Welcome to the Your Next Stamp CHA Release BLOG HOP!

We are so excited here at YNS because Karen has taken YNS to CHA for the very first time! That's right, as you're reading this Karen will be at Winter 2011 CHA at booth #4518! WOO-HOO!!

So to celebrate this event, YNS is releasing some fab new YNS stamps just in time for CHA. You may have already caught a sneak peek of some of them last week over at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, but today you get to see all 9 World Kids stamps plus a fabulous new Celebrate Collection from HR Designs and 7 new mini stamps.

These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favorites.

Of course we couldn't let this release pass by without having a fun blog hop! We also have 4 fabulous guests joining us for our hop - the amazing Tori Wild, Cindy Haffner, Carole Burrage and Maylee Pham!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Beth's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at Kerri's blog, as you don't want to miss these fab new releases!

The hop starts today (28 January 2011 at 08:00 EST) and ends on 2 February 2011 at midnight EST.

As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win! One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive their choice of 3 of the new World Kids stamps!

You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop (although we hope you will visit all the blogs on today's hop!). The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that? Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop - you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed. It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of their new release creations!

Karen is also running some special bundle promotions, so be sure to hop on over to the YNS store once you've finished the hop. If you order all 9 World Kids stamps in one bundle, you will save 15% over the cost of buying them individually!

So onto my blog hop creation! I have used India, Scottish, Dutch, Alaska, Irish and Japan  stamps to make a banner. Each oval is cut out with the Beaded oval Nestability for the frame and the oval for the inside.  Each is embossed with a different embossing folder from Provocraft.  The sentiment is typed on my PC.  Please bear with me on all my photos .....

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Hodge Podge Shop – white on white, color allowed in image and as accent
Stampin' B's - song as your inspiration- We Are the World...We are the Children
Penny's Paper-Crafty (2nd week) – anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters (2 weeks) - anything goes
Challenge Up Your Life (2nd week) - clean & simple
Sugar Creek Hollow (3 entries) - Black and white with a splash of colour

Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Cindy Haffner {Guest DT}
Maylee Pham {Guest DT}
Tori Wild {Guest DT}
Carole Burrage {Guest DT}

So now it's time for you to hop on over to the talented Cindy Haffner's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! I hope you enjoy our new release!
