IBFS Blog Hop!

I have missed stamping, but I hope you'll all understand that I was away from stamping and blogging while we finished getting ready for my daughter Nichole's wedding this past Tuesday. What a wonderful celebration it was! I'll blog about it later and promise to share pictures, but I want to do it justice and I'm still getting my pictures and memories together. Now on to the blog hop for Della at I Break For Stamps!



Isn't Moonlight Mermaid just stunning? I just loved working her up! She's my stamp to present to you for Della's Blog Hop! This blog hop is a shout-out & thank-you to Della of "I Brake For Stamps" who is a huge behind the scenes helper for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design--she makes all the stamps! All the DT's blogs feature a different project featuring a stamp from Della's store, so make sure and hop all the way through the end. If you've come to me from anyone except Teri's site, take a look at the list below and start with Suzanne! I would hate for you to miss out on the opportunity to win a great prize and to see the great variety of stamps that Della offers!For one lucky HOPPER there will be a prize, but you have to leave a comment on every blog in order for a chance to win. The lucky winner will be picked randomly from comments left on one of the DT's blog's--but it's a MYSTERY which blog it will be! The prize up for grabs is a brand new Ranger Heat Gun--it heats quickly & does NOT blow your embossing powder around--it's FANTASTIC! After you've left a comment here for me, make sure you stop by the outrageously talented Lorelie's blog for her stunning creation! Now go get hoppin'!!

For the hopper's that make it thru there is a prize ---one commenter from someone's blog will win a brand new Ranger Heat Gun! But the blog that I pick a comment from will be a "Mystery" so they need to make sure & leave a comment on each blog in order for a chance to win!!

Here's a close up of her showing the stickles and Shimmerz I used on her. The background is done with my favorite cuttlebug folders and I added a couple of charms and some gold pearls in the corners. Oh, my, she's just gorgeous!



Della is having a special code that is good ONLY at her store : coupon code is "BLOGHOP" for 15% off purchases there at IBFS (I Brake For Stamps).

Also remember that this is a mystery prize blog hop--one lucky commenter who comments on one of your blog's will win a new Ranger Heat Gun & 4 IBFS (donated by Susana!) stamps! But you have to comment on every blog including the store blog with the question to be entered to win!!

So get hopping!

Ooh Susan your mermaid is stunning. I love all the shimmer and glitter and your colouration of her is fantastic. Your gold cord and charms are gorgeous and those little gold beads are the perfect finishing touch.
