Clear Dollar Stamps BLOG HOP!!!!


Hello and welcome to Clear Dollar Stamps' January Blog Hop. As you can see from the logo above, we will be having a hop monthly, showcasing some old and some new stamps that we pick from our favorite sets.
We have a team brimming with super talented ladies who just LOVE our Clear Dollar Stamps, so I hope you will join us the 3rd Sunday of every month to see what we have prepared for you.

If you came from Barb's beautiful blog, you're in the right place. 
If you just happened on to my blog, head on over and visit Lori @ Clearly iStamp to start at the beginning. You will want to comment on all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning a prize!

This month's hop theme is "New Beginnings". We can interpret it in any way we choose so I went with a new day. Isn't it great that though we may make mistakes, or have problems, that God gives us new days to start over fresh?  :)

I used the "Rooster Sunrise" set that I illustrated for CDS.


The DP is "Butterfield" by Memory Box.

If you have yet to see my post from yesterday, I hope you will scroll down and take a look. I have several cards that are done with my latest digi illustrations and a chance to win the digis just by commenting on that post!

Your next stop on the hop is sweet Cassie's blog. I am sure you are going to love what she has to show you!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Please remember to comment for a chance at winning the prize from Clear Dollar Stamps.
