Over on Gingersnaps there are reasons to stamp in January and lots of ideas to get you started. I have contributed with these. The first is Appreciate a Dragon Day and the second names itself with Inspire your heart with art. You can see I have fallen in love with my new Maroon Archival Ink pad. I just can't stop using it. I was very pleased how the heart stamps stamped, particularly the lower one, as the paper is textured and the stamp has very fine detail on it. These two wonderful hearts are by Elusive Images from Graphicus.

Welcome to the first-ever Gingersnap Creations Blog Hop and Hop Stop #8!
If you’ve already been hopping then hopefully you have just come from Joanne at Made By Joanne. If you are starting here, welcome! It's a loop so you can start anywhere along the way!
At each stop, you need to collect a word! There are 10 stops in all starting and ending with the Gingersnap Creations blog where you can get all the specific information and get a peak at the Christmas 2009 plate from Hearts in Touch.
When you get all your words, 9 in all, unscramble them to form an art quote. Once you have your guess at the quote, email it and your name to email@example.com by December 13, 2009. We will be picking one lucky winner at random from the correct entries to win the Hearts in Touch Christmas 2009 plate!
My word is "This".
Your next stop on the hop is Lynn at Trash to Treasure Art. Good luck!
The sponsors this month over on gingersnaps is a stamp company called "Hearts in Touch". They very kindly gave us a Christmas stamp plate to use. This is one of the images off the plate. I love this one as it instantly reminded me of the magical Snow Globes we had as children that you would shake to see the snow falling. So I have used this stamp to create a shaker card. I hope you can see the glittery snow inside that does float around when shaken. As I have mentioned before I just love this christmas greeting also on the stamp sheet. Why not have a blog hop and see what other people have done with the stamps on the sheet and have fun. You never know you may end up winning.

I think I have actually managed to catch up. I think I am more surprised than anyone. It has been fun and games, NOT, here this week. New boiler, oil tank and plumbing. Workmen everywhere all week. House is in chaos. Even more than usual. Filthy. Muddy footprints throughout. But nearly finished, I hope. John just said they will be back Monday. Hope he is joking or it is a small amendment!
