Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Blog Hop!



Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years! A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 37 stops, so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog!  You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can.  On Saturday, November 12th, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper and twine valued at $40!

If you have been following along already, you should have come from Lorie Souther's blog!  If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there.  You won't want to miss any stops along the way!  Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)

I created two cards for the blog hop today! For my first card I used the "Christmas Candle" digital stamp, and my sentiment is from the "Welcome Jesus" clear stamp set!


My second card is fun and whimsical and uses the "Snow Special" clear stamp set and my sentiment is from the "Winter Friends" stamp set.

Your next stop on the hop is Cathy McCauley's blog, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:
