Join our Combined Blog Hop!

Hello Crafters! I'm excited to welcome you to the very first joint blog hop with EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps!

Erin Sparler of EyeConnect Crafts (USA) and I, Bibi Lindahl of Rubber Dance Stamps (Norway), met online in the fall of 2015. We quickly hit it off and discovered that we had a LOT in common, or as Erin so eloquently put it: There is no word for old friends who have just met! ♥
The Design Teams have been supplied with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and rubber stamps from Rubber Dance Stamps and we are all thrilled to show you the results with this joint Blog Hop!


What's in it for you?
Glad you asked! One lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate worth $25 from BOTH EyeConnect Crafts AND Rubber Dance to spend on our websites! Another lucky winner will receive a surprise gift from BOTH Erin and me, with $25 worth of products from our two companies!

What do you have to do?
Not much! 
1) Visit all the blog posts in the hop and leave a comment - if possible (where no log-in is required).
2) Become a follower of the EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps blogs.

That's it! And who knows... maybe YOU will tie new bonds of friendships across the globe, too! :-)

You have until Valentine's Day, Sunday the 14th at midnight EST (New York time), which is 6 am Monday 15th for those of you on Central European Time (Amsterdam, Berlin, Oslo), and 5 am if you live in the UK. You can find a time converter here. Winners will be announced 18th of February.

Edited Monday: Thank you so much for all the lovely comments! 

The winners will be picked among those who left a comment in time, but you may of course leave a comment anyway and hop around to see what all the participants of the hop have made (hop links below).

Here is what I've made, using the Lace-Up Glove chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts, together with the giraffe, mannequin, buttons and other stamps from the Rubber Dance set called "Sew Sweet".



Some close-ups of details:

Glove chipboards attached to card with brads so they can be moved up and down. One hand/glove holding a greeting. 
Other hand/glove holding a heart; red rhinestone on one finger.



Enjoy the hop and good luck!
