Clear Dollar Stamp's Sweet Blog Hop

Charlie loves his sweets.... and so does Clear Dollar Stamps!!!! CDS has a new store or should I say Sweet Shop for you to buy all of your stamping goodies! In honor of this, we are having a Grand Opening Blog Hop and revealing a new set called Everyday Jar-gon made especially for the occasion. The retail value of this set is $14.99 but if you but it from the store between August 15th and 31st - it's yours for $9.99. With every purchase made during this time, there is also a promotional stamp that you'll receive free.

If you came here from Wendy's blog, then you're in the right place. If you aren't sure, you can always go back to the beginning by clicking on the blog hop picture above.


No jellybeans were eaten in the making of this card! Yeah right! To tell you the truth, I had to hide the jellybeans because of course I bought my favorite flavors.... and the Crystal Effects were taking forever to dry. I'll put my recipe at the end of this blog post.

Now on to the good stuff!!!! On each DT member's blog in the blog hop, you will find a letter. Make sure you check out everyone's blog to find the letters to spell out a special phrase. Believe me, it is totally worth it!!!

I bring to you the Letter
H


There are two prizes available and how to enter:
1 - Make sure you leave me a comment for your chance to win the set below, Everyday Jar-gon (you have the opportunity to enter on each member's blog).





We will each be drawing a name on our blogs so you'll have many opportunities to win this set. Please leave contact info so that I can let you know if you've won the set on my blog. I will be drawing for this set at the end of the day on August 16th.


2 - The Big Grand Prize!!!! Once you have collected all the letters and figured out the special phrase, email Katie at cdsblogcandy@gmail.com with the phrase. The prize... Do I have you wondering yet???? You have the opportunity to win September 1st's entire release and believe me - they're awesome!!!! You will have the opportunity to enter for the Grand Prize from August 15th to the 31st.
