Your Next Stamp Challenge~Bookmark It and Some Exciting News!!!


Hello!  We have a new Your Next Stamp Challenge for you today, and this time the super sweet and talented Chris has challenged us to make a bookmark!  I decided to use this adorable image from the YNS set Space Boy.  Here is a close up:


My daughter is in Kindergarten this year, and is just learning how to read.  She is doing soooooo well!!!  One of her assignments is to write down how many minutes of reading she does each day, and to write down the book titles as she completes each book.  I think it would be so fun to make a bookmark for each of her classmates!  Although, I was really excited about showing her this one, and she said  "But mom, I already have a bookmark."  Her bookmark is strip of printer paper that says reading is fun.  There are no astromauts or sparkly stars or stitching or distressing or fun ribbon or dimension on her bookmark, and her mom didn't make it just for her!  Oh well.  Maybe the other kids in her class would like it:)
 
We hope you'll play along with us and as always we have not one, but two fabulous prizes for you to win!

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by random.org, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!


2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Chris, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [NB You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

Onto my exciting news!  I was invited to be a full fledged DT member for Really Reasonable Ribbon!!!!  I am sooooo excited and I just LOVE RRR!  Thank you so much for the opportunity, Bonnie! 

Beginning in November I will be posting on the RRR Blog every Saturday:)  If you haven't joined the RRR blog, you really should, because we have daily postings and awesome tutorials showing different ways to use ribbon!



That's it for me:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Kerri
