Happy Hump Day!! Can't believe we are in the middle of the week already!!   Where does the time go?

Today's creation is for the Your Next Stamp challenge.  This week I am the hostess and had the opportunity to choose the challenge.  I chose the challenge create a bookmark.

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

1. Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog!

2. Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Karen, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [NB You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].

We’d love to see you use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, but if you don’t have one, then you can still join in and be entered into the prize draw! As our challenge runs for 2 whole weeks you have plenty of time to hop on over to the YNS Store and pick up some of these cuties yourself! And if you do use a YNS stamp on your challenge card/creation, you’ll be entered into the prize draw TWICE and be entered into the Top Pick draw – that’s 3 chances to win!

Here is my corner bookmark that I created with Fhiona's Gingerbread House.  I just love this image and I decided it was perfect to go with the book, The Gingerbread Baby for my cousin's daughter for Christmas.

 I colored the image with copics.  The dp is from my new fave Christmas paper-Basic Grey Jovial!! I love these papers together!!  The punches used are both from Martha Stewart (Flower Vine and Fence border).
