Christmas in July Borderline Buddies Challenge

Welcome to Borderline Buddies Wednesday
I feel like I'm late in posting....well....posting on Tuesday evening to post on Wednesday morning is late for me....just got notification from Leanna what this week's challenge was....and although I had a project already created.....I had to do the official I'm glad I already had something to tonight I feel so tired.....Tuesday Tiredness I guess....
After work today I was itching to head on over to Dollar Tree and Tuesday Morning and I had to stop at the bank....and because I didn't sleep well last night.....I feel like my tank is running on I think I'll be posting this and then heading to bed....such a sad life I have?  right!
Anyhow.....Leanna's idea for this week was Christmas in July!  Woo Hoo and Yippee!
Let's see what she has to share.... turn....
If you don't already know...I so love Paper Pumpkin..and I was inspired to create this card after seeing another card, here is my rendition.
The Paper Pumpkin Kit is basically made to create these fun boxes...
I think it is a super fun kit.....but here's one of the "out of the box" projects I came up with
I used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder (item #139672) on Crumb Cake Cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  I then lightly went direct to paper on the embossed image with the Whisper White Craft Pad and then allowed it to dry.  Our craft ink is a pigment ink and the pad is much different than our foam pads and they are very wet and juicy so you have to take care when doing this. 
Did you know you can also emboss with our Whisper White Craft Pad?  You can!  It's a pigment ink so it takes a big longer to dry...just sprinkle on your clear embossing powder and use a heat tool to set's so much fun to emboss...oh...sorry....where was I?  :-)

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and tore it and adhered it to the bottom layering two pieces.  I then trimmed out a section of the box from the kit to create the tree.  I then used a scrap of Chocolate Chip and cut a small piece to use as the tree trunk and then tucked the trees into the "snow" along the bottom. 

I used some dimensionals to give the trees some height...tied on the Emerald Envy Thick Baker's twine along with the tag and stamped using Emerald Envy (all included in the kit) and adhered it to the Emerald Envy cardstock base. 

I think it turned out super cute...don't you?
If you are not yet a member of Paper Pumpkin, now is the time to give it a try.  I absolutely love receiving the kits right to my doorstep each and every Christmas each and every month!

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 to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left 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

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!
