak peeking these fabulous stamps for the past 4 days, so if you missed them be sure to hop on over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for some more inspiration.

The hop starts today (Wednesday March 16th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday March 23rd at noon EST.

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 one of the secret mini candy stops :)  Denise has generously let me give away the Time Flies set:


To be eligible for this set, please leave your entry in InLinkz below by 12pm noon, March 23, 2011.

For my blog hop creation I used Celebrate Big! by Crissy Armstrong and a few of the ticket stamps from the Treasured Moments Tickets Sentiments.  I also used the Balloon Sentiments stamp set released last month for the balloons and sentiments; these sentiments go so well with Crissy's birthday-themed images releasing today!  We also have a matching Balloon Dies Set to cut out the Balloon stamps.


Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Celebrate Big!, Treasured Moments Tickets Sentiments, Balloon Sentiments stamp set; Medium: Distress reinkers; Paper: DCWV All About The Girls Stack; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Tim Holtz Ticket Strip die, ribbon, baker's twine, button

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by heading on over to Erin's blog.  She has a wonderful creation waiting for you!

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 this month's new release!
