A StampFairy Blog Hop

Good morning friends.  I have a special post for you today.  StampFairy is celebrating its birthday, so Gerda and the Stampfairies are hosting a blog hop.  And guess what?  Everyone who completes the hop wins a prize!  Now, how great is that?

Gerda has released two very special collections showcasing two of her delightful characters.  These collections showcase the characters in 12 monthly themes throughout the year and the Stampfairies have each created a calendar using these images.  Some of us are teasing you with only a month or two of our calendars, but some of my teamies will be sharing the entire 12-month calendar with you!

Please make sure that you leave a comment on each teamie's blog and collect a letter from each blog along the trip.  The letters are randomly placed but will spell a short phrase.  Once you've completed the hop, left your comments at each and every blog, collected your letters, then you need to work out the phrase and email it to Gerda at webmaster@stampfairy.com.  This will get you a freebie image.  That's right, a freebie for everyone who completes the hop and emails the correct phrase to Gerda.  And I'll let you in on a little secret:  the freebie image is adorable!

So, let's get on with the hop.  If you have arrived here from Sharon's blog then you are in the right place.  If not, please pop back to the StampFairy Blog to start at the beginning so you don't miss anyone.

My calendar showcases Barry and I'm sharing the months of April, November and December.  I'll share the recipe for each calendar page below in case you're interested.  I will be finishing my calendar pages over the next couple of weeks and then I'll assemble it with my bind-it-all. 



The next stop on the hop is Martina's blog, but be sure you leave me a comment first so that you qualify for the freebie.  You also need to make note of this letter:


Thank you so much for stopping by.  The blog hop ends December 31, 2011, so get hopping before the deadline.  If you get lost along the way, hop back to the StampFairy Blog to find the list of blogs.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs, Anita
