I love New Release Blog Hops!!!

 Welcome to the Your Next Stamp January New Release Mega Post  BLOG HOP!  We've got some fabulous new YNS stamps to showcase today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favorites.  We also have a wonderful guest joining us for our hop - the amazing Angela Wood, who was our fabulous GDT here at YNS before Christmas!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Wendy's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop .

The hop starts today (07 January 2011 at 03:00 EST) and ends on 10 January 2011 at midnight EST.

As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win!  One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive Heather's Chocolate Lover Collection! Yummy!!!!


 You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop (although we hope you will visit all the blogs on today's hop!).  The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that?  Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop -  you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed.  It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of their new release creations!

Karen is also running some special promotions, so be sure to hop on over to the YNS store once you've finished the hop.  There is a fab clearance section, where you can grab a bargain or two, and Karen has also put together some special-priced bundles!!

So onto my blog hop creation! I have used Happy Dance Stamp and a sketch from MFT:

Here is my card:


I am pretty pleased with how this turned out I got some new ribbon at my local scrap store and knew I was going to use it with this stamp. This ribbon treatment is something new to me I cut 6 pieces at 2 1/2 inches and secure the ends on each. I created two rows with the use of double sided tape and stacked the rows and then used a small strip of dp to cover the frayed edges. Is that about as clear as mud? 

So now it's time for you to hop on over to Jenny's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  I hope you enjoy our new release!
