Your Next Stamp Challenge - Bookmark It

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!! Today its time for another fun challenge over at Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog!!! This weeks challenge is a fun one, TO BOOKMARK IT!!! I love making bookmarks they are such great gifts and just perfect for those reading lovers!!!

Well in my blog hopping I came across a few of Cheryl's awesome ribbon bookmarks.Have you seen them?? They are fabulous!!!...This was something I felt was different and I REALLY liked how hers turned out and wanted to give it a shot!!! Her blog is full of inspiring work, so if you have a chance stop by and check out her GREAT blog HERE!!! Thanks Cheryl for the inspiration you gave me on this bookmark design!!!!

For my bookmark today I used this ADORABLE Your Next Stamp image Thankful For You Fhiona. AWWW isn't she sweet??? I really wanted to make something fallish and she was just perfect!!! Hope you enjoy my creation today!!

I computer generated the sentiment, Let's Fall into Reading!!! Thought that was kind of catchy..LOL!!!!

Your Next stamp offers 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will 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 Karen, 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 2 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!

So come on over and join in the fun HERE for a chance to WIN!!!

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