Sweet...Sweet Victoria

It's a very *sweet* time again!

Time for another new release week over at

If you've arrived at my blog directly from there,
then you are in the perfect spot!
If not, it's just one stop back to get started on the hop.

Each of the new releases will be available for sale
on Friday, December 2nd and will be at a special
sale price.  Until then, you could win a set by
completing the hop.  More on that in just a sec.

Today's preview is of the new set called 'Sweet Victoria'.
Silhouettes are really hot right now and this beautiful silhouette
is solid and so easy to stamp.
The cabbage roses and leaves are just a few more of the
lovely elements in this lovely set.

I embellished the stamped roses with these miniature
organza roses from Maya Road and of course, used my
favorite inks from A Muse Studio (colors in the recipe below).
These inks are available from my web store HERE.

It's time to get hopping...and here are the details before
I send you on your way.

To be eligible for stamp set a day:
**Make sure to visit each blog on the hop.
There are only 9 blogs each day, so it's a very 'do-able' hop!
**Leave an 'original' comment on each designers' blog.
(no copy and pasting, please)
**Be sure to follow the Sweet Stamp Shop blog and while you're at it,
our designers would love for you to follow them as well

For additional entries:
**Like our FB page
**Share our giveaway & blog hop with your friends
and leave us a note either on our FB page or on the SSS Blog

It is now time to send you on to my very talented friend, 

Have a great time on the hop!
