Thank you for hopping along our fabulous new release hop! I sure hope you love all the new releases as much as I do!!! YNS Illustrators Fhiona, Dale and Franfou designed some super amazing stamps and the DT rocked this hop with all their fabulous creations! I adore my talented team and would like to thank them once again for all their creativity and hard work! Big hugs to all of you!
Every month I stamp with a super fun loving group of women and last week we made these adorable tent cards! Thanks Sheryl for introducing me to this fun and easy style of card. I used Shopper Fhiona Single for the larger card and then decided to make a mini card using Mini Bubbly Fun Fhiona. The greetings are from the Mini Greetings stamp set which is great for so many different occasions and many of you know that I am totally addicted to this set!!!

The secret hop blogger and the random number was picked by my loving hubby, Chris. He needed to feel like he was helping me with something because he has been laying on the couch for a week now! No he’s not lazy, he just has some minor surgery and he needs rest to get all better and back to his normal helpful self and trust me I can’t wait until he his back on his feet again! :o)

Ok so without further ado here is our random draw hop winner!!!!
