Paper Crafts magazine presents: Stamp It! 3 Ways Blog Hop

Welcome to another fabulous Paper Crafts magazine blog hop!!!! We are celebrating the release of the special issue, Stamp It! 3 Ways.

In this magazine, groups of designers were given a particular stamp set, and each created different projects to show the versatility of the stamps.  It was a lot of fun to participate in this creative challenge, and it was even MORE fun to find out that one of my cards (the chalkboard) would be on the COVER! Two covers within a month.  It's insanity I tell you!!! (Thrilling insanity! ;) 
I have two other cards within the magazine, and this is a card I created using one of the stamp sets I was assigned to. (you can see it below)
 
Please hop around and visit all of these fabulous chicks, and check out their great inspiration, using stamps from this issue.  We each have a copy of the magazine to give away, so be sure to leave a comment as you travel around! (Comments must be posted by Sunday January 29th, at midnight MST)

Thank you SO much for stopping by.  Hopping with Paper Crafts is such a privilege for me, and I totally enjoy (too much) reading each of your comments! I'll be trying to get around to YOUR blogs as well this week, to say HELLO!
