The Stamp Man Blog Hop, Candy, and Award Event

The Stampman Blog Hop, Candy and Award Event is now open! To join the fun, you need to visit each participating blog in turn, beginning with Jill's at The Stamp Man. You should have come to mine from Christine's (Ladylace's Crafting Space), and the next one to visit is

Pat's (Pats Card Making Passion).

There are lots of fantastic prizes to be won. If you haven't reached mine from Christine's, I'd suggest you go back to Jill's (The Stamp Man Blog) to start from the beginning. Each blog you visit will give you a code letter and tell you about about one of the prizes. You'll need to collect all the letters and at the end email your final answer to Jill. The last port of call will take you back to The Stamp Man blog which will tell you how to do that.

The code letter for my blog is  U

The prize is 400 ASSORTED ROUND BRADS.

To be eligible for a prize you will need to leave a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop.


Now about the Awards! These are to showcase everyone's best project from 2009! This is what it will look like! All the details are on The Stamp Man Blog, so hop over there to find out how to take part.


I think my own favourite project was the one I did back in June, where I made two cards using exactly the same design but with completely different colouring  and style. One was sweet and simple, the other grungy! It was really interesting to compare the effects. Most people seemed to prefer the grungy version. Here are the cards. To see how I made them, check out the post here.







Anyway, I'll let you go off and get started. The Event will end at midnight GMT on Sunday 3rd January. Don't forget to post your link on The Stamp Man Blog to your best project, and hop around all the blogs! I hope you have lots of fun on the way!

Sarah Anderson said...

What a great idea. I love the grunge too, but I have to say the pink one is very, very sweet and is the one that I'd choose to send to someone for their birthday!

Fancy meeting you here! You kept that one quiet! Lovely cards. Hope you had a great time at Sarah's and you are doing lots of colouring, wink, wink!

Dotty Jo said...

Hi Lynne, couldn't pick between those two cards as they are both gorgeous! Love the CAS look of the first one with those pretty colours but also love card two with all that shimmer! Thanks for sharing your creativity and making this hop so much fun! Jo x

Fliss said...

Lovely contrast in cards Lynne but me being me, I too prefer the grunge style one. They're both really lovely but the slightly shabby look does have the edge.
Great to see both styles on here and thanks for showing us.

Lynne, what lovely cards. I love using flowers on cards.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas with family and friends. Thank you for the chance of winning this blog candy. I would love to be in with a chance of winning as I would put it to good use for my cards that I make to sell to raise funds for different charities. Here’s wishing you and yours a Happy New Year.

Best wishes,
