I just wanted to pop by to say Good Morning! The sun is shining here today and I got some stamping time in so I’d say this day has started off just right!
I decided to ink up Bad Hair Day Fhiona which I think I’d like to rename…let’s call her ‘Good Morning Fhiona’. I just adore her little pink slippers and I wish I looked this cute in the morning drinking my cup of coffee. Isn’t she just adorable?

April is here! YAY! That means that ScrapFest is just around the corner, I get to announce our fabulous guest designer and the snow is finally going to melt and Brandon can get his little bike out that he’s been begging to ride for the past few months!
Today I’d like to welcome back Jodi as April Guest Designer! I’m sure you will adore her wonderful creations!
Here is some info in her own words plus an adorable card featuring Yippee Fhiona!
Hi there, my name is Jodi and I am so happy to be back as a Guest Designer for Your Next Stamp.

It’s Diana here, and I am taking over the blog today. I wanted to share a card I created this past week using the Daydream Fhiona clear set. The Bee is an accessory stamp that comes with the set shown below, but I felt he deserved his own card.
This is one of my new favorite things to do. I like to utilize the accessory stamps in all my sets. This Bee was so adorable and perfect for that. I used SC324 for the Sketch and I added some bling, buttons and Twine to make it fun.
Just a few reminders.
We have great sale going on over at the YNS Store, with some stamps set marked 50% off. Bring your extra large shopping carts, because there are TONS of sets on Sale.
We also have a current YNS Challenge occurring now. Stitch it up (Faux or real stitching). Come join in on all the fun. Click on the Challenge link to see all the inspiration and the cards that our lovely team of ladies her at YNS have created.

Hello! I’ve been dying to make a card using these ADORABLE Your Next Stamp images Lovin’ From the Oven and Ellie Loves to Bake. Don’t they work perfectly together!?! Sooooo super CUTE! I played along with the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #100 and used some dp by October Afternoon Modern Homemaker.
I didn’t really have time to make a box or a bag for my cookies, so I pulled out one of these fabulous Blue Lunch Bags from the Etsy Shop It’s In the Bag! The sentiment comes from the Your Next Stamp setElegant Greetings.
I hope you like my gift set! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday!

Good morning everyone, it’s Dana here with you today. Whew we made it through another week. I can’t wait to get my weekend started. I plan to get out in my garden this weekend and plant some hot peppers, tomatoes and herbs. I just love this time of year where you see all natures beauty come alive.
To get me in the mood I choose to color up Digger to get started. Isn’t he just the cutest little mole? He just makes me happy with his little hat and shovel. Too cute! Why don’t you stop by the YSN store pick up Digger to get you in the digging mood? Also don’t forget you still have time to participate in the Make It Sparkle challenge over at the YNS Challenge Blog. Challenge ends MIDNIGHT (EST) March 29.

WOW! That about sums up how I feel about all your wonderful comments on my Surprise Giveaway!
Thank you so much for joining in the fun and for spreading the word to all your friends! I will definitely do more surprise giveaways so be sure to check back often for daily inspiration and loads of YNS FUN!
Before I announce the winner I’d like to share a card I made using Shirley Temple Ellie which by the way just happens to be on sale right now! I just adore this sweet stamp and really wanted to make a card for the YNS Make it Sparkle challenge! Many of you know that my little addiction, besides stamping, is bling so I’ve added some yummy glittered skittles to my card as well as some purple shimmer cardstock and some ribbon with glittered edges.
Alrighty, now on with the announcement of the winner of my YNS Surprise Giveaway!!!
