Borderline Buddies & Succulents

Welcome to another Wednesday of Borderline Buddies.

I hope you have had a great week so far...Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week (well next to Friday/Saturday/Sunday)   So...what is your favorite day of the week?

I love Wednesday not only because it is the halfway through the work week, but also Borderline Buddies.  It's hard to believe each week that Wednesdays seem to come along so quickly! (well sometimes)...and sometimes it seems like forever...but when life is busy...
each and every day goes by so quickly....

So Leanna and I are still creating with new products...just seems like it keeps on coming and coming.....these new products.....and so many fun stamping projects to create...I never seem to have enough time to do all the stamping which I want to.

So...let's head on up to Canada and see what Leanna has been creating this week.

Now...My turn!

How about a step away from winter for just a little bit and step into a garden.....

Now garden is fill with Succulents!

Yes...but the best part....these succulents don't ever die....they don't dry up...they aren't even overwatered.....they are paper creations! 

Even if you have a black thumb or a green can create these succulents and never worry about them drying up and dying...and that's the best part of it.

I use to have a green thumb....but no worries now.....they last as long as I want them to!

I actually used the Vertical Garden Project Kit (item # 143635) but didn't use the tray to decorate.

I had this flower pot in my stampin' space....and used some "fluff"
inside the pot and hot glue to apply.

To add some "dimension" to the succulents, I used the Timeless Texture Stamp Set along with our Stampin' Sponges and various colors to give it a dimension look. 

You can just assemble the kit and attach to the décor kit which hangs on to the wall...but you can do much more to it....all sorts of variety of projects. 

If you really want to create your own succulents, you may want to look at the Oh So Succulent Bundle (Item # 145184) which includes the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set and the Succulent Framelits Dies...and save 10% as well.  If you purchase this bundle, you may want to add a package of our Stampin' Sponges to help add dimension to the succulents and then get a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item as well...woo hoo!
