Okay, so it's official ... I have the full blown flu, complete with a hacking and very painful cough! Urgh! However, I'd still like to welcome you to the ........ Your Next Stamp SURPRISE BLOG HOP!
Before I continue I just want to say a very Happy Birthday to my wonderful crafting buddy, Shelia (aka DippyDog). Hope you have a fabulous day!!! :o)
I'm the last stop of our surprise hop and I'm also hosting the prize draw, so if you didn't arrive here from Kerri's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at the Karen's blog and begin hopping!
The hop starts today (Friday, October 15th at 9:00 EST) and ends on Sunday, October 17th at midnight (EST).
So what's this surprise hop about? Well....if you've popped by any of the YNS DT's blogs this week, you may have read our posts about today's very special hop showcasing a VERY special, NEW and EXCLUSIVE YNS stamp! The DT have been 'in the know' about a secret project involving YNS and ScrapFest for a little while, and now the day has finally come when we can officially announce the proud news that Karen was approached by Lisa (owner of ScrapFest in Ontario) to design an exclusive YNS stamp for this autumn's ScrapFest (15-16 October 2010)- YAY!! And here it is:
I have followed this week's lovely sketch #85 over at CardPatterns, used some SU card and Cosmo Cricket DeLovely DP. Not sure why, but it was very difficult to get a good shot of this card. After some editing, I still can't get the colours to represent what the look like in IRL! The yellow is more 'yellow' and her brown hair and table are not as 'red'! I have used E31, E33, E35 and E37 to colour the browns, so those of you who use Copics will know how the colour looks IRL!! :o)
This stamp will be available to buy from the Your Next Stamp booth at ScrapFest Ontario, but fear not if you can't get along to ScrapFest as Karen is also selling this fabulous stamp in the YNS online store!! IMPORTANT: This stamp will only be available to buy online for the duration of ScrapFest, so do not delay in placing your order! As it is only available for a very limited time, Karen is offering the stamp at a very special price of $6 with FREE SHIPPING!! (*NB Free shipping only applies to the ScrapFest stamp - if you include other items in your order, you will be charged shipping accordingly).
