The Stamp Man Blog Hop Candy and Award Event

Today The Stamp Man is celebrating with a Blog Hop Candy and Award Event, running from 27 December until 3 January 2010, 1st off all if you have come from Tracy you are on the right track, if not please go back to The Stamp Man, and follow from there, you are picking up letters for a word or a phrase......My letter is "O" and you wll find the next letter at Kay's blog.......You must visit every blog to collect the letters and once you have the word or phrase, you are to e-mail it to Jill at thestampman@btconnect.com with your answer, please Don't leave your answers on any off the blogs



For more information about the New Award from The Stamp Man, pop over and check out how to go about getting this award.......

There are prizes at each station, and here there are 400 Assorted Brads up for grabs, HERE  I love Brads, especially now that I have my crop-o-dile, and no longer have to do the Ping thing...LOL.I will also be picking a name for some Surprise Candy too.....so come on start hopping girls......



There is so much exciting things going on at The Stamp Man today and you do not want to miss this opportunity for a bit fun, with your blogging buddies and a wee release from the kitchen...LOL......we were to choose a project that we were particulary proud off this year, and I have to say that my style has changed so much since joining blogland, I have learned so much and know that I have so much more to learn and can't wait until 2010 and the projects that you girls come up with for inspiration......I have choosen the 1st Calander I made, which I loved, my grand-daughter Sinead laid claim to it many months ago...LOL.  I used the Patchwork Pals kit, that I really love and by coincidence QVC have a TSV today off Patchwork Pals, which I hope they have on again later in the year, for obvious reasons.....as I wanted to collect them all, how could they have a craft day 2 days after Xmas.....BOOOHOO.......LOL.

Have a fab day at the bloghop girls and I am so looking forward to getting back to my shed and creating some new projects for the New Year.....Love to you all.....Avril xxxxxx
