Clearly Besotted 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

2nd Anniversary Banner

Hi there – you’ve arrived on a rather special day…we’re celebrating the 2nd anniversary of Clearly Besotted Stamps with an AWESOME blog hop!  You should have arrived here from the most fabulous Laura Bassen but if you’re somehow lost – go back to the beginning HERE!

I’ve used the new Joy To The World stamp set (available tonight from the store) and made a festive shaker card.  I embossed the trees in Gold Tinsel by Ranger and cut them using the co-ordinating dies – this embossing powder is SUPER sparkly in real life!!

Joy to the world

Now as you all know by now – Stephanie is one generous lady and this blog hop is no exception.  Firstly, she is offering a grand prize of a £100 gift e-gift card for one lucky blog hop participant randomly drawn from all the comments throughout the hop.  And as if that wasn’t enough, every blog on the hop has a £20 gift card to give away , the winner to be randomly picked from the comments!!  Cool huh?!

Now you need to hop on over to the wonderfully talented Julie Ebersol who has a gorgeous card to share with you.

Here’s the full line up in case you get lost!!

Caryn Davies (that’s me!)


Good luck and thanks for stopping by xxx
