Your Next Stamp Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp Blog Hop!!!  We have a whole new line of stamps to show you as well as an adorable new Fhiona set!  Hopefully you came here from Angela's blog, but if not, then start at the beginning which is Karen's blog

For my first card I used this new cutie pie~Fitness Fhiona!  I thought it would be fun to add a pocket to the inside so you could include a gift card to a gym or even a sporting goods store!

This would also go perfectly with an exercise equipment gift such as weights or a treadmill, etc!  Love her!!!  I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #51 for my layout : )

Karen also challenged us to make some sort of gift wrap, or gift box, etc.  I chose to make a little bag:


My daughter is a HUGE horse fanatic.  She loves all animals~especially stuffed~but she also loves the Schleich Horses.  She calls them hard horses : )  I bought her a couple for Christmas and thought this would make a perfect little gift bag for them.  Isn't he CUTE!  This is from the Franfou line and all the images are just soooo adorable!!!  I once again used the 2-5-7-10 box template on SCS.

Last I made a simple card that I think would be perfect for a little pirate lover : )  I used this super fun Parrot from the Franfou line and printed a sentiment for the inside that says Happy Birthday Matey! 

Ok, you know Karen is going to offer some chances for you to win some FREE stuff, so here are the deets:
