Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Spring 2013 Blog Hop + Giveaways!

Today I am excited to be part of this blog hop featuring all of these new early Spring Simon Says Stamp products! There are so many unique and fun options, and I was anxious to start creating with them. With 14 designers and all of these products, I can’t wait to see what everyone shares on today’s hop.


I'm gearing up for all the birthdays that hit all at once... This one is for my son Scooter... he's a Social Media Maniac! The Kelly Purkey Happiness Is stamps along with the Simon Says Stamps numbers die made this once quick and easy to make.


I jumbled the die cut numbers and colored the 24 to depict Scooters age.  FUN!!

 




This next card is a great one to make in batches and keep on hand.  
You can never say enough Thank You's!


I'm in LOVE with Wet Cement and Soft Cantaloupe ink from Hero Arts!!!




And now to the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner from my blog will receive a Simon Says Stamp Goody bag. We will randomly draw a winner at 9:00 AM EST on Wednesday, 4/3/13 so be sure to leave your comment by then. (And be sure to comment on each designer’s blog for 14 chances to win!) Thanks for visiting!

The next stop in the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Spring 2013 Blog Hop is the amazing (and my BFF :o) Jennifer McGuire!!! If you encounter a broken link or would like to go to the start of the blog hop go to the Simon Says Stamp blog.
