Valentine Blog Hop with Gingersnaps and The Artistic Stamper




Welcome to the Gingersnap Creations’ Valentine Blog Hop and Hop Stop #6!

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 8 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 the goodies in the Valentine Giveaway including some treats from The Artistic Stamper.

When you get all your words, 9 in all, unscramble them to form a quotation about love. Once you have your guess at the quote, email it and your name to gingersnapstamp@gmail.com by February 20, 2010. We will be picking one lucky winner at random from the correct entries to win the Valentine Giveaway package! 

If you visit all the stops, you should end up right back at Gingersnap Creations with 9 words! Unscramble the words to come up with a love quote and email it on to gingersnapstamp@gmail.com. That's all there is to it!

If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire route at Gingersnap Creations.

My word is "love".

Your next stop on the hop is Lynn at Trash to Treasure Art. Have fun and good luck!



Also over on Gingersnaps this week there is a Lace and Fibers challenge. I have made this card to fir in with this challenge and to show case further the wonderful stamps by The Artistic Stamper, Jennie. They are just fab and some really useful background stamps as well. Here I have used the polka dot stamp background. Just great! And the plain heart with some profile elegant women from the 20's. stamped inside. Finished with "The Roaring Twenties" stamp.


I love this period in the 20th century for woman. For a long time they had been harnessed and bound up in corsets. Suddenly there was a whole movement to free woman and allow them to move and breath again. To have short hair if desired and be liberated from confining clothing. The start of more freedom for women.
