YNS Challenge #9 – Use a Charm

WOW! The past few weeks just flew by and it’s already time for YNS Challenge #9! YAY! This week the talented Starlet Maureen has challenged us to use a charm somewhere on our card or creation. I love charms!!!

I decided to use a flower charm to go along with the adorable Aloha Fhiona stamp set. I used the sentiment ‘celebrate’ from the Mixed Bag of Greetings stamp set and then stamped Happy Birthday on the inside of the card.

I’d also like to introduce you to our fabulous guest Starlet Suzie! She’ll be joining us for the month of February so be sure to show her some YNS love!!!

Hop on over to the YNS Challenge blog and join in the fun for your chance to win some YNS bucks!!!

YNS Challenge #8 – Sparkle

Well it’s no secret that I love glitter and all things that sparkle so when it came my turn to host the YNS challenge I just couldn’t help myself! Challenge #8 is all about Sparkle! As long as you’ve got sparkle on your card or creation you can join in the fun!

I’ve used Fhiona and her Best Buddy Fhinn for my card. The dp is Pink Paislee – Cupid Hearts Bloom that I just adore and then I added some glitter dots, heart gems and some extra glitter using the new Copic glitter pens.

I was happy to see so many participants join us for challenge #7 – thank you for sharing all your wonderful creations! The only thing that could possibly make this challenge even better is if we have more participants using our fabulous YNS stamps.

Getting Organized

Hi Everyone!

January really did sneak up on me and I have admit I had a little bit of the ‘holiday brain’ so I wasn’t very organized coming back to work after the holidays – sorry!

I haven’t yet introduced you to our January guest Starlets so I’d like to give a very warm welcome to Lori and Jenny! Thanks for joining us ladies! Be sure to show them lots of YNS love!

You will see their fabulous creations on the YNS Challenge Blog this January. Have you noticed that the YNS Challenge Blog has a brand spankin new look?? Thanks to Simonne our challenge blog is organized, easy to follow and looks fabulous!!! Thanks hun – you ROCK! Be sure to check out YNS Challenge #7 which is all about embossing for your chance to win some YNS bucks to use towards your next or maybe even your first YNS stamp purchase!

Lori and Jenny will be joining us for the YNS January blog hop as well!

Speaking of blog hops look for our blog hop blinkie contest this Monday! I’m super excited about the 4 new Fhiona sets being released and I just know you will LOVE them too!

Since I’m in organization mode I thought I share some pics of the new YNS office/craft room! It still needs the YNS logo, some curtains and few more wall hangings but this is what it looks like so far. I’d like to thank my wonderful hubby for helping me paint and organize plus he’s the one who put together all the furniture! IKEA stuff is fun but it comes in multiple boxes so you can assemble is at home – there were a lot of boxes!

Have a super fab weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!

YNS Challenge #7

Good Morning!

I can’t believe that YNS Challenge #7 is already here! Actually it’s hard to believe that 2010 is already here! LOL I found this past year went by so quickly especially with a busy little almost 2 year old who keeps me hopping 24/7 well actually he does finally go to bed at 7 pm but there are no naps in his play routine – darn! He does have quiet time with his favorite show which changes weekly and with that said I just have to share with you what happened yesterday…

He decided to break through the child lock we have on the dvd cabinet {which is there because he likes to play with the discs} and he broke his ‘right now’ favorite dvd so to all the mom’s out there yes I had a pity me moment because there was no quiet time yesterday! He’s too young to understand why I couldn’t put the dvd in the machine so he just kept pestering me until I convinced him to throw the case in the trash – out of sight out of mind! That only took me about 3 hours – LOL Hopefully he’ll pick a new favorite show to watch today and not be looking for the one he threw out!

Today is a special day for a friend so I would like to take a moment to wish Jen D. all the best since today is the day she goes into the hospital to deliver her sweet baby boy – good luck Jen! We can’t wait to find out his name!

Now onto YNS Challenge #7 – YAY! Maylee is our fabulous hostess and she has challenged us to use any form of embossing on our card. Check out all the details at the YNS Challenge Blog.

I used Bad Hair Day Fhiona for my card and I made my own background paper using all the cute little stamps that come with this set. I’ve embossed all the little images for some added pop. I also used the new Basic Grey Sugar Rush designer paper and glazed brads which ROCK! Also since my new craft room is finally functioning {I’ll share pics soon} I decided to make this card following Simonne’s super cool sketch from Sketch Saturday as well! It’s always fun to combine challenges!

I hope you join us for YNS Challenge #7!

Hugs
