Hanna Stamps October Release Blog Hop!

Sunday, October 4, 2009

Welcome to the Hanna Stamps Blog Hop celebrating the October release!!

EDIT: The Blog Hop is now closed! Thank you for playing along! Winners will be announced at the release party which starts at 9pm EST tonight in the Hanna Stamps SCS forum.

The eye candy on this hop has just been phenomenal!! If you haven't stopped by my blog via Silke's blog, then head over to Kristi's blog to start your hop there! You're not going to want to miss a single stop along this hop because since this is Hanna Stamp's second anniversary, every Hanna girl is giving away a Riley! And because this is the last stop in the hop, I am giving away a $50 gift certificate to Hanna Stamps!! Woohoooooo!!


I created two cards for you tonight. Both cards use the new 'Detective Hanna' set about to be released this Monday night. This first one uses this week's Friday Sketchers #72 layout and the main image from the set. Immediately after making this card I remembered about those murder/mystery dinner parties that were all the rage a few years ago. Wouldn't Detective Hanna make great invitations for one of those parties?? :) Makes me want to host one!

This second card uses one of the many accessories in the set to make this simple card. I used this week's sketch from Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try and some of that great Marrakech paper from Basic Grey.

Ok, so don't forget to leave a comment on this post to be in the running to win a $5o gift certificate to Hanna Stamps! The blog hop will be open until 7PM EST tomorrow, Monday October 5th. The winners will be announced at the Hanna Stamps release party being held in the SCS forum, starting at 9PM EST - so be there....or be square! :D

Thanks so much for hopping with us!!

Ohhhh! Sandra, your work is always jaw dropping and these are no exception ..... but that shine bright card just brought little tears to my eyes! It reminded me of a candle light vigil for some reason in memory of a dear loved one .... see! How versatile Hanna stamps can be, lol! TFS - so glad I stopped in today! :)
