Clearly Besotted Blog Hop!


Hey there everybody!  I'm SO happy to have been asked to participate in a birthday celebration for Clearly Besotted Stamps!  I just love the style of their stamps, and they have some amazing sentiments.

If you are following along in the hop, hopefully you arrived from Jen Nelson's blog.  If not, please take the time to start from the beginning (Stephanie's blog)!

I used the amazing new Holiday Sentiments set- I adore the dots, and chose to tie that into the rest of the card with some dotty paper along the sides:


I stamped the "merry" in red ink, then stamped again right below without re-inking for a second-generation look.  And I just love those little holly leaves that come in the set!

There is a super prize up for grabs....a grand prize of a $75 Simon Says Stamp gift certificate and £100 Clearly Besotted gift certificate for one winner!! Told you it was good :)  The winner will be selected from all the comments left along the hop. 

In addition, I have a set that I am giving away over here as well!  One of my favorite Clearly Besotted sets is Many Thanks:



Don't forget to leave your comment here for a chance to win, then head on over to visit my friend Laura Bassen!
