Your Next Stamp 'Easter & Mother's Day' BLOG HOP!!!

[Click on the pic to enlarge]

Hello everyone and welcome to the...

 Your Next Stamp 'Easter & Mother's Day' Blog Hop!

The YNS Starlets have some brand new Fhiona & Dale Designs stamp sets to show you today that are perfect for Easter and Mother's Day!

If you'd like to participate in the hop, and you didn't arrive here from the fabulous Maylee's blog, then click here to return to the start of the blog hop, as you don't want to miss all the fab new releases!

We are doing something different for this hop and combining it with our new Your Next Stamp Challenge #11 which is to use a BIG BOW, so you should see a lot of bows along the hop!  So when you get to the end of the hop, you should find yourself at the YNS Challenge blog!  You don't have to enter the challenge to enter our Blog Hop Prize Draw, but if you do, you'll get a 2nd entry into the draw!  We have a fab grand prize (randomly drawn) for one lucky winner, who will receive 2 of the new release stamp sets as their prize (winner's choice).  We also have a Mystery Prize lurking somewhere on one of the Starlet's blogs.  None of us knows what the prize is or from which Starlet's blog the winning comment will be drawn, so make sure you comment on EVERY blog along the hop to be entered into the prize draw!

The hop starts today (Wednesday 3rd March) and ends on Tuesday 16th March at midnight EST - that's 2 whole weeks!!

For this hop, the Starlets were challenged to create a card and a matching bag/box/basket using one of the new release stamp sets.

I used the adorable "Hoppy Easter Fhiona" stamp set for my blog hop/challenge creations, which includes Bunny Fhiona, 3 individual egg stamps, and 2 sentiment stamps "Just hopping by to say..." and "Hoppy Easter":




I'd like to enter my card & basket into the following challenges:

1. ASFOS ... Challenge 93 Beads : Shary has challenged everyone to use beads on your projects.
2. Creative Card Crew ... It's a Celebration : This fortnight, CCC are are celebrating their 1st Birthday - Happy Birthday CCC! Paula has set the challenge of of "Celebrations", and so my Easter celebration fits the bill nicely!
3. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 101 Ribbons : They want to see cards or projects that feature ribbon....either a little or a lot!
4. Stamp Something ... Recipe : All you need to do is include....Designer Paper, Button(s), Ribbon [my button is on the top of the bow on top of the handle of my basket!]
5. Crazy 4 Challenges ... C4C26 Texture : They want you to create a card/project using at least 3 different textures.  My textures are 'ribbon', 'button with thread' and the 'raised/embossed/glittered design paper'.
 
Okay, so off you 'hop' to the uber-talented Cabio's blog ... but don't forget to leave me a comment first! :o)

Thanks so much for popping by!

Hugs,
