It's Time to Hop!

Hello peeps!  It's another big day at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Kerry has a new release of Christmas stamps so we are having a blog hop to celebrate.  You should have come from Pam's blog.  If you didn't, you can stop by Kerry's blog as she's the first stop on the hop.




Our lovely Amanda chose our theme this week and she chose Christmas in June.  I used the new O Christmas Tree image on my card.  I colored this sweet scene with my copics and colored pencils.  I added some Glamour dust to some of the tree ornaments and Glossy Accents to others.  I punched my snowflakes and added lots of Glamour Dust and a little pearl to each one.  Some ribbon and a bow finished my card.  The sentiment  (along with another sentiment) is included in the set.    


So here are the rules of the hop: 
     -  Display the blog hop banner on your blog
     -  Visit each DT blog and leave a comment on each of the blog hop posts
     -  Leave a comment on the challenge blog stating which of the new stamps is your favorite

So do you want to know what the prizes are?  Well of course you do!  The 1st prize is the full set of all 4 stamps.  Then 5 runners-up will receive one stamp of their choice from the new release.  The winner and runners-up will all be chosen at random.  The hop closes at 12 noon GMT on Monday, July 4 and the winners will be announced at 9 am GMT on Tuesday, July 5.  Please remember you can also enter our challenge this week for a chance to win a stamp.



So your next stop on the hop is the fabulously talented Amanda.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
