At each blog you will need to leave a comment and on the last blog you must leave a direct link to the project you have made for this challenge. The Blog hop will start at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on September 8th, 2010 at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog and will finish on September 15th, 2010 at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. During the hop you will visit all of the Design Team member’s blogs and each blog will tell you where to go next for the following clue! If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp and Show … just remember you need to keep the clues in the correct order. Once you have made your project and linked it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog you need to comment your link number together with the correct code in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog under the comments section of that week in order to be entered into the draw.
Added bonus! You will have a chance to win goodies from each HOP! Each DT member will be giving away an ingredient to make their creation, so don’t forget to comment throughout your hop!

The winner will be randomly drawn from all the correct answers for the Grand Prize next Wednesday. Remember you must have entered the Challenge and completed the blog hop to be eligible to win this $100 SHOPPING SPREE- courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Store!!

Good Luck Everyone!



I've used one of the images from the new unmounted House Mouse stamps sets that can be bought at the Simon Says Stamp Store HERE  and coloured it with Copics and the edges are glittered with with Star Dust stickles.
The papers are Basic Grey and from the Two Scoops pad apart from the blue snowflake one which I found in my bit box. The snowflakes are cut with Spellbinders Create a flake and a Cuttlebug snowflake die. The ribbon and pearls are both from my stash.

If you've hopped her from Marcea 
you're on the right path



my letter is




and now you need to hop along to Christine




Now for my candy - the wonderful Heidi at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a fabulous Basic Grey Cappella pad (defineitely my favourite of all time) which you can see HERE -  call  back here and leave me a direct link to your card with the blue frog. You have until Wednesday 15th September to link your creation ( 4pm CET)
