Here's my hop card:

 I started by stamping and cutting out the kites (Up, Up, and Away), placing them on my base, and stamping the strings and bows. I attached the kites, popping up the highest one.  I white embossed the sentiment (Up, Up, and Away Sentiments) on a dark blue strip and layered a flag stamped with the checks from Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2. I selectively inked "a little note" from Thanks A Million and stamped it above the flag.  I put a candy dot in the center of each kite and a strip of rhinestones under the sentiment to finish off the card.

Finally, we would like to let you know that our friends over at StampNation are celebrating their 4th birthday this week and Whimsy Stamps is one of their sponsors! As well as giving away some great prizes, we also have a special offer for StampNation members - you can find details about this on the StampNation site. We hope you've enjoyed this release! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
