Happy Hump Day everyone!! I can't believe it is the middle of the week already again!  Wow! Time Flies! is time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp
.  We had such a great time viewing all the "Grow your own flowers Creations!!".  This week's hostess is the fabulously talented and sweet Beth.  Beth's YNS challenge is "Nicely negative" which means to use a white on darker cardstock.  You can emboss white on any darker colored base or just stamp using white ink.  While it is not required to use a YNS challenge for the challenge, we would love to see them if you have them and you may only enter one NON YNS creation per challenge.  You can link your creations here. This challenge lasts two weeks.

Here is my take on this week's challenge:

For my creation I embossed white ink on the sweet gingerbread man from the adorable Your Next Stamp Holiday Cookies stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Merry Mouse Candy stamp set. I cut out the gingerbread man and popped him up on a Swiss Dot embossed background cut out with Labels 14 from spellbinders.  The bag is created with the Stampin Up Bag it sizzix die.  It just makes such a fun treat bag doesn't it.  The dp is the new Candy cane paper from the Stampin UP Holiday mini. The ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

I know I posted this on Monday, but I don't want anyone to miss this opportunity if they plan on attending Scrapfest this year.

Your Next Stamp will be at ScrapFest Oshawa 2010 (Canada) this weekend (15-16 October).  To celebrate, Karen is offering a 10% discount voucher for those attending the show!  Simply print out this voucher and present it at the YNS Booth to receive 10% off your purchase of YNS stamps!
The Your Next Stamp DT also has a very special blog hop planned for this coming Friday (October 15th) where we will be showcasing a VERY special stamp!  The stamp will only be available for a very limited time and will be at an amazing price with free shipping to boot, but we can't tell you anymore than that right now as it's top secret!  So be sure to pop back here on Friday to hop along with us, see this extra special stamp, and be in with a chance to own it yourself! Any crafter who isn't able to grab this stamp will definitely be disappointed.  As I said, it's only going to be available to buy from the YNS store from Friday and for a VERY limited time and I'm positive you'll kick yourself if you miss it!
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!! I so appreciate you all!
