YNS Challenge #30~ CASE A Member of the YNS DT!

Hello!  It's time for another Your Next Stamp Challenge, and this time the challenge is to CASE a member of the YNS DT:)  For your YNS CASE creations, we would like you to....

1. Choose a YNS DT member
2. Visit their blog
3. Pick one of their creations (past or present - any creation) that inspires you, and...
4. ...CASE it!

You can read the full instructions on the YNS Challenge Blog HERE!  When I saw this challenge, I knew IMMEDIATELY what project I wanted to CASE, and that is this gorgeous creation by the super talented Chris:

EEK, don't you just LOVE it!!!  I just think it is the cutest treat box ever!  Here is my version which is VERY similar to hers:)

Chris and I are also on the Perfect Presentation DT together and I always love what she does with Leigh Ann's templates!  For this project we both used the awesome Tall Gable Template from Perfect Presentation.  This cutie patootie is from the adorable Ellie Loves to Bake set and I used Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather dp.  The gorgeous gingham ribbon is May Arts 1.5" Red Gingham and you can find it HERE at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

I couldn't stop with just one project.  I also had to CASE our fearless leader, Karen.  Check out this ADORABLE creation of hers:

Sooooo sweet!  I've been dying to ink up my Skating Fun Fhiona image and here's what I came up with:

I just changed up the colors and added a snowflake and sentiment:)  Once again I used Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather dp. 

We hope you'll play along with us and we can't wait to see which DT member you decide to CASE!  As always we have two prizes for you to win:

1. Winner – one lucky winner will be chosen by to 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 the YNS DT, 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].

Well, unfortunately I have a pretty sick little girl to take care of today.  We're heading to the doctor bright and early this morning, and hopefully she can get on some antibiotics or something to help her feel better for Thanksgiving dinner.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day:)

That red gingham is so perfect for that homespun/baked good presentation. Your image is so cute and that sentiment of course is the perfect pairing. Fun lil' package.
