Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop and Challenge #11!!!

Hello!  Welcome to the Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!  Hopefully you came here from Angela's Blog, but if not, start at the beginning which is Karen's blog!  We are also incorporating YNS Challenge #11 which is to use a BIG BOW!

Your Next Stamp has some new images that are perfect for Mother's Day and Easter!  I made a gift set for my mom using Flower Bouquet Fhiona:

Isn't she soooo SWEET!!!  My mom's favorite color is yellow, so I thought this dp from Making Memories was perfect : ) 

For my card, I colored Fhiona with Copics and cut her out with Circle and Blossom Nestabilities.  The flowers were punched with my EK Success Flower Punches~LOVE those things~and the ribbon is PTI Berry Sorbet. 

The box is a template from Leigh Ann Baird (Perfect Presentation) called Hey Cupcake!  I added the sentiment also from the Flower Bouquet Fhiona set, and a big bloom that I cut with a Sizzix Bigz Die~Build a Flower #2.  I'm not going to tell you what's going to go inside this box, because my mom will probably read this post ;) 

I know you want to win some prizes!!!  To be eligible, just leave a comment on all the Starlets blogs, then link your name to Mr. Linky at the end of the hop.  You'll have a second chance to win if you play along with this week's challenge~to use a big bow~and a third chance to win if you use YNS stamps!!! 

There is also a Mystery Prize hidden along the way, but we don't know where....

Now hop on over to Lana's fabulous blog, and enjoy the rest of the hop!!!
