Stampotique New Release Blog Hop

You should have arrived from Nellie van Leeuwen's blog for our blog hop.

 I am joined by the Stampotique Design Team to showcase the images released from Stampotique this month.  If you haven't had a chance to see what's new, you can do that over on the Stampotique website here.

As with any of the releases, there is a variety of stamps from our artists for any stampers, scrapbookers and journalers out there.  We always love to see what your favorites are so while you are hopping around, make sure to stop by and say "hi" on our blogs and come back here and tell us what some of your favorite images from this release were.

We'll be giving away a $30 gift certificate for stamps and a grab bag of stamps on two of the blogs-but you won't know which ones they are so stop by and visit them all.  We will pick the winners on our first challenge in September.

I've been the design team coordinator with Stampotique shortly after I begged and begged to be a part of the design team.  I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on the team, the great friends I've made, the way I've grown as a stamper, and mostly being a part of the Stampotique family.  This is my last blog hop as I turn the reigns over to my wonderful design team member in taking over for me, Claudine Criner.  Claudine will do a fabulous job and while I may not be as involved with Stampotique as I have been in previous years, I will always remain a faithful stalker.  Thank you to all of you out there who always took time to leave comments or drop me a note-I always appreciated getting them.

I especially want to say a HUGE thank you to our design teams through the years and all the support they have given me as their coordinator-there are so many extraordinary women out there on our team, and I'm so blessed to have been a part of this team and their lives.



Have fun hopping!

From here you will want to hop on over to Arwen McCullen's blog.



For my card, I'm wishing all of you love and lots of laughter!  I'll be taking a hiatus from stamping for a bit while my family takes the leap of putting out house up for sale and finding a new (and improved) house that fits our family's needs.  So, while I may not be posting my own creations-I'll still be checking all of yours out whenever I get the opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by!
