This issue is crammed full of crafty goodness and best of all it's FREE! Just click the link below and you will be taken to the magazine where you can read it online or download it and save to your computer.

The hop starts today (Wednesday August 17th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday August 24th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 7 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 5 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp!

I'm one of those prize draws!  I'm giving away the Retro Bottle Cap Sentiments set pictured below. I may be biased, but I really like this set.  The words are so fun and really remind me of good ol' soda pop bottles :)

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. 

Now, on to my creation for the hop! I almost didn't have a creation today!  I don't know what I would have done, maybe just do a digital version of a card or something, haha.  The magazine took up more time than I thought and of course, being the procrastinator that I am, I was scrambling to take care of things at the last minute.  It's a rather simple card, though the coloring does look better in the person.  I couldn't take a decent picture at all!

And and of course it'd probably be helpful if I mentioned the stamps, right?  For this card, I used Buggin' Drummer from KennyK and the Film Marker Sentiments.

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Buggin' Drummer, Film Marker Sentiments.; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Coloring medium: Copics on X-press It Blending Card; Paper: BasicGrey; Embellishments: twine

Now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to the amazingly talented, dedicated and just all-around gorgeous Iris!!
