GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME BLOG HOP!


Hello everyone! 
Welcome to the Good Old Summertime Blog Hop! 
We are so excited that you joined us for this very small hop... there are only 6 stops total! All the projects for this hop are SUMMER related, and you're going to love what the girls have come up with...they are all so super creative!

We have BLOG CANDY!!!!

Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog, because we are all featuring Cardz TV Stamps in our projects, and we are ALL giving away a set of Cardz TV Stamps! I'll use random.org to choose a comment to win a set of Cardz TV Stamps, AND a cute set of Quickutz dies called "Life" (provided by Janis! USA addresses only). Remember to FOLLOW and COMMENT on each blog, and be sure to leave a way to contact you in case you win!

In addition to the Cardz TV Stamps, some of the blogs are offering additional BLOG CANDY. Read each blog post to learn how to win from their blog. Blog candy winners will be announced on Monday, July 13th.

For my Summertime Project I used my Cardz TV stamp set "Summer Fun", Cricut Elegant Edges, and a darlin' print & cut image from Stinkin' Cute Paper Piecings. Thanks for watching!



Here's the blog hop lineup...Have fun!


Thanks for hoppin' with us!

Hugs & Blessings,
