TSOL and Clearsnap Hop!


Please join The Stamps of Life and Clearsnap for a blog hop featuring The Stamps of Life stamps and Clearsnap inks and other fun products. Make sure to comment on all the stops along the hop because prizes will be randomly chosen among the comments.

The Stamps of Life will be giving away 3 prizes – one stamp set (of the winner’s choice) per winner.

Clearsnap will be giving away an assortment of Stephanie Barnard Colorbox Premium Dye inks.


I am hoping that my card will bring you happy-go-lucky thoughts of a breezy day in the sunshine!   Yesterday was exactly that kind of day!  I combined several TSOL sets and sizzix dies with four fabulous Clearsnap inks for this all-occasion design.  I wish you could see the glittery sparkle of the Twinkle watermark ink...the camera just doesn't do it justice!

We got a flyer in our mail advertising that the musical "Mary Poppins" will be coming to Jacksonville in January, so maybe that is what inspired this choice of stamps!  It was one of our favorite movies when Matthew was young, so we would love to see it!  I'll probably be singing "Let's Go Fly a Kite" all day long now!  Maybe you will be too!  :)
