Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit Blog Hop! ...with TWO GIVEAWAYS!



Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp September 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop! You should be arriving from the fabulous Debby Hughes blog.

Fall is slowly starting to fill the air and the kids are getting ready to head back to school. What better way to welcome the changing seasons, than a blog hop featuring the September Simon Says Stamp Card Kit: Journey of Life. With it's fun chalkboard papers from My Mind's Eye, new exclusive Simon Says Stamp banner stencil and stamp set and fun travel themed embellishments, it's sure to get you in a creative mood!


Did you know that you can subscribe to Simon Says Stamp’s monthly card kits for just $19.95 plus S&H every month!?  The kits are an incredible value! You'll want to be quick if you aren't a subscriber because the card kits have been selling out!

Here's the card I made for today's hop:




I love how perfectly the little nested circles stamp fit inside the white dots of the patterned paper. I thought the happy colors from the inks and watercolor pencils worked well with the sentiment and contrasted the black/white/grey well. I added a little Wink of Stella clear glitter marker to the word 'happy' to really make it pop. It also helped blend the pencil strokes. 


GIVEAWAYS!!!

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a goody bag at every stop on the hop! That's ten chances to win!


Just leave a comment on each of the blog posts as you hop along to be entered in the random drawings. The giveaways will stay open until Thursday August 22/13 at 6:00pm EST and the winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Friday August 23/13.

Heidi has also provided me with one Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit to give away to one commenter on my blog! Yay! Just leave a comment on this post and I'll announce a winner this Saturday.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog on the hop! The next stop is the amazing Jess Larsen.

Happy Hopping!!
Sarah
