Hello! We have another special Blog Hop this month because Your Next Stamp is celebrating its 3rd Birthday!!! We are so excited about this milestone, and we have some fun and ADORABLE projects to share with you today!
We are making this hop even more fun, because we have put together a scavenger hunt! Each DT member and guest has a bold, colored letter on her blog. Collect all the letters and unscramble them to find the special saying. Once you do that, e-mail Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will qualify for the $25 YNS shopping spree GRAND PRIZE!!!
We also have 3 special new release prize packs hidden along the hop. Just leave comments along the way to win!
You have until August 9th at 12 midnight EST to play along and the winners will be announced August 10th on the YNS Blog !
