Happy Sunday Everyone!!

Welcome to the Nutcrafter's very first Blog Hop!! We are celebrating the release of the new line of CutiePie stamps! They are so adorable. We've been doing sneak peeks all week and the DT and I have some wonderful things to show you today. Each stamp comes with an accessory stamp, the image and a sentiment. The sets will be available for sale in the Nutcrafter's store on Monday, Feb. 22 (tomorrow).

We have lots of prizes up for grabs during the hop. A winner from each DT member's blog will be chosen at random to win the stamp shown, and one winner WILL WIN THE ENTIRE COLLECTION!! This winner will be chosen from the Nutcrafter's blog but to qualify, you must leave a comment at each stop on the hop. So you better get hoppin'!! We will also be revealing 2 other stamps that haven't been seen yet!! How exciting!!

I am the first stop on the hop and I have used Shopping Rae for my project. Isn't she the cutest!!

I colored by image with my copics. I used K & Co. paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder for my paisleys. The pink paper is by the Paper Company and feels like a purse! Very cool! I used ink to bring out my embossing and around the edge of my sentiment. I used the Friday Sketcher's Week 90 sketch to create my card.

This is the lineup for the hop and the links:

I've entered my card into the following challenges:

Practical Scrappers - flowers
upcake Craft Challenge - keep it simple
Pile it On - flowers
Good luck and I hope you enjoy the blog hop and our new release of stamps. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and be sure to tell everyone to come by and hop with us!! Have a wonderful day and don't forget to leave a comment so you'll be in the running for the stamp that I'll be giving away! Be sure to run to Nutcrafter's tomorrow to pick up your favorite stamps! Now hop over to see Karen at
