Your Next Stamp Challenge 3

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Wow, it's November already!! At Your Next Stamp, Simonne is challenging all of us to make a Christmas card or creation ...WITHOUT the colors red and green!

There are lots of non-traditional Christmas papers out there, so I'm sure you won't have any trouble resisting the urge to get out your green and red pens! In fact, over at Your Next Stamp, Karen has a whole host of Christmas crafty stash, including paper, card, buttons, brads, baubles, stamps (of course!), etc. View the complete range by clicking here.

As always, we have 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:

1. The challenge hostess, Simonne will choose her favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge Winner blinkie to proudly display on their blog.

2. We will randomly-choose one challenge entry to receive a YNS stamp set.

You must use a YNS stamp on your card or creation. Karen has launched some great new limited edition Christmas digi stamps, which you can buy instantly from the YNS store by clicking here I used this adorable Fhiona stamp for my card. I kept the design very simple and let my image be the focal point. I used some glttery snowflake paper by The Paper Studio, from my stash. I cut my image out using my nesties and I colored her with my copics. I colored in some ice underneath her and used Gossy Accents to make it shiny. I cut out my sentiment and colored over the words with my copics. Simple but fun!

To enter, follow the challenge and use a YNS stamp somewhere on your creation, post it on your blog or in your online gallery, and post the direct link to it using the Mr Linky widget on the challenge post. (Please do not post a general link to your blog or gallery, as this makes it more difficult for us to find your card - thanks!). If Mr Linky is not working, please post your link in the comments section on the blog post, and we will add it for you when the widget is back up and working. If you are posting your card to your SCS gallery, please use the keyword ynsc3 and then post a direct link to it in Mr Linky. Entries for challenge 3 close at midnight (EST) on Tuesday November 17th. So get out those non-tradional Christmas papers and get busy! You might be our lucky winner!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. It means so much that you take time to stop and visit. Please leave me a comment so i know you were here! I'm still trying to play catch up with my blog hopping, so please be patient with me. I'll be around to visit you in the next few days.
