Simon Says Stamp Stephanie Leykauf's Birthday Blog Hop

*CLOSED: WINNER - JANET ZEPPA OF JANET'S JOY*

I am thrilled to be a part of this special Blog hop in honour of Staphanie Leykauf's birthday.  I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Stephanie (Marketing Director at Simon Says Stamp) in London recently and let me tell you, she is so much fun!

You should have arrived here from the wonderful Mandy Stacey, but just in case you're a little lost, the full hop details can be found on the Simon Says Stamp blog.

I used some fabulous new products from Simon Says Stamp to make a couple of birthday cards today...


Supplies: Stamps - Simon Says Stamp 'Celebrate' / Dies - Simon Says Stamp 'Celebration Time'

xxx Happy Birthday Stephanie xxx

Now it wouldn't be a hop without prizes would it?  There is an opportunity at every stop to win yourself a fabulous Simon Says Stamp grab bag so please be sure to leave some love (or maybe just a hello if you prefer lol)...
Next stop is the super Heather Gilfoy Bond, tell her I said hi won't you? ;)
