YNS New Release Blog Hop




Welcome to the Your Next Stamp March New Release BLOG HOP!



We have some amazing new YNS stamps to show you today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favourites.

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Peggy's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at Simonne’s blog, as you don't want to miss these fab new releases!

The hop starts today (8 March 2011 at 08:00 EST) and ends on 11 March 2011 at midnight EST.

As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win! One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive a surprise package of new release stamps!

You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop along the hop (although we hope you will visit every blog!). The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that? Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop - you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed. It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of our new release creations!
