Your Next Stamp - Sketch Challenge

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!! Today its time for another fabulous challenge over at Your Next Stamp. This week our fabulous DT member Kerri created this AWESOME sketch for you to try!!! Come on over and join the fun HERE at our blog!!!

This sketch was such a BLAST...I used this darling image Birthday Surprise Fhiona...she is just sooo fun for those birthday cards. I decided to attach a piece of silver twine to add to her fun balloon!! Hope you enjoy my creation today!!!

As always, we have 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:

1. Winner – one lucky winner will be chosen by to win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by the YNS DT, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [NB You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

We’d love to see you use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, but if you don’t have one, then you can still join in and be entered into the prize draw! As our challenge runs for 3 whole weeks you have plenty of time to hop on over to the YNS Store and pick up some of these cuties yourself! And if you do use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, you’ll be entered into the prize draw TWICE and be entered into the Top Pick draw – that’s 3 chances to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope everyone has a FABULOUS Wednesday!!!
