Hipping and Hopping with Your Next Stamp's August release

Photobucket

Hello! We have another special Blog Hop this month because Your Next Stamp is celebrating its 3rd Birthday!!! We are so excited about this milestone, and we have some fun and ADORABLE projects to share with you today!  You should have arrived from Wendy's blog but in case you get lost along the way there is a linky list at the bottom of my post.

We are making this hop even more fun, because we have put together a scavenger hunt! Each DT member and guest has a bold, colored letter on her blog. Collect all the letters and unscramble them to find the special saying. Once you do that, e-mail Karen at karen@yournextstamp.com and you will qualify for the $25 YNS shopping spree GRAND PRIZE!!!

We also have 3 special new release prize packs hidden along the hop. Just leave comments along the way to win!  You have until August 9th at 12 midnight EST to play along and the winners will be announced August 10th on the YNS Blog!

And now, onto my projects.  Today I have two cards I created using the new owl images.  This first one is a masculine inspired graduation card using the new Grad Owl.


In honour of YNS's third birthday, my second card, is a BRIGHT and fun card using the birthday owl.


As always we have some awesome specials at the YNS Store. Everyone will receive a FREE scratch card with every purchase all month long or while supplies last.  Every card is a WINNER!


Also receive 25% off your order August 6th-August 10th! Online code is HAPPY

Karen has just improved the YNS Store website, so make sure you check it out! We now have larger thumbnails so you can see these adorable images even better!
