Friends of SNSS Blog Hop!


Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps 5th Birthday Blog Hop! I am so honored to have been invited to participate with lots of amazingly talented Friends of SNSS!

Here's what you need to know about today's hop:
  • There will be 4 random participants from whom one commenter will be chosen to receive a $15 store credit. 
  • To be included in the drawings, comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th.
  • Winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8 a.m. EST
Celebrating this birthday with Korin is particularly special to me, since one of the very first teams I had the privilege of being part of was the then barely one year old SNSS.  I have such special memories of those early months of stamping, and such wonderful friendships were formed as Korin and the rest of the team showed me the ropes.  This amazing hobby and the world of blogging gave us common ground in the beginning, but our relationships grew to be so much more than paper-crafting!  We shared our creative struggles and real life challenges too, praying for each other and offering encouragement as well as companionship.  Even though our journeys are no longer so tightly intertwined, I know where to run to find a serious prayer warrior when I need one!

I have a sweet friend Bethany in my Bible study...maybe she's one of the reasons I so adore Bethany Bunny!  I chose the Baking Bethany digital stamp for today's card...it's colored with Copics, blinged up with Stickles, a gingham ribbon with a button and bow, and a few pearls.  The layout is this week's Sweet Stop Sketch! I love having a sketch or other challenge as a starting point...Korin's Sweet Stop and SNSS Digi Challenge blogs provide a great resource for stampers!
