Amazing Simon Says Stamp blog hop - you will not want to miss this!!!


For the first time ever we are joining forces with our challenge blogs;

Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to bring you a SUPER hop to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays and the crafting fun you can have throughout!

To help celebrate we will be giving a $100 SHOPPING SPREE to the winner of this hop!



The theme for both challenges this week will be HOLIDAY FUN. Your entry can beHalloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!



At each Design Team member’s blog you will find a clue, you need to collect all the clues to form a code. The complete code will be your password to enter the Grand Prize draw. At each blog you will need to leave a comment and on the last blog you must leave a direct link to the project you have made for this challenge. The Blog hop will start at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on September 8th, 2010 at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog and will finish on September 15th, 2010 at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. During the hop you will visit all of the Design Team member’s blogs and each blog will tell you where to go next for the following clue! If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp and Show … just remember you need to keep the clues in the correct order. Once you have made your project and linked it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog you need to comment your link number together with the correct code in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog under the comments section of that week in order to be entered into the draw.

Added bonus! You will have a chance to win goodies from each HOP! Each DT member will be giving away an ingredient to make their creation, so don’t forget to comment throughout your hop!



The winner will be randomly drawn from all the correct answers for the Grand Prize next Wednesday. Remember you must have entered the Challenge and completed the blog hop to be eligible to win this $100 SHOPPING SPREE- courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Store!!



Good Luck Everyone!


You should have arrived on my blog from Jane's blog. If you didn't then hop right back here and start from the beginning!!

Here is my card I made for the hop. Did you all know that Simon Says Stamp Store now sells Lili of the Valley stamps??? I love them, they are so cute and really cheap too!



Lots of sparkle here and lots of flowers too. I love flowers on my card and this is why you can have the chance to win these beautiful Prima hydrangeas from Simon Says Stamp when you take part in the hop fun!! To enter my candy you must make a card and enter it on the challenge blog. When you have done that come back here and leave me a direct link to your card using the little blue frog (inlinkz) below.




So now you have read all that .... are you still here??? you will probably want to know what my clue is .........
