The Ton: Anniversary Release Blog Hop






2016 is starting off with a bang for me...thrilled to be asked to join the special Anniversary Release Blog Hop over at The Ton .  You should have arrived here from The Ton's blog.  If not, that is where you'll want to start so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

There will be four $10 gift certificates and one $25 gift certificate as blog hop prizes. Winners will be chosen randomly from the comments left on all the blogs. Deadline for comments: Wednesday, January 20th by 11:59 pm eastern.   edited to add:  Winners announced HERE.

I have a couple cards to share with you so let's get started!!!!

First up is a sentiment from the new, Like a Boss stamp set: 


Darin and the kids are always telling me I have glitter on my face.  They say it like it is a bad thing...non-crafters don't get it.  It's a good thing (wink).

Next up is a combo of Honey Bears + Friend Defined.


Those Honey Bears are just the cutest...check out their expressions...they look like they've been totally caught doing something, don't they?  Their accessories are the perfect pops of color.  The sentiment.....cracks me up.....big time.  Gotta love the Friend Defined set!

Here's a bonus card that I managed to whip up that includes Honey Bears and a sentiment from the previously released Hug in a Mug.


I tell you, those Honey Bears are just over the top CUTE.  I will be sure to include a Starbucks card with this one.  It'll make for a nice January surprise for someone.

That's it for me, next up is the awesome Vera Yates!
