Paper Smooches October Blog Hop!

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches November release with you!  FOUR new stamps and EIGHT new dies will be available to purchase tonight (October 30th at 9:00pm pacific time...or midnight eastern time) Once our release goes live, you will find our new products HERE.  
To add extra fun to our blog hop...we are offering up a prize!   The prize - a $25 gift code to choose what you like at the Paper Smooches online store!

Here are the details:
  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog to win the $25. prize.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed below or the PS blog for your chance to win!  (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your changes) 
  • Deadline: You have until midnight MT on Sunday, November 2nd to leave a comment. 
  • Please check the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, November 3rd to see if you are one of the FOUR lucky winners.  

Here's the list of the entire hopping gang:)

Now to my card:)  I'm playing around with the new die set called Gift Tags 2.  This set includes 3 different tags including this oversized, stitched one below.  Tags are always a fun way to frame and image, especially one as cute as this walrus:)  I love that his dour expression does not match his festive hat, lol!  The hat is from the new Noggin Toppers set by the way.  To add one final touch of color, I added some twine to match his hat.  Fun stuff!

Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, the always wonderful Jocelyn Olson!  I love her style and she's a sweetheart to boot.  Get on over there:)

Mahalo,
