The Stampman Challenge and Blog Hop!!!!!

Wow you're in for a treat this week, Mr and Mrs Stampman are hosting THE most amazing challenge and Blog Hop where there is a prize to win on EVERY blog that you hop to along with a prize for the fortnightly challenge we normally run.  (Is it Christmas already?)

To qualify for a prize on the Blog Hop we'd like you to put the challenge blinkie on your sidebar, comment on all the blogs in the Hop, collect the letters from the altered challenge DT samples as you go along and work out the anagram of the letters you collect.

So if you want to have a go at the blog hop you need to start 

and if you've just come from the challenge blog here's your letter


I painted the letter with Adirondak Paint Dabbers, then stamped Aspects of Design 62 Artistic Elements with Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad - Rich Cocoa onto tissue paper which I then adhered to the dry paint with watered down pva glue. The trim was just stamped and embossed onto card and pinned in place.

If you fancy having a go at The Stampman Challenge too this week we'd like to see you alter something and post it on the Challenge Blog for us to see! Both the Challenge and the Blog Hop will end on the 9th October with a wonderful £30 gift voucher for the winner of the Challenge.

Now before you hop off to the next blog in the hop here's what you've a chance to win from my blog


The Classical Instruments unmounted Stamp Set

Fantastic!

So leave a link with the linky thing to your post about The Stampman's Blog Hop, leave a comment at every blog in the hop, work out the anagram with the letters you collect and follow the instructions on the last blog in the hop and wow are you in for some fun!

The next blog in the hop is our lovely Vix's blog which you'll find HERE
Good luck
