Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's time to spread some joy.  I am taking part in the #SPREDJOYNOTGERMS blog hop as part of the STAMPlorations Design Team. If you've already been hopping along, you will have come from the lovely Dina L Kowal's Blog. Welcome everyone!


First up my little one-layer card ... and I'm hoping it's going to make you smile ...


Aren't these little monsters adorable? The jumping one looks, as if it wants to give you a hug ... maybe it is sending you a big virtual one right now ...

I used Little Monsters with a sentiment from Chikoo Goes Bananas and the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations Stencil for the background, all available from the STAMPlorations Shop.

Talking about STAMPlorations ... Shery, STAMPlorations owner, really loves spreading joy, not only is she giving away a $25 gift code on the STAMPlorations Blog, she is also giving away a $10 gift code on each of her participating designer's blogs (including mine 😁).
A full list of all other sponsors (there are 31 in total) and prizes can be found at the end of my post.

Prizes will be randomly drawn from all the blogs and all the comments which means the more comments you leave the greater your chance of winning a prize. Should you get lost along the way you can pop over to Catherine Pooler's blog or The Hedgehog Hollow's blog to find the full list with links of all the participants.

Commenting closes Friday 24th April with the winners being announced on Monday 27th April on Catherine Pooler's Blog and Alexandra Stapleton-Smith's/The Hedgehog Hollow's Blog.


Here is one last look at my little card ...


It is time to hop on to the the next stop which is the lovely Jill Lipscomb of Jill Cameron Creations.

Wishing you lots of fun!
hugs
