Hi Everyone and before the bells ring at midnight I would like to wish you ALL a very happy, healthy and peaceful new year. I really hope it is a good one for you.

This week at the Stamp Man we have a challenge and the 2nd annual blog awards event. The challenge is to show us your best or most favourite project for 2010. Go on have a look back at what you have created over the past year and decide which piece you would like to use for your entry.
This is mine - A Family memories Tag Book (click to see the original post and more photos)




Now join in the challenge and link it to the Stamp Man challenge blog. Then go a-wandering to see what all the DT have chosen as their favourite pieces - there is some beautiful and inspiring work to look at and take part in the blog hop. Start at The Stamp Man Main Blog. If you have arrived here with me from Michelle, then you are well on your way and collecting letters as you go round. My letter for you to collect is E and you should now hop over to the ATC blog HERE for the next letter. Leave a comment on all the blogs you visit and once you have followed your way around and collected all the letters you will find on each blog, work out the answer and email it to: thestampman@btconnect.com by 9pm (GMT) on Thursday 13th January 2011. Please put BLOGHOP ANSWER as the title of the message.
Please post our event blinkie onto your blog or write a post about the event with your best/favourite project.

We are really looking forward to seeing your choices and having some fun. There will be some prizes on offer and you can see these on the main blog at the start of the blog hop. The winners will be randomly selected and everyone is welcome to join in.

Take care and have a fabulous evening and a great 2011.
