There's a party going on this weekend, in case you haven't heard. And, I'm issuing you a PERSONAL AND EXCLUSIVE INVITATION. No, it isn't to celebrate my husband's and my 22nd wedding anniversary (that was yesterday), though you are welcome to congratulate me on that fact. I don't care what anyone says -- staying married that long takes hard work and perseverance (in addition to all the hearts and flowers, etc.)! He's a lucky, lucky man, wouldn't you agree?
But back to that party I was talking about... It's a bash to celebrate Your Next Stamp's 6th Birthday! Yep, it's been six whole years since Karen Dedman launched her sweet little stamp shop, and my how it's grown! In human years, YNS would be starting first grade! You moms out there know how much love and work it takes to nurture a child to age six; Karen's got little ones of her own, and has been rearing them and her awesome company, simultaneously. I don't know how she does it - some days it's all I can do to take a shower, know what I mean?
I'll give you all of the celebratory details WHEN YOU COME VISIT ME TOMORROW (hint, hint... I'm subtle, don't you think?) during the YNS 6th Birthday Blog Hop. There are prizes, discounts, and even an exclusive *FREE* stamp set with qualifying purchase. Believe me when I tell you that you don't want to miss it.
In the meantime, here's a little sneak peek of one of the ADORABLE birthday-themed sets being released this month. It's called PARTY ANIMALS, and the first must-ink image for me is the Daisy-look alike with a spot over his/her eye...
Total cuteness, right? Here's a close-up of the pup, in case you need further convincing (please note the balloon has been fussy-cut and popped up on foam boosters):
Here's a look-see at the entire PARTY ANIMAL set, which of course has a coordinating die set for those of you who like that sort of thing (which I believe is just about everybody):
I know you're anxious as all get out to get previews of all the other new sets, so go to the YNS Blog for a linky list to all of the designers participating in today's peeks. In addition to the awesome YNS Design Team, there are several fabulous guests joining the fun this weekend. Good times!
See you tomorrow!
