It's a Blog Hop!!!

Happy Friday my friends!!
I'm excited, today is my first InStyle Stamps blog hop!! I'm so excited!! Here are the official details:
You can begin chatting on the InStyle Stamps forum at 11:30am EST, and will stay open until 11pm EST. Link for the forum:
1. The blog hop will run from 12pm EST to 11pm EST on the ISS forum (see link above). There will be contests with prizes throughout the day on the blog hop thread on the forum.

2. Be sure to visit all of the DT members, see links below and leave them some love!!
3. Be sure to go to the ISS blog to vote for your favorite project!! PICK ME!! The designer of the project with the most votes will win a prize!! Come on guys, I ain't to proud to beg!!! I need your votes!!

4. After you vote, you will need to leave a comment on the ISS blog post with the poll on it in order to be entered to win the grand prize. The polling system we use doesn't keep track of who is voting, so if you don't post a comment, you won't be in the drawing.

5. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 25th, and the winners will be announced on Sunday, April 26th.

For my project, i decided not to make a container but I kept looking at this adorable bag and decided that it would be perfect for Sheree!! Everybody needs a little pampering now and then!! I like to make up little gifts like this and place them in our guest bathroom when we have company coming. I think it just makes people feel welcome and gives them some goodies too!!!

I colored Sheree with my copics and added stickles to her bubbles and the little flowers that I put on her bathtub. I attached her to the front of my bag with glue dots. I put some little giftie toiletries in the bag and voila, a cute little gift container!!! It's fun to alter things that you already have around the house (recycling is good). I hope you like my project. If you do, I NEED YOUR VOTE!!! I would love to win the prize for this month and you will be rewarded by getting a chance to win a prize yourself, just for voting!! (Be sure to follow the guidelines above to make sure your name goes into the drawing.)

Don't forget that InStyle is having a huge sale until April 30th!! Be sure to use the code: ISSA20009 and put Cathy in the comment box so I can get you that 20% off your entire order (excludes Copics). We have released some really great stamps so go check 'em out!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will visit the blog hop and check out everyone's amazing work. How about picking up some of these cute images too. We have digis and rubbah so much to choose from!! Have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow with a Sneak Peek for InStyle Stamps!!
