{Special Post} STAMPlorations and the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + Comment to Win

Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea or chocolate)! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.

Amy and Chaitali have invited lots of sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a fall/winter-themed project featuring coffee, tea and/or cocoa images. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, December 7. Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn! (Psst! Keep scrolling for a free digi stamp you can use in your projects as well as blog candy!)

And here are projects the STAMPgirls made using STAMPlorations products:


Guess what? I'll randomly pick TWO (2) coffee- (or tea- or chocolate-) loving crafters to win a few more prizes: one will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store and one will receive the Coffee to Go: Fall and Winter stamp set. Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, December 9. Easy peasy! Winners will be announced in the November Winners post on December 10 so make sure to follow our blog so you don't miss that post.

And here's that free digi stamp you can use to create coffee projects to link up to the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop for even more chances at the sponsor prizes. It's the digi stamp we currently offer on our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge page. If you use the image, be sure to link up your project there too because we draw two winners of gift certificates every month.
