Your Next Stamp's 2nd Birthday Blog Hop

It's time to PARRR-TAAAAY!!!!  
 
Welcome to YNS' 2nd Birthday Blog Hop, we are so happy you are here celebrating with us!  If you have just stopped by my blog to say "hi" and want to join in all the fun and games you can go to the start at Peggy's blog.  If you have been hopping along and are arriving from Crystal's blog then you are right where you need to be!  If you get lost along the way visit the YNS blog for a complete list of participants and all the details.

What is a birthday party without games and some AMAZING prizes? Well we have a fun little puzzle for you to solve along the hop and when you do you will be entered into the draw for one of TWO amazing YNS prizes!  Not everyone has a puzzle piece so you need to pay attention, and click on the puzzle pieces, following the directions as you find them along the way. [3rd party cookies must be enabled to do the puzzle] When you are done put them all together at the end of the hop for your chance to win!  You have until Monday, August 15th at Midnight EST.

Now on to the new stamps...oooo, new stamps, don't you just love new stamps??? I am so lucky to be one of the guest designers this month.  My first 2 cards are made with the new goodies that I got to play with, "Seasonal Icons Set Two", which is a set of 4 summer images and sentiments.  This set is among the new stamps being released today.
I kept it CAS, but colorful, with some fussy cutting and dimensionals.
My Second Card was inspired by this one by Emily Leiphart.  Emily lined up a bunch of shoes in a row and I loved the look so I decided to line up the flip flops with some overlapping and color away the flowers.
(This card is for Wee Memories Challenge #63 - Dare to Color)
Finally, what is a Birthday party without a Birthday card?  Here is one of my favorite YNS images, Snorkel Fun Penguin holding up a B-day flag - I was thinking that he looks a little scared about snorkeling and the flag reminds me of an SOS of sorts!
(This card is based on the August 2011 SFYTT)

  7. I am a HUGE fan of clean and simple! Your cards are so so so so so so great! I love the other cards so far on this hop too because I don't layer very well with such bright colors, but I still love the simplicity of white. I think it really lets the images pop. Thanks for sharing these!
