Fun in the Sun Blog Hop

Yippee!!! Today is the day for the Fun in the Sun Blog Hop and Release!! We have 9 fun designs from our fantastic designer Cris de Lara. Cris has done a fabulous job bringing our kids to life in these cute designs!

You should have arrived here from the wonderful Michele's blog but if not why not go to the start of the hop which is over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog.

Make sure to leave comments during the Hop because there will be prizes!! Four blogs will be hosting candy...but you won't know which one...so leave a comment on all of them!!

Four lucky winners will get their choice of two (2) stamps from this release!!!

At 12pm GMT/7am EST, the stamps will go live!

All of the images for this release are IN STOCK and ready to be shipped.

The cute image used on my card today is called Joy Ride and features my daughter Zoe with our kitty Bella. Zoe only learnt to ride her bike at Christmas and the above photo is a rare one with her hair loose! When I first saw this design I just smiled so much at the likeness Cris had captured in Zoe's character.

Joy Ride has been coloured with Copic Markers with a little Prisma pencil and sansodor to blend. The gorgeous papers are Fancy Pants Roadshow. Lots of layering of these gorgeous papers on Kraft cardstock.

The blog hop will remain open all weekend and will close on Monday 12pm GMT/7amEST.
Don't forget there is also still time to help us Spread the word and be entered into the drawing to win the full release - 9 stamps. Just scroll down to my earlier post.

You next stop is the very talented Jeanette!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy hopping!

Hugs,
