Happy Halloween!!!



Happy Halloween Everyone!

The card posted today is the card I made for my card mingle buddy Cabio! I didn't get a chance to take a picture before mailing it so she was kind enough to send me a picture so I could share it with all of you - thanks Cabio!

I used Happy Halloween Fhiona and the fun designer paper is the MME - Boo To You!

Today is the last day to get YNS Halloween Limited Edition Digital Stamps - you can check them out HERE.

Also every month I draw a winner for a stamp set from my followers list and this coming Monday is the November draw so be sure to add yourself as a follower if you haven't already. I would like to take this moment to say how much I appreciate everyone and all your comments - thank you so much!

You still have time to join in on the YNS Challenge #2 - shape cards!

Also YNS is also the proud sponsor of the Sunday Sketch and Stamp which runs until Saturday November 7th so join in on the fun for your chance to win the Shopper Fhiona stamp set.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Miami was a blast!

Well Chris, myself and 8 of our friends survived the Miami heat and had a fabulous time! We are now back in the cool Ontario weather and I'm ok with that because even though I had a ton of fun I missed my son and all my craft stuff! It's good to be home :)

We had a really fun evening out in South Beach, shopped at the Aventura Mall - it's HUGE, enjoyed lots of beach time along with a Miami Dolphins football game!
As promised I have a few pictures to share with you and hope to have some more once our friends share theirs with us.

view from our hotel room


Chris and I at the Dolphins Game - FUN!!
Dolphins Stadium - Player Intros

I'll be back on Halloween with a fun card to share with you!

Sunday Sketch and Stamp Sponsor!!!


Today Your Next Stamp is the proud sponsor of Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #14 - YAY! You can check out all the details about their challenges and join in on the fun HERE!

The sketch was a ton of fun to work with and after playing with different options I decided to make mine into a birthday bag since today is my 33rd birthday!!!



I've used the adorable little giraffe from the Wild About You stamp set and the background star image is from the Birthday Boy stamp set. I stamped it in a very pale pink so it's hard to see in the picture but you should be able to click on the picture to make it bigger so you can see it better. I couldn't wait to put on some of that pink jungle satin ribbon that I bought awhile back and just knew I would have the perfect use for it one day! All the edges are distressed as well and then I added some pink pearls to finish it off. I was in a total pink mood and I love the way it turned out!

Remember we are also sponsoring the EtsyInspired Challenge this week and YNS Challenge #2 is going on right now as well!

I hope you choose to join in all the fun challenges! I really find they inspire me to step out of my creative comfort zone and I'm always amazed with the different creations I come up with from all the great inspiration!

I'm enjoying some birthday vacation time right now in Miami Beach so check back for some fun pictures soon!

Have a Fabulous Day!

EtsyInspired Challenge Sponsor!!!


Today Your Next Stamp is the proud sponsor of the EtsyInspired Challenge #59. The EtsyInspired DT chooses an Etsy store each week for card making inspiration! I think this is such a great idea! You can check out all the details about their challenges and join in the fun HERE.

Challenge #59 store is The Little Red Door

They have such cute little ceramic houses! I looked through the shop and I was totally inspired by this little blue and brown house which they call a choco-berry house to brighten your day - too cute!!!


Here is my card I made with all my choco-berry inspiration...



I used Home Sweet Home and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the HB mermaid set along with some yummy chocolate satin ribbon and pearls along the bottom. I was so pleased with how my little blue home turned out!
.

I hope it brightens your day.

See you tomorrow with another super cool challenge!

Happy 'Secret Surprise' Friday!


October 31st is sneaking up on us and I have to admit that I love Halloween!!! I especially enjoy Halloween now that we have a child to enjoy all the excitement with which brings me back to when I was a kid. I remember this one house in my neighbourhood growing up that would set up a really spooky yet fun Halloween scene every year. We would all run away screaming once we heard their creepy music playing but we always came running back for more! My favorite part was having to walk to plank for my candy! That was so COOL! I hope there are fun things like that around here for Brandon - he would just love that!

While in the fun Halloween spirit I've been playing with our new limited edition digital stamps which you can check out HERE. They are only available until October 31st so hop on over and get yours today!

I used the Cute Kitty for my card and I must say I love how it turned out! I crimped the ribbon for a fun look and put a MME Boo To You! brad in the center and colored the kitty in with Copics. The designer paper is MME Boo To You! as well and of course I've added my favorite baubles!

I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog and as a fun Friday surprise I will enter your name into a draw for a secret surprise package if you leave a comment on this post and it gets even better because I'll enter your name twice if you tell me a fun Halloween story!

I'll draw the winner's name and post it on my blog Tuesday so you have until Monday at midnight to comment.

Have a great weekend and I'll be back Tuesday!

Hugs

The theme for the challenge is 'Character Counts' - you need to use a well known cartoon character somewhere on your card or creation :)

Hello! My name is Kerri Michaud and I’m a stay at home mom to 3 kiddos ages 7, 5, and 2! We currently live in Apopka, Florida which is just outside of Orlando. I got into stamping about 2 years ago after I had my first Stampin’ Up party. I was instantly hooked LOL! Before then I had dabbled in scrapbooking, crocheting, sewing, quilting, jewelry making, and whatever other crafty whims that came my way. I think I have found my true passion in stamping and card making though! I also LOVE to make altered items and little gift boxes, etc. I am soooo excited and honored to be part of the Senior DT for Your Next Stamp! I ADORE these darling images and just love working with Karen and the rest of the DT!

