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. We also have 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp!

I'm one of those prize stops!  Denise kindly let me give away the Street Art Background Stamp.  I really hope you guys like this background stamp! I think it suits the KennyK images pretty well and there are lots of possibilities.

To enter for a chance to win this stamp, just enter your information into InLinkz. You do NOT need a blog to enter - you can leave the URL blank and just fill in the Name and Email and click Submit. 

I have used the  Street Art Background Stamp in the card below along with the new Queens Cutie KennyK stamp and I even managed to use Crissy's Fancy Bench, which I thought actually worked out okay!  I just somehow need to work in a Meljen's image and I would have managed to use all of Whimsy's rubber artists on here, lol.  I'm really having a lot of fun masking these days, as evidenced by the cards below :)  I almost managed to use all the new release stamps for this blog hop and for the sneak peeks.  I wasn't able to use two KennyK stamps and one of Crissy's stamps.

Did you know?  The Welcome Baby Die Set coordinates perfectly with the Welcome Baby Sentiments set so that all the mini letter seals fit into the rattle and almost all of the sentiments fit in the bib!
