From The Heart Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!


Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We are celebrating birthdays today!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the image that the designer used. And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

We are also having a little word search today. As you stop on each blog collect the special letter they have for you. Put the letters together for a message. Everyone who figures out the message can use it as a code to receive 50% off of one image in the birthday section of the FTHS shop. The code will be good until Monday Nov. 4th at 6 am, EST. My letter for you is "H."

If you have arrived from Michelle H's blog, you are in the right place, if not you can hop to the beginning and start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss a thing.

Today I'm using Happy Mail and Hello Sentiments on my card.  I colored the image with Copic Markers:  W7, W5, W3, W1, B23, B21, R29, R27, R24, R21, YG17, Y38, YR15, Y32, E59, E57, E43, E42, E81.  Papers are from Simple Stories' Summer Fresh collection.  Dies are from Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn Designs.  I added some color with Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs.

Now head over to Tress' blog and see what she has created!

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday November 4th at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday November 6th.
