Simon Says....Happy Hoppers Blog Hop & RECIPE CHALLENGE!!!!

WHAT A GREAT week this is going to be!!! Have we got surprises for YOU!!!!!!
First of all, this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is to use a "recipe"...no, I'm not asking you to BAKE!!!! LOL I don't bake at all, but THIS kind of recipe, I can handle!!!
On your card, you are to use 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 DIFFERENT types of embellishments.

Here is my card:

I used 2 papers from a K&C company stack of paper I've had FOREVER! The card base is Vintage Violet, a retired SU In Color which I love and have hoarded for about 4 years!!!! LOL The 3 different embellies are flowers, rhinestones and a button. And my image is a House Mouse image I got from Simon Says Stamp. I kinda cheated but the sentiment isn't really considered an "image" ... is it??? The sentiment is from Inkadinkado & I got that from Simon Says Stamp too!

Secondly, to celebrate the newest members of Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, the Design Team members are participating in a blog hop, to inspire you and introduce our newest team members!!! The HAPPY HOPPER BLOG HOP!!!!! Wooo hoooooooooooooooo

If you didn't start the blog hop at the beginning, then you want to head back to Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog so you do not miss anything.

At each blog, you need to leave a comment – this will get you a chance to win your choice of 1 Cuttlebug embossing folder at EACH blog. For example, by leaving me a comment here, you are entered to win a Cuttlebug embossing folder of YOUR choice!!!! Do this on EVERY DTs blogs - you can win more than once!!!

Also, at each blog, there will be a MYSTERY LETTER – collect all of the letters, unscramble them, and post your answer at the end (in the comment section; don't worry, comments will be hidden!!!). See below for MINE!!!!


You MUST enter the challenge this week to win!!!!!! Winner of the Grand Prize will be announced next Wed.


Be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end, for your chances to win. When you get to the Simon Says Stamp Blog, leave a comment that you hopped to all blogs, enter the mystery phrase, tell us that you entered the challenge (we will check!!!) . You must also ENTER THE CHALLENGE with Mr.Linky!!!!

The FABBY GRAND PRIZE is a SIZZIX BIG SHOT courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Superstore. (if you already have a Big Shot, you can choose a $50 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp instead!!! OR you could give it to me!!!! LOL)


My mystery letter is H!


Be sure to write them all down, unscramble them to find out the mystery phrase for a chance to win that GREAT tool!!!! (I would LOVE to win that baby!!!)

I really hope you will join us this week for our challenge! Now, you need to head to DENA'S blog, to see what fabulous inspirations she has to share with you!! Don't forget to collect her letter, and leave her some love so you can enter to win another Cuttlebug folder!!!!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!! THANKS for stopping by!!!
Have fun and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Chris
