Christmas Blog Hop #2 …

Good morning bloggers, how are you all today?

Thanks for stopping by   …and you’ll be glad that you did because it’s time for another of our fabulous Design Team blog hops. For this one we’re celebrating the launch of the latest gorgeous Christmas stamps!

This is the second set of the 2013 Christmas collection and there are 20 new stamps  …they include some of your favourite characters and also a few more traditional designs too!

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Sunday August 25th (UK time)

***

Simply ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration along the way for using the new images

There is a fabulous prize up for grabs on the hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog

You have a couple of days to join in, we will let you know on Saturday evening which was the ‘lucky’ blog and a winner will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on that blog

The prize is a full set of the new Christmas stamps...

that’s 20 rubber stamps, one each of all the newest designs


Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;
