FTHS Birthdays Blog Hop


Hi everyone! Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We are celebrating birthdays today!

If you've arrived here from Imke's blog, Crafting Creations by Imke, then you are in the right place but if you've just happened along, you'll want to head on over to the From the Heart Stamps blog so you can start at the beginning!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the image that the designer used. And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

We are also having a little word search today. As you stop on each blog collect the special letter they have for you. Put the letters together for a message. Everyone who figures out the message can use it as a code to receive 50% off of one image in the birthday section of the FTHS shop. The code will be good until Monday November 4th at 6 am, EST. My letter for you is “A”.

For today's blog hop I'm highlighting the Mice Surprise digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.


Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday November 4th at 6am, EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday November 6th.

On to the next gorgeous creation, your next stop on our blog hop is with Kathy... prepare to be amazed! So, without further ado... hop on over to her blog, Will Stamp For Wine, and enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
