Sneaky Peek blog hop…

 

 

 

 

bloghop880

Good morning bloggers!

We’re celebrating our first launch of 2014 this weekend so it’s time for another of our DT blog hops to show you all the new stamps

There are 10 adorable new images in the set featuring the hugely popular James the Bear and some more of our newest cute characters; Jack, Patch and Puss

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday (UK time) on Monday 13th January and you’ll also be able to get them in the shop this Saturday. We’re open 10 ‘til 4 if you are able to come along and see us

*

You know what to do by now, just ‘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 for using these cute new images

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so make sure that you visit and comment on every blog

I will let you know on Monday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new 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;

James Daisy Bag - Kim

 

The stamp is James Daisy and she’s also used Beach Bliss papers and one of the Everyday Grungy Messages

What a lovely idea!
