Sparkle Creations Grand Opening Hop!!!

Welcome to the Grand Opening blog hop for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps! A big congratulations to Sparkle and her hubby, Brent, on their grand opening!! I'm so honored to be a part of it.. To start at the beginning of the blog hop, please start at the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog.

Today is an exciting day as we're releasing 8 new darling stamps! And we're giving away a ton of prizes! One lucky person will win the grand prize of all 8 images. There are also 5 single stamp prizes hidden, so make sure you comment on everyone's blogs! You will have until midnight Eastern time to comment and the winners will be announced on the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog.

 
I used Surfing Oliver for my card today.. I stamped and colored him with Copic markers. For fun, I paper-pieced his surfboard. Both patterned papers are from the Jen and Dean collection by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe Designs). This is such a fun collection, and I think it's perfect for Oliver. I spelled out Dude onto a small pennant banner with my sentiment from Verve's Dude.
