So from the time it landed in my hot little hands till now has been only a few hours!

DDH - Follow Your Dreams Blog hop

Today, we are hopping with Digi Design House, and our theme is Follow Your Dreams. What an amazing amount of stamp sets to choose from! Man, the possibilities!!!! After the hardest decision ever I decided to use the Portfolio Collection set.
Today is our DEBUT BLOG HOP for Digi Design House Dream Team, and since this is our debut hop, we want to take a minute to tell a little about ourselves, so you get to know us, and we get to know each other, a little better.
So here goes... You know that I have a very understanding (sometimes neglected husband).... two beautiful girls... two fur Burmese babies- Tazzy and Charlie Cash. I'm addicted to my copics and any paper I can get me hands on. Yes I work full time and the only night I am not acting as taxi driver to the girls is Monday night! (for now!!!)

And now, back to the stamping stuff! If you came here from Teresa's blog, you're right on track. If not, you'll want to start at the DDH Blog. Be sure to leave some love on each blog, because there is FREE STUFF up for grabs! Three mystery Design Team members will be giving away the Cool Chicks set from Digi Design House to a random commenter on their blog post. You have until 6:00PM CST on Thursday, March 3 to comment. At 6:01PM, the number of comments will be tallied, and the random number generator will do its magic to pick the winner. You don't know which team members have the candy, so make sure you comment on EACH stop in the hop. Additionally, all of the names of our faithful (those of you who comment on EVERY stop on the hop) will be put in a hat to draw an additional set! Oh yes, we are giving away FOUR FREE STAMP SETS!

I hope you have all enjoyed our very first blog hop, and have gotten to know us all a bit better. One last step...head back to the DDH blog to end your hop.
