{WEEK 1} Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop and Linky Party!

Hey, stamping friends! Are you ready to celebrate spring with us all month? We've got the perfect event for that here on the blog: the Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop and Linky Party!

For the next 4 Wednesdays, we'll be sharing our winged-themed spring projects. You're sure to be inspired and we would love for you to join us by creating and linking your own spring projects -- anything is welcome as long as there are wings in it -- butterflies, dragonflies, birds, fairies, bugs, bees, pterodactyl...anything that flies, really! :o) 

Commenting and linking up is from today until Sunday, April 30, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. We'll announce the winners on May 10 in the April Challenges & Hops winners post so be sure to follow our blog if you aren't already.

We'll be drawing EIGHT lucky crafters to win these prizes:
  • THREE (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $10 gift certificate to the store
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant in the Things with Wings Spring linky party will receive Trendy Butterflies 2 + either Flutter Zen 1 or Flutter Zen 2 layering dies

Oh, and before we really start with the hop, we have a winner to announce. Already? Yep! Thank you to all of you ladies who linked up in this post here and displayed the Things with Wings event graphic on your blogs! Mr. Random picked: 

Congratulations, Christi! You won a spring-themed package ($30 value): your choice of (1) 4x6 stamp set, (1) layering dies, and (1) word/phrase die from our spring release. Please claim your prize on or before April 15 by sending an email to sheryruss@gmail.com. If I don't hear from you within 10 days, I'll draw another winner and announce who it is on the Week 3 Things with Wings post on April 19.
