Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Sponsor

Your Next Stamp is this weeks proud sponsor of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! Be sure to check out all the details and link your card to the Midnight Madness Challenge blog for your chance to win some YNS stamps.

I found the sketch this week really fun and it definitely challenged me to take my creativity to a new level which is awesome!!!

I’ve used a few different stamps for this card…

Mermaid and Starfish – Happy Days Mermaid stamp set

Bubbles – Just Swimming By Mermaid stamp set

Turtle – Happy Birthday Mermaid stamp set

Thanks! – Thanks! stamp set

The designer paper is DB High Tide and I’ve used some shimmer cardstock along with the some of the aqua paper from the Prism Teal Paper Pack. I colored the mermaid, turtle and starfish with Copics and then finished the card off with some diamond stickles and pearls. I just love how it turned out!

Just for fun I made my card into a Thank You card so that it goes along with YNS Challenge #4 – giving thanks! You too can combine your challenges and join in the fun over at the YNS Challenge blog!

Enjoy your day!

Your Next Stamp Challenge #4

YAY!!! It’s time for another Your Next Stamp Challenge!!! This weeks hostess is Stephanie and she as challenged us all to make a card to give to someone we are thankful for!
I am so thankful for all the wonderful people in my life! I decided to make a card for Brandon’s Grandparents for all the wonderful things they do for us. I’ve used the Monkey Gone Bananas stamp which was designed with Brandon in mind since he is our little monkey! The little flower stamp is from the Wild About You stamp set – which I totally adore! The Thanks! sentiment is from the Thanks! stamp set. I colored everything in with Copics and finished it off with the pearls that I’m totally loving right now! I used the sketch from Jen’s Sketch For You To Try – I love this layout! Thanks Jen for all the inspiration. YNS is the sponsor for this SFYTT so why not combine your YNS challenge #4 entry with Jen’s sketch for your chance to win $10 in YNS bucks!
Since our challenges are meant to be fun and we want everyone to participate I’ve decided to allow any stamps to be used when creating your challenge card. Although I would love for you to use a YNS image so if you do your name will be entered in twice for this weeks prize which is $10 in YNS bucks to spend at the YNS store!
In addition to the prize this week I’m giving every single participant a free limited edition YNS digital stamp – YAY! If you already own all of our limited edition digital stamps than I will give you $3 in YNS bucks to put towards your next purchase.
Your next step is to hop on over to the YNS Challenge blog and join in all the fun!

November Stamp Winner

I hope you all had a Happy Halloween! Even though I am fighting a flu bug my son managed to make me laugh on Halloween with all his quirky little gestures. At first he wanted nothing to do with his monkey costume and then later on in the day he brought it to me and wanted me to help him put it on – that was so cute! Then as the door bell started ringing he realized all the other kids were dressed up and he wanted to hand out the candy so him and daddy handed out candy and then went to visit a few friends in the neighbourhood. The best part was on Sunday night when it got dark he wanted to put his costume on again and then he ran to the door waiting for all the kids and when no one came trick or treating he decided it was time to play with all the left over candy we had – what great fun it is to transfer candy from a bowl to a bag over and over again! The simple things in life are always the best things!
Ok now on to our November stamp winner ๐Ÿ™‚ This month I used the random number generator and I got follower 156…
Melanie – I don’t have a link to reference but you have red hair in your picture
Please email me your 3 favorite stamps from YNS along with your address. I’ll pick one from the three you choose.
We are starting YNS challenge #3 on Wednesday so I hope you stop by and join in the fun for another chance to win some YNS stamps!
