Welcome to the Create A Smile First Release Blog Hop!
You should have come here by way of the amazing Anika Lerche,
the first German paper crafter I ever came across.
Her work is so beautiful and brilliant, you will instantly want to add her blog
to your visitation rotation so you can be continually inspired by her as I am.
If you are just popping in now, be sure to head back to
the Create A Smile blog so you can begin the hop from the start
and not miss out on any of the fantastic projects linked up today.

I used the awesome Surfing Penguin, which is a FREE
digital stamp that Christine has available on the blog,
along with that great sentiment from Comfy.
And now, a little bit more about Create A Smile.
Create a Smile is a new stamp company in town, located in Germany! This is super exciting for me, because I was married in Germany and it is also the country where my husband and my three sons were born. We made our home there for five happy years and I love to go back and visit my husband's family any time we get a chance.
But back to Create A Smile stamps. :)
When Christine Drogt started illustrating and sharing images with friends, it soon became crystal-clear that those images would make awesome clear stamps. Because Christine has always loved to make people smile (it can be as easy as smiling at strangers!) the name was found quickly (thanks to her friend Alison!) and the vision became reality.
Create A Smile stamps are made of high quality photo-polymer and produced in Germany. They will for sure make you smile!
