Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!


Hello!  Tomorrow night is New Release night at Your Next Stamp!  We are having a release party in the YNS forum on Splitcoaststampers from 8-10pm EST so we hope you'll join us!  It's our first ever SCS party and we are so excited!  After the party, we will have our June New Release Blog Hop so you won't want to miss it! 

I have a little sneak peek for you today using one of the new images called Spring Owl.  I just love this adorable owl and couldn't wait to get her inky!  This is what I looked like yesterday as my hubby and spent the day planting flowers (ok, maybe not.  I was much more dirty and sweaty and didn't have a pretty little hat to wear.)  I paired her with some Echo Park Paper Co. This & That dp.  

Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Blog for more fun sneak peeks, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for the new release party and blog hop!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Monday!
