A Little Cupcake told Me …. It’s Blog Hop Time!

3wm

Hi everyone …. A little cupcake told me that it is time for a Stamps and Smiles Blog hop. If you didn’t hop onto my blog from Cindy Haffner’s blog then you may want to hop on over there first before going any further so you don’t miss out on any of the fun today!

Stamps and Smiles are releasing 5 new stamp sets today and to celebrate we are having a blog hop, you also have the opportunity to win some fun prizes along the way. Please stop at all of the designers blogs. Each of the girls will have a letter, once you have all 14 letters, please figure out what it says and email Jennifer at stampsandsmilesstore@yahoo.com. The letter you need from my post is the letter "H" Frances Letter
My card today uses the new “Land of Cuppy” set and also the cupcake from “Happy Birthday Cupcake” …. as soon as I saw this set I knew I had to make a stair step card. I just love all the fun images that are included in this set to create a wonderland for Cuppy to live in.

Here is a side view of my card so that you can see the stair step details a little better … it is pretty hard to take a photo of this so you get to see everything.

I mentioned earlier that you had a chance to win fun prizes along the way. I have one of Stamp & Smiles new stamps sets to give away to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post. The set you have a chance of winning is “Carl the Cupcake” .... it is one of my favs (but to be honest so are the rest hehe). Make sure you comment on this post by 10 AM EST Saturday morning so I can draw the lucky winner.

Thanks for visiting my blog, it is now time for you to leave and hop on over to the blog of Jenny Gropp.
