Bunnies are the Bestest

Eeeks - just realized I never shared this one with you!    One of the pitfalls of starting posts in advance is that you may just forget to go back and hit publish!!!

This card features Your Next Stamp's Bunny on the River and was based on YNS Sketch Challenge #12.   The Stitched Rectangle Dies and Stitched Circle dies were also used.

Tomorrow, I will be back with a card based on sketch #13 and just an FYI...there will be new stamps and dies arriving in the YNS this weekend!

Your Next Stamp is offering another chance to win a free set.    

It is April Feature day which means Thanh is once again challenging us (errr torturing us).   This time around the challenge is to create a non-A2 standard card.   Well, I went with a topper card and although it will fit in a standard envelope it is not the standard shape.

So how do you get entered to win a free set?   Head on over to the YNS blog and check out all the non-standard cards from my teammates, then leave a comment!  Easy Peasy!

Partying On With YNS

Today the party continues at Your Next Stamp!  We are celebrating the April release and today is the DT Dare.

The DT may have to create something for the Dare, but all you need to do is leave a comment on the YNS blog for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice.   Be sure to head on over there for your chance to win.

So what is the DT Dare this month?  We were dared by Thanh to create a feminine card.  The first thing I did was pull out some floral patterned paper and ribbon, then I combined it with the new Stitched Rectangle Dies and Waddles.
