Blog Hop day for Clear Dollar Stamps


Are you read for a fun hop?  I hope so because today is the April hop for Clear Dollar Stamps.  This month our theme is We're Not Horsin' Around.  We are featuring our Charlie and Charliene stamps.  If you have come from our wonderful Lisa's Blog than you are on the right track.  If not, you will want to start over at the Clearly iStamp Blog so you don't miss anything.  I choose the stamp set called Charlie Summer Fun.  With this set you will receive this Charlie with the floatie around his waist and Charliene relaxing in a lawn chair, plus 6 different sentiments.  



I cut off Charlie's legs and put him in the water.  Then I put him into a shaker box with tiny blue beads.  The shaker boxes take a lot of time to make but they sure are worth the effort in the end.  You can see a little of the shine from the transparency of the shaker box.  Now off on the rest of the hop.  You are now going to Jennifer's Blog.  Have a wonderful time and remember to leave us all a comment so you are in the drawing for the grand prize.  I would love to enter this card into these challenges:
Sweet Sketch - Sketch
Frosted Design - Weather
CRAFT - Photo inspiration - I used the water.
Crafts and Me - 3D embellishments (shaker box and flowers)
Sentimental Sundays - Frame It
Stampin' Sister's in Christ - Transparancy
