Fall is on the way…

and that means my family goes apple picking!!! FUN! I love this time of year! Although I’m really going to miss the HOT summer days πŸ™‚ I guess I’ll just have to stamp a card with Summer Fun Fhiona to keep near by when I’m missing the beach weather! LOL
To celebrate apple picking season I’m sharing this sneaky peeky card today of our super cute image of a little girl with apples πŸ™‚ I love this image and can’t wait to show you all the other fun new releases on Sept. 23rd!!! We’ve got Fall, Christmas, more Halloween and a few new Fhiona stamps coming your way! Plus the YNS store is now loaded with fun new Christmas DP and goodies so be sure to check it all out!

Well I’m off for a few days as my hubby is taking a few days of holidays so I’ll be back on Thursday with a new card and post! {don’t worry all orders will still be shipped – remember to join our newsletter to hear about the secret sales}
Oh and just in case you were wondering…Chris’s team kicked my booty way out in left field in our fantasy football game – darn!

Puffy Snow!

Oh how I love when UPS shows up at Your Next Stamp! That’s right UPS dropped off some fun things yesterday that I’ll be posting to the store very soon!
I just love green and blue together! Such nice winter colors πŸ™‚ Almost as much as I love baubles! You’ve probably noticed that I bauble almost everything! This card is my sneaky peeky card of the day and yes, it has baubles on it! You’ll see lots of fun new things on this card. The tree stamp will be released as part of a larger set on September 23rd during our super fun blog hop – remember to mark your calendars! The picture doesn’t show this very well but the snow on the trees is all puffy – COOL! I finally got some of that fun Liquid Applique in for the store so look for that soon! Plus that pretty DP will be available in the YNS store as well πŸ™‚

Sneaky Peeky Fun!

Well you might be thinking WOW Karen has some busy card going on here πŸ™‚ You’re right I do and it’s for our little sneaky peeky game today!

The card posted has some stamps that belong to a new Fhiona set but I’m not showing you Fhiona, I’ll let the DT do that during the HUGE new release blog hop happening on September 23rd so mark your calenders and tell all your friends because this is one blog hop you will not want to miss!!!

If you want a chance to win this new stamp set plus a $10 YNS gift certificate than all you have to do is post a comment telling me what the 4 stamps are that you see on the card plus post the name of the designer paper I used ( can find the DP in the store) then I’ll do a random draw for the winner on Sept 23rd! FUN!

Also remember to check out our new Yahoo Group HERE! All members that join and introduce themselves are entered into a draw for a $20 YNS gift certificate πŸ™‚

It’s Friday!!!

YAY! The long weekend is here which means my hubby is home for 3 days and that gives me more time to play with all the new rubber that just arrived – he he he! Don’t worry we’ll have some sneak peeks for you really soon!
Also the long weekend means Fantasy Football Draft around here! Yep you heard me right, if you can’t beat em’ join em’! I used to complain about football season so my hubby started a fantasy football league with all our friends and family so that I would be entertained while watching football. I got totally suckered into this!!! My fantasy team made it to the Superbowl 2 years ago and just missed out last year…this really upsets my brother in law cause check out how I pick my team members…
  1. do I like the color of the teams jersey
  2. do I think their name is cool (Cadillac is on my team and so is Toushy – well that’s what I call him anyway)
  3. are their butts firm – this really should be #1
  4. does my hubby rave about how good they are and he can’t believe no one has them on their team – I use this info and steal them from the waiver wire before he can – ha ha ha – last year I got Hightower this way – shhh our little secret!

So wish me luck on Sunday – that’s draft night πŸ™‚

Ok moving on to the posted cards…

Thanks Melanie for sending me this cute apple card – love the gems girl!!!

The other is another one of my little cute creations – thought I should post this for my hubby since we’re buddies and after he reads this I’ll need to suck up. Love you hunny! You are my best buddy!

Don’t forget about our 15% off going on all week until Sunday at midnight and I’ll post the winner of the stamp set from our amazing followers list on Tuesday πŸ™‚

Hugs to all and enjoy your long weekend!

Today feels like Christmas!!!

Good Morning!

Brandon is at Grandma’s today and I had some extra time to myself yesterday so I thought it felt kinda like Christmas πŸ™‚ I’m sure you all know what I mean – free time with kids – what’s that??? I know everyone is just at the edge of their seats waiting for the DT announcement so wait no further…I decided to make the big announcement today! I hope everyone is alright with me posting the names early πŸ™‚

As you all have probably noticed everyone who applied is so talented! I had a really hard time making this decision. I would have listed all of you here but that would just be a little crazy – yes, even a little too crazy for me! So if you don’t see your name it doesn’t mean I didn’t absolutely LOVE your work because I did!!! I loved all of your blogs and cards πŸ™‚ I will be calling on guest designers starting in January so if this interests you let me know πŸ™‚

So let’s give a big round of applause for…

Steph H.
Amy L.

{ok stop jumping around…your neighbours are starring, oh, who cares keep jumping – it’s FUN!}

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I look forward to working with all of you!!!

Please email me so we can get you started πŸ™‚

Thank you again for everyone who applied – you are all truly amazing people and very artistic!

As an additional little surprise I have launched a few Christmas stamps today! Plus some of our fun Christmas stuff in our new Christmas section πŸ™‚ The card above is Fhiona with her little friend penguin – CUTE!!! and the paper and brads are from the Colorful Christmas collection.

Plus as a huge THANKS I have decided to give everyone 15% off everything in the store for the rest of the week!!! COOL!!! Your sale code is ‘THANKS’ The sale will end Sunday at midnight.

Enjoy your day!
