Your Next Stamp Hop...

It's finally here the wait is over!  For the big reveal we have decided to do something a bit different this time around and combine the Blog Hop with the next YNS Challenge! The theme is big bows! I know this should be a well loved challenge because ribbon and bows are"big" right now.  


 Karen sent me a fantastic set called Your Fabulous as soon as I saw this rubber my mind went racing! Mothers Day will be here before we know it so I created a card  and matching container with my mom in mind! (Hi Mom!)



I am no bow wizard so my big bow consisted of hot gluing multiple loops together that may seem like a cheaters way but I like the end result! I wanted my fabulous lady's skirt to match that fun bag affixed to the bow so I cut out the center flower of my stamp in order to adorn her skirt. Never fear that little flower pops right back into place stamping perfectly every time! Well I hope you enjoyed your visit and below I posted the order of the hop in case you just happened along:

We will NOT have the usual 'Winner' and 'Top Pick' prizes for this challenge.  Instead, we will have one grand 'hop' prize for this challenge. You will need to show us you've completed the hop by leaving comments on all the Starlets' blogs.  When you get to the end of the hop (the YNS Challenge blog), you will need to leave your name and blog URL in Mr Linky to giving you one entry into the prize draw.  If you play along with the challenge you can add a 2nd link into Mr Linky which should directly link to your challenge entry card.  If you play along with the challenge AND use a YNS stamp, then you can have a 3rd entry into the grand prize draw.
Mystery Prize: In addition to the Grand Prize, we are also going to have a mystery prize.  The winner of the mystery prize will be randomly chosen from the comments on one of the Starlet's blog hop/challenge posts.  We don't know what the prize is or which Starlet's blog the winning comment will be chosen from.  So to be in with a chance of winning, you will need to comment at every stop along the hop. 
Well thanks for stopping by and be sure to head on over to YNS Challenges which is your final destination! Have a great day and I look forward to seeing how big you can make a bow! Beth
