Happy Birthday to You ...

***3rd posting today scroll down for more 
Today is a very special day as Your Next Stamp is celebrating its very 1st birthday with a Birthday Blog Hop!
The YNS Starlets are being joined by some fabulous friends for this Hop, and together we are showcasing some fantastic new release stamps as well as some firm favourites!  These new stamps are available to buy from today from Your Next Stamp, along with all your YNS favourites.
If you'd like to participate in the Hop and you didn't arrive here from Cabio's  blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at Karen's blog, as I'm sure you don't want to miss out on all the fun we have for you today!
The Hop starts today (Thursday, August 5th at 08:00 EST) and ends on Wednesday August 11th at midnight (EST).
We have not one but two grand prizes for you to win - two lucky winners will be drawn at random to each receive a $25 gift certificate to spend on YNS stamps!  WOW!  As the prize is so fantastic, we are going to make you work a little to enter, LOL!  Each Starlet and Guest Starlet have a letter hiding in their blog post.  All you need to do is gather these letters, rearrange them to form a 3-word phrase, and then email this phrase to Karen.  All correct entries will be entered into the grand prize draw.  So make sure you Hop around every blog and remember to leave a comment at every stop too.
My secret letter is .... I know you know it already but yes, it's H
All that cake must have affected Karen as she has gone a little crazy and is holding a 20% off sale for the duration of the Hop - the crazy part is that everything will be reduced by 20%, including items already on sale!  I'm not sure when (or even if!) this will happen again, so make sure you hop on over to the YNS store once you've completed the Hop and fill your basket!
I have used the Star Cuties stamp for my blog Hop creation .....  


  I also pulled out the stars from Yippee Fhiona Set and the Birthday sentiment from Fhiona and Her Pony Maggie
So now it's time for you to Hop on over to Cindy's  blog as she is the next stop on our Hop, but don't forget to grab my hidden letter first and also leave me a comment!
Thanks so much for Hopping with us today!  I hope you enjoy our birthday celebrations and new stamps! Beth
