StampNation Beach Vacation Design Team Blog Hop

How would you like to take a beach vacation with a fabulous group of people who love stamping?  Well, come along for the StampNation Beach Vacation.  To kick things off the amazing StampNation Dream Team and fabulous Guest Designers have put together a blog hop for you, and we are letting you all see our first card.



Our first challenge is Beach Style.  If you're going to the beach you are going to need some beach shoes for walking in the sand.  Mine had to have a little bling on them, so I added a sequin flower and rhinestone.  :)


Now for the full card.  It's so fun to be able to share a full design team card with all of you.



Now for the really fun part.  PRIZES!  Be sure to comment on each of the blogs to be eligible to win...

Choice of Lawn Fawn Stamp Set & Let's Polka 6x6 Pad

For each of these prizes, one winner will be randomly drawn from all the blog hop comments.  A second winner will be chosen from all the challenge entries at StampNation!

You have until 11:59pm EST on July 27th to leave a comment.  Winners will be chosen randomly and will be announced on Monday July 28th on Catherine's blog. Ready to get hopping?  Next up on the hop is the incredibly talented Allison Cope.
