Welcome to our Second Birthday Celebration and Blog Hop!

It has been two years since we asked...

What is your favorite sundae?  Is it piled high with all the fixings and loaded with calories?  Do you treasure every bite only to growl at the scale later?

...and for the past TWO years you have been enjoying your Sundays with us! 

To celebrate, we have put together a birthday blog hop and an extra special challenge.  This week we would like you to show us your favorite challenge from the past and hop along with us for extra chances to win!

Helping us to celebrate our second birthday are a few of our upcoming sponsors for this year:

Bugaboo Digi Stamps - 7 Digital Images


My Favorite Things - $20 Gift Voucher

Simply Betty Stamps - all six Sweet Gothic Kids Birthday digis

Stamp & Create - Kimono Butterfly Mermaid
Tickled Pink - Lil Valentine Cherrie Tag (rubber)

To celebrate we're having a blog hop sprinkled with fixings - blog candy fixings! In addition to the candy we have here, some of our design team has candy on their own blogs. Hop along and see how many fixings you can find and check out our team's lovely creations along the way. Leave them some love for all of their work while you're there - and don't forget to pick up your word!

In case you get lost along the way, here is the order of the blog hop:

Christine
Jenny
Julie
Karina
Kat
Lisa
Sara
Shana
Shanna
 
and then back here as your final stop, remembering to leave a comment on this post with all the words that you have collected!  Comments are now hidden until the blog hop is over.

Blog hop participants will be eligible to win one of six prizes in addition to the blog candy on individual blogs.  This week's random challenge winner will win a $20 gift certificate to one of our sponsor's stores - winner's choice.

To qualify for the blog hop you have to:
1. Post a comment on each of the cards along the hop
2. Leave a comment on this post with the words you have collected along the way


Your first stop is Christine!

You have until Saturday, January 21st to enter the challenge and finish the blog hop.  Winners will be posted Thursday, January 26th!  Good Luck!


For the challenge, the regular rules apply:
Entry rules include that card creations must be new, linked back to the challenge, and the link posted must link directly to the card.  Maximum three entries per person please however you may combine our challenge with others to a maximum of ten challenges.

So go pick your favorite Paper Sundaes challenge and play along with us!  Just be sure to let us know which challenge you chose!
Shana, Christine & our Paper Sundaes team

First of all congratulations on the two year anniversary.
Found it very nice to get past the DT blog hopping. They are very beautiful creations made ​​with lots of nice details too. Alone can not respond Karina and Shana. The blog does so weird. Too bad though.
The sentence which I have collected the blog is hopping: The paper sundaes challenge blog really rocks my socks.

Hugs Astrid.

What a great hop! The DT has made some beautiful pieces of artwork. Congrats on your anniversary and here's a wish for many more. The secret sentence is: The Paper Sundaes Challenge blog really rocks my socks.

Chris said...

I hit a few problems along the way. I don't know if it is just my computer or if others are having this problem. I tried to leave comments on every stop but could not leave one on Karin's blog or on Shana's blog.
Here's the words:
the Paper Sundaes challenge blog really rocks my socks.
At the end I couldn't link back to this blog, don't know if that is a problem with my computer either.
I'll try to get to another computer and see if I can comment from there.

Leslie Turner said...

Ooops - when I left my comment a few minutes ago, I should have mentioned that I was unable to leave a comment on Karina's Blog for her "Waiting At Dawn" card, nor on Shana's Blog for her "Sitting Tilda With Teddy Bear" card. I got a white page with nothing on it when I clicked to leave a comment. Thanks!
