Introducing...

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps June blog hop! The team has been so excited for this day to come!  We have a very special hop for you this month. Every image is new and each designer got to chose what image they wanted.  The fabulously talent Faith then created a special digi for them and you get to see them along the hop!   How fun is that??!!!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each designers blog for a chance to win that image. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to receive the image featured there.

In addition to the images offered on each designers blog, one very lucky hopper will be able to work with Faith to create an idea for a specially made image. When you comment on the FtHS blog, please say what kind of image you would like if you are the lucky winner. 


If you have arrived from Angela's blog, you are right on track.  If not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog,  you are not going to want to miss a thing (or a chance to WIN) on this hop!

So, I guess it's a no brainer that I would chose a Birdbrain image.  Living in Hawaii, surfing is a lifestyle so yes, you guessed it, I requested a Surfer Birdbrain.  I LOVE THE IMAGES FAITH CREATED FROM MY WISH!!!  I couldn't stop the cards from happening.  

Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Surf's Up Birdbrain #1-
