Altenew & Pretty Pink Posh collaboration blog hop!

Happy birthday
Hey!

Happy Friday and welcome to a fabulous blog hop full of sequins, super stamps, delightful dies, inspiration, prizes and more as Altenew joins forces with Pretty Pink Posh!


You should have hopped across here from Yuki Yoshioka but if you haven't, then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ. :)

Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh products make the perfect pair for gorgeous goodies to create fun cards. I couldn't resist using the Stitched Duo 2 die set to transform those circles into balloons along with adding a scattering of sequins and a sentiment from my go-to Altenew birthday stamp set, Birthday Greetings. :)

Now what's a blog hop without some prizes? We have two $30 gift certificates for Altenew and two for Pretty Pink Posh to give away. There are two ways to win as Altenew will pick two winners for the Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and Pretty Pink Posh will pick two winners for the Altenew gift certificates. The best thing is that all you have to do is leave a comment along the hop by Monday 26th October 11:59pm EDT to enter. Simple! Winners will be announced on the Altenew blog and Pretty Pink Posh blog. :)

Well I best let you continue hopping! You're very near the end as the next, and final, stop of the blog is Pretty Pink Posh HQ!

Thanks so much for hopping along with me today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
