So, onto this fortnight's sketch (#14) which has been designed by Ger:


This fortnight's challenge is being sponsored by one of the newest stamp companies on the block, Your Next Stamp:

Your Next Stamp

If you haven't heard of YNS, then hop on over to their store and their blog to find out about these adorable new stamps. Also Your Next Stamp has just started a Challenge Blog with new challenges set every other Wednesday.

Karen has very generously donated this adorable YNS Shopper Fhiona Stamp Set as the prize for this fortnight's challenge:

And in addition to this wonderful prize, Karen very kindly gave each of the SS&S DT girls a full set of YNS limited edition Halloween digi stamps, available to buy until 31st October by clicking here (NB they are not available in rubber), which we have used on our DT creations - thank you Karen!

Finally, we are pleased to welcome both Karen and Amy (my fellow YNS DT Starlet!) as our challenge guests this fortnight. Karen has used the giraffe stamp from the YNS Wild About You stamp set on her fabulous bag, and Amy has used the YNS Shopper Fhiona Stamp set on her card - the same stamp set you could win! Thank you Karen and Amy for joining us and for sharing your wonderful creations!
