Bloghop ends here!

You did it! You made it to the end, congratulations! (And if not, click above to start at the beginning!)
What's more perfect to close off the hop than a pinwheel! This one sports some papers from the Yankee Doodle line from We R Memory Keepers - and that's the line of paper being given away for our grand prize during this very hop!


If you've been playing along with our little game, and you have the full answer (hint: 3 words, or 2 words with one being a combo!), then leave it in a comment on this post. We've got comment moderation turned on so it will look like no one has been commenting, but that's so you won't be giving away the answer! And if you haven't been to the S&S blog yet, you might not know what the game is, so go see!


Challenge Announcement
Now that you've been so inspired by all the blogs, it's time to put all that stored-up mojo to use - with a CHALLENGE! Yes, we've got a challenge running now til the end of June - and we're calling it the "Second Million" Challenge! Click on the badge at the left to get details.

Let's get busy on that SECOND MILLION!!! Go make some cards and post on FB, or use InLinkz below to share a link to your creations!


(And if you want to leave a shout out about what you thought of the hop, go do it on the S&S blog so everyone can read your input!)

Any Hero Letters!

Fabulous Hop! Loved all of the samples. I think the answer to the puzzle is - any hero letters.
You had #44 with an asterisk but the blogger did not have a puzzle piece posted - I'm assuming it should have been an "h". Sue berkerster at gmail.com

I love this card, Sandy! I am excited to see this line of paper - I have been looking for patriotic paper for quite some time.

I wanted to be sure to get all of the letters so I visited the * posts first (thanks for the tip on Thursday nite) and I also wanted to be sure all of the * links were working...and they are. :)

The secret phrase is....

Any Hero Letters

Thank you for a wonderful hop!

Since I'm having so many problems with Blogger not taking my comments on several blogs, I thought I'd leave them here.

Elizabeth @ Visions of Paper: Love that Penny Black stamp! So fitting with the little boy and that plane kite. Adorable!

Kerri @ Big Smiles From K Bear: You did an awesome job with Dustin Pike's bears! Your coloring is supreme and the colors are a perfect fit!

Megan Bean: I love all of the hearts on this card. You really softened the sentiment by stamping on the vellum.

Redonna @ Perpetual Playtime: Love the soft purples with this Tilda image that couldn't fit any better for a missing you card! The border punch and the way you framed the sentiment with two strips of ribbon is gorgeous!

Christy Blade Handmade: WOW! Who would think such a simple card would make such a statement! That embossing folder and the colors are perfect!

Yolanda @ Imagine. Make. Share.: Love that Tim Holtz embossing folder! Looks fabulous on this kraft paper especially since you inked it with the brown. Great way to extend sentiments! You made the cards look so different just by moving the sentiment in different positions.

Kris @ A Work of Heart: I love that chair image. I still have one that I sit on all of the time. Your colors are so bright and cheery, and the ruffles are great in all of those wonderful colors!

I'll have more later!

Redonna said...

*** Any Hero Letters ***
Wow! Great Blog-Hop. I just hate that Blogger was acting up so much today. I visited all stops, but I have to go back tomorrow or Monday and try to post to some blogs that Blogger just would not let me post on. Thanks for all the hard you put into this.
TFS,

I tried to post last night but it would not let me in. I do not have my letters unscrambled yet but wanted to let you know I have gone through the list once. I commented on almost everyone. Three of them had some thing that insisted I drop a cookie to post and I did not complete those, sorry but just didn't feel comfortable with that.

Love ya all and thank you for all you do.

Rufus said...

I'm a bit confused, I've been to the 14 blogs with letters, SRTLETHEYRENOA, and collected them. My hubby and I have had a number of laughs trying to make them into 3 words or 2 with a combo, but haven't come up with a thing that makes sense! I'm sure when you reveal all I'll smack myself in the head. Till then, well like I said we've had some good laughs! Still have a few blogs to do, but there's been some great inspiration!

I stopped at all the blogs and then saw that you left a cheater clue...asterisks by the blogs. Ha! I'm glad I devoted all the time to see all the blogs...cheaters never win. Lol!

The phrase I came up with is
ANY HERO LETTERS

This didn't make complete sense to me so it must be wrong...oh, well. Maybe it should have been...
ANY HERO'S LETTER.

This is really hard to do. The only phrase I can come up with is any hero letters. It doesn't make sense to me that it would be 3 words or a combo of 2. But that is my guess. Can't wait to see if it's right.

B-Jo said...

I have tried to unscramble the letters to no avail... It's so sad cause I really wanted to be able to try and in the package... Alas, chemonesia (aka chemo brain) strikes again! We came up with they're and letters... Heroes treat, and a few extra letters... real heroes, and extra letters... they're not real, anyway, I am sure none of these are correct and I am totally bummed, but thank you for the blog hop. I am hoping to participate in the future and make cards. If you find it in your heart to enter me in the drawing anyway, I'd appreciate it, I'd like ti even more if I won.
