Sweet N Sassy stamps blog hop

Hi there! Can you believe it is the first of September??? The summer has really flown by and school starts next week already. Wow, how time flies!

Anyway, Sweet N Sassy stamps is releasing 10 new stamp sets today. They are all fabulous and to celebrate we are having a blog hop featuring them. The set I am featuring today is called Christmas itty bitties. This set is going to be awesome for making CAS cards and is a must-have in my opinion. The set features 6 images and they each measure about 1 1/8 inches or so.

As a bonus today, I have a challenge for you. And what is a challenge without a prize?? The winner of my challenge will receive the Christmas Itty Bitties stamp set- how cool is that?! My challenge for you is a sketch challenge and you will have until Saturday Sept. 4th to play along. Please post a link to your entry by commenting under this post. You do not need to use Sweet N Sassy stamps to be entered into the drawing but I would love to see them if you have them. The winner will be chosen by random.org and will be posted here on my blog on Monday Sept 6. Below is the sketch and my sample.





The large image square can be used for one big image or for several smaller ones which is what I have done. Have fun with it!

Supplies:
stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Christmas itty bitties, Christmas Wonder (sentiment)
accessories- gingham ribbon, apron lace border punch, stickles, copics, square nesties


Now, if this was your first stop on the hop then you will want to go back and start at the Sweet N Sassy stamps blog so you don't miss any of the awesome projects that the DT has for you. There may just be a couple of other challenges/prizes offered for you as well. Now if you have already been hopping then your next stop is the incredibly talented and owner extraordinaire Korin. I also have a list of the blog hop participants below in case you missed someone along the way.
