Borderline Buddies...It's a Zoo here!

Doin' the Happy Dance....for Borderline Buddies Wednesday!
 
Woop Woop!
 
 
One of my favorite days of the week....something about Wednesdays that I love.....
Yes...Borderline Buddies Sharing Day ( along with half way through the week as well)
 
This is the day that my Canadian BFF Leanna and I challenge each other (although it hasn't been much of a challenge being I love stampin' so much)....to create on a certain subject, topic, etc.
 
So...let's see what Leanna has to share this week (I cannot wait)!:
 
 
 
We are still on the retired product/s.....and I have to stand up and say....this was only the second time I inked up this stamp set......Zoo Babies.....OMG...yes...why I haven't I used this stamp set before...it is simply adorbs!
 
Okay, so I got an invitation in the mail to a baby shower....I have to say that I don't seem to have any baby stamps....but remembered this stamp set that I had (soon to retire...so get it!).
 
Zoo Babies.....When wondering what gift I would get (well part of my gift)...I thought back to before my kiddos were born and what would I have wished to have..thinking...thinking....
 
Ahh.....how about a quick and easy scrapbook idea....and yes, Thank You Cards!
Zoo Babies was just what I needed to create with (plus I saw she had elephants and some baby animals on a lot of the items she had on her baby registry).
 
So, here is what I created for her and her hubby and new baby to be:
 
 
I saw an idea that another demo, Patty Bennett created a while back using Project Life and our Hello Baby Boy (we also have Hello Baby Girl too)...and the stamp set Zoo Babies.  So off to Pinterest I go to come up with an idea for the cards.  Perfect Gift idea!  and I will not have to worry about anyone else giving the same gift (which always seems to happen when you go to baby showers, bridal showers, etc.,)  Those registry's never seem to work right!
 
Let's take a closer look...shall we?
 
First off...the Thank You notes....I used our Note Cards and Envelopes to make it super simple....they come with 20 cards and envelopes...voila....no cutting, scoring....I scored there!
 
Then used the Zoo Babies stamp set (retiring) and stuck with the sample color types from the coordinating baby book I created.....as she is having a boy....and focused on using the elephant as there were a lot of "elephant stuff" on her registry.  I stamped right on the note card....and then stamped another elephant and cut out the ear and attached with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I then used our White Perfect Accents using the smallest of the three sizes to over the eye....
 
 
I also used Gorgeous Grunge (the coffee splatter stamp) using the colors Lost Lagoon (retiring), Pool Party, So Saffron and Certainly Celery.
 
The "thanks" was from the Cottage Greetings (not retiring) stamped in Archival Black Ink. 
 
Oh, and I don't think it shows too well but a cute little monkey peeking on the corner of the envelope in Soft Sky. 

 
Hmmm...this picture makes the legs look a little shaded...cool!

 
I then used retiring Pistachio Pudding Lace Ribbon to tie it all together.

Nothing is more fun than seeing baby animals at the zoo. They're so tiny and playful! So it's natural that the Zoo Babies images are almost as cuddly and delightful as the real thing.

Cute?  You Betcha!
 
Come on back tomorrow where I will share the album I created!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

Remarkable Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to the Remarkable 
Blog Hop Sale-A-Bration 
I'm so excited to be a part of this month's blog hop....the theme for this month is the must have's...the cannot live without....even if they are on back order..... from the Occasions Spring Catalog and/or the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
So when I saw this theme, I knew immediately what I had to have the first time I got a glimpse at the Occasions Catalog...I have to say...it was love at first sight....and I had to have them!
Unfortunately attending the On Stage Event in November, 2016, I was hoping I would have won the stamp set....but no worries...it was worth the wait to be able to order from the catalog when demos were able to preorder.....so, what's my pick/s you ask?
Well, they are both posted on the same page in the Occasions Catalog...page 24...
Have you figured it out yet?
It had to be the Beautiful You Stamp Set (item # 143004 W and # 143637 C) and the Watercolor Pencils Iitem # 141709)
Here's a fun card I c…