My name is Angel and I’ve been stamping for over 8 years! I also scrapbook from time to time, but prefer making cards or other little projects. I try to escape to my craft room as often as my 3 boys (ages 16, 12 and 10) and all of their extra activities allow! My husband of 19 years, Derek, is supportive of my crafty time because he knows it makes me happy. I also work full time with a wealth management company and am a licensed life and health insurance agent. I’m so excited to be working with Karen and ALL of the YNS crew!

I am also going through a second generation of crafting, i have a scrapbook that is almost 60yrs old filled with all of my favorite memories. I've been featured in Stamper's Sampler..more of an artsy card magazine...but my style tends to be "cute". Card crafting isn't the only thing i like to do, if i am not working on cards, you'd see me working at my sewing machine, crocheting or trying any new craft technique out there.. i love a challenge..which brings me to say..i can't wait to see what you all create for the YNS challenges!

I am originally from California but currently live in Tennessee. I keep pretty busy just on the home-front with my active boys playing different sports, moving every few years, and volunteering with the Army. But in the little "me" time I do get, I love to do anything crafty and hide in my craft room!! I started out 11 years ago designing and creating jewelry for 2 large retailers, which led me to having my own business; until 8 years ago when I met designer paper and glue. A new love relation began! I am so excited to be part of the YNS team and work alongside so many talented ladies!

Jen Roach
Designer

Jen Roach <br>Designer
My name is Jennifer and I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and 3 year old daughter. I'm a scientist by day and a paper crafter by night ---or really just about any free time I have including my lunch breaks at work!!

I started out in paper crafting back in about 2002 when my Mom and I took a scrapbooking class together. A few years later I decided to give card making a try and it's been my passion ever since. I'm the world's slowest scrapbooker so the instant gratification of card making really won me over. Over the years I have used more and more stamping in my designs and I love learning and trying new techniques and styles.

I would probably define myself as a "scrappy stamper". I *LOVE* patterned paper and most of my cards have lots of it with added layered on embellishments and textures. My cards may not be easy to mail but boy are they pretty!!

Other than crafting, I love to play tennis as you can probably tell from my blog address: http://tennisgirl27.blogspot.com/

Julie Elak
Designer

Julie Elak <br>Designer
Hi, I am Julie Elak, aka "The Last Minute Crafter". My days are kept busy working full time and running after my children. I use almost every free minute to craft, my purse is typically full of copics and a pari of scissors. I began stamping well over 10 years ago, but my love for paper crafting found renewed energy once I discovered the online community in 2009. I started a blog on a whim and am so happy I did. I have made many friendships and found so much support and encouragement on-line.

Laura Nehring
Designer

Laura Nehring <br>Designer
My name is Laura, and I am SO excited and honored to be joining the Your Next Stamp Team! I am a former preschool/kindergarten teacher, now stay at home mom to 3 energetic kiddos - 5 year old twin girls, and a 4 year old boy. I met my husband the year I graduated from highschool, and we've been together ever since. We are enjoying life in sunny southern California, where we were both born and raised.

I started scrapbooking in 2006 when I was pregnant with my girls, which led me to stamping and cardmaking a few years later. The point of no return was when I purchased my first Copic marker at a local scrapbook expo 2 years ago... now I'm hooked! I LOVE to color, and it's how I unwind at the end of a busy day! My card making style is fairly clean and simple... I like for the images to be the focus of my creations, so I don't do a lot of embellishing. In addition to Copics, I am also completely obsessed with Kraft Cardstock, and polka dots! I am really looking forward to being a part the YNS team!

Nicole Nastali
Designer

Nicole Nastali <br>Designer
Hi! I’m a former kindergarten teacher who is now a stay at home mom to my 2 little girls. My hubby is supportive of all my crafty pursuits and that says a lot about him because I love all kinds of crafts from making headbands, bows, & designing dresses to making party favors and now cards!! I am a newcomer on the stamping scene and have met so many wonderful crafting friends already thanks to the common joy of card making and coloring with Copic markers. I would color all day long if my family would let me…!! Lol! My favorite colors are the blue greens (affectionately called the BG’s) and I try to sneak them into every card I make!! I love to get crafty with my girls (ages 8 & 6) and let them color images right along side me. It’s a fun hobby for us all to share!! A sleepover stamp from YNS was one of my very first stamp purchases & I’ve been in love with Fhiona & friends ever since!! I’m thrilled to be joining the YNS Team with this group of fabulously talented ladies & I can’t wait to share my cards with you!!

Ruza Rebel <br>Designer
I'm a former Administrative Assistant turned stay-at-home mom to a very special young lady. I've been crafting since I was a young child, and when I became a SAHM I turned to crafting to stay busy. Staying busy making cards, altering items, and just having fun with paper is an amazing hobby that I truly fell in love with. I'm very grateful that I have a husband that supports me, that my son loves seeing my creations as well, and my special young lady enjoys getting into my crafts. I truly love the challenge of making something beautiful with the various products available to the crafting industry. That is why I am super excited to share my projects featuring the amazing YNS Digital Stamps, and I look forward to seeing your creations as well!

Sheila Veitch
Designer

Sheila Veitch <br>Designer
I was borne and grew up in a small town Canada. I started paper crafting in the fall of 2007, when I saw a stamping catalogue one of my friends had laying around her home. I took one look through the catalogue and was so excited because I knew I had found my favorite hobby at last! Making Cards. I’m a natural born artist, I completed a graphic arts program in college and worked as an artist for several years a life time ago. I currently work as an office administrator in Toronto where I live with my dog Georgie. Though I absolutely love my job, this hobby is my creative outlet. I believe, the cards I make are like little works of art, expressed from the heart. I find that when I’m making a card for a specific person, I am thinking about that person through the whole process. And that in itself can be the gift.
