Firecracker Designs November Blog Hop

Hi all! It’s time for this year’s last blog hop with the Firecracker Designs. All the info about the hop is further down in this post. I HAVE to share my card first. LOL! The theme for this hop is Thank You and the set I’m working with this month is the Sheperd Snow Family. BlogHop NovemberAren’t they CUTE!!! Lot’s of stickles and distressing on this one, it really shimmers, but it won’t show on the photo.

Over to the formalities:

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!This month, there will be a blog candy at every blog! Yeah, that’s right! If you go through the full hop, it will give you 9 chances to win a set of stamps! Be sure to leave a comment!!!

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on the blogs after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Next stop on the hop is the blog of lovely



…and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!
