Borderline Buddies Christmas

It's Time for another Borderline Buddies Day...
I cannot believe how quick these days are going by....like it was just Wednesday....wasn't it?
So Leanna wondered what we should create this week.....of course.....Christmas!
Let's see what Leanna has to share this week.
http://stampingwithleanna.com/
Now.... me, still being in the pink/grey scheme....outside of the traditional colors...
I used the Tin of Tags stamp set using the colors Blushing Bride and Basic Grey

A few circles....along with some Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.

The white background paper I used was Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper Item #142014 but I used it on the debossed side....and surprisingly....it worked out fine stamping on it...something that I didn't think would...would probably have more issues stamping on the embossed side...

I hope you have enjoyed my card today!
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
Glimmer Hugs!

Tin of Tags, Washi Tape and Cookie Cutter Christmas

It's been super busy here....I had a nice long Thanksgiving weekend....and it's back to work for me!  Boo!  I had so much fun over this holiday weekend.....seems like Thanksgiving was so long ago! I spent a lot of my time preparing for the upcoming Christmas Holiday along with my annual Cookie Exchange..... I'm still trying to chose a cookie that I'm going to create...any ideas?  Anyone?  lol So, I'm in the Christmas mood and Christmas spirit?  How about you? Have you created your cards yet?  Decided which cookies you will be baking? How about shopping?  I'm hoping you took advantage of our online sale this past week...what a great way to get some great products at a discount for your crafty friends. I thought I would do some crafting "outside of the box".... outside of the traditional colors. I thought this was a fun card....I used the Tin of Tags Stamp Set Item # 142180 ...along with the Washi Tape, Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape Item # 14165…

Sharing Some Swaps from On Stage

Thanks for stopping in today. A few weeks back I attended a Stampin' Up! event in New Jersey called On Stage... I thought I would share with you today some of the swaps which I received.  I thought you would enjoy them too.....So here goes.... This card came with a coordinating envelope too.
I also love the simplicity of this card as well. 
And a few more....If I were ill, I'd be happy to receive a card like this... And who doesn't love flowers?
I hope you enjoyed my swaps...I have a few more which I'll be sharing. Have a SUper Stampin' Day! Glimmer Hugs! Susan

Happy Friday....The Biggest Shopping Day Ever

Hello  .... Happy Black Friday! This is the biggest shopping day of the year here in the US... The day after Thanksgiving...that's when people get into the shopping mode for Christmas.  I am already into the decorating mode...I usually start my decorating today.....but we had some snow in our area on Saturday/Sunday and I have to say that got me into the mood for decorating....now my home is usually decorated each and every room....and it makes me so happy to do this. I also have a yearly Christmas Cookie Exchange every year.....so that pushes me to decorate early...It usually makes me so sad when the holidays are over and I have to take it all down for another year...so I try to enjoy it as much as I can...How about you?  Are there any traditions you do with your family?  I'd love to hear.....so..to get you into the holiday spirit....how about some tags? Aren't these cute?  I cannot seem to get enough out of this Cookie Cutter Christmas and Candy Cane Lane Designer Seri…

Happy Thanksgiving!

To all my customers, family, friends and everyone...... May you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving! My love to you all!

Borderline Buddies Wednesday!

It's another Borderline Buddies Week....and the Online Sales Continues So being that Leanna was having snow in Canada and we here in the Northeastern Part of Pennsylvania had snow, I thought it only fitting that we celebrate this week with a snowman....when one is given snow.....make snowmen! Let's see what Leanna has to share this week... http://stampingwithleanna.com/ And now...my turn.... I've seen many creations using the SwirlyScribbles Thinlits Dies # 141497 I created the hat using Basic Black Cardstock. The background paper used was the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper Item #142014 which is currently on the Online Extravaganza Sale  I also used the Sponge Brayers Item # 141714 and Marina Mist Classic Ink to color the paper.
I also added the Metallic Enamel Shapes Item #141678 to the background.  The saying came from the Snow Place Stamp Set Item #139738.
How fun is this card?  So simple.....and cute...I think... Hope you enjoyed our project this week! T…
