Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop & BlogCandy!

This BlogHop (my first one!) is from a loyal group of Sweet Pea stamp fans who want to let Lynette know that we appreciate all her hard work bringing us the wonderful stamps in both rubber and digi format over the years. We're so so sad the shoppe is closing down today.. Best wishes & Thanks so very much for all the wonderful images we have collected from you! ♥ 

psst: if you hurry u might enter my other blogcandy also! It ends tonight!

It was early 2010 when I first discovered this wonderful shoppe with amazing artists (then only in high quality rubber, in the later years also in digital stamps), and I have been a HUGE fan ever since.. or hoarder I may as well say .. as I tend to buy all I see that I 'need' ..and they have become so many that I have lots not used once yet! Anyone else? *lol*
I also tend to buy the very same stamps sometimes.. so I get some duplicates! 

This lovely rubberstamp 'Cherished Christmas' by Ching Chou Kuik (including ez-mount!) is one I will give away to a lucky winner who comments on this post! Worldwide entries welcome! Enter before 23:55/11:55PM (norwegian time) on November 30th., I will draw a winner December 1st. :) 

EDIT: In addition to my rubberstamp prize, Sweet Pea Stamps have asked us to pick one more lucky winner out of all those who commented on the hop, from each bloghop stop! ~ and I have put all those eligible in my imaginary hat and randomly chose: aussie aNNie! You will get to choose one digistamp  from some lovely winter themed images by Conie Fong! How fun is that :)
There are more surprise giveaways along the way, so make sure you stop by all our blogs and leave a comment on all the wonderful Sweet Pea Stamp creations!
