Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend!! I know I sure did.  Not much stamping but it was a nice break just enjoying the family, getting things done around the house and enjoying the GORGEOUS weather.  I even had a chance to go for a bide rid with the girls. it is time for Stamp and Create's Product spotlight.  This week's spotlight is the Wee Ones from Wags n Whiskers.  All stamps in this Wee Ones line will be 25% off this week!!!

For my card I chose to use the Best Friend's Forever stamp and create a Christmas card.  The designer paper is Basic Grey Jovial.  I also used red silk ribbon from May Arts, the bow easy, Kaiser Craft Snow white pearls, a teddy bear charm, bead circle nestabilities, and  standard circle nestabilities.

The sentiment is from the new Holiday Ticket sentiments at Whimsy.  The layout uses the Midnight Madness sketch.

I noticed I place my squares on the opposite side.  Oops~


Midnight Madness- sketch
Oldie but goodie- all creatures great and small 
Incy Wincy- Sparkle and glitter
For Fun Challenges- Use something you have never used before (the ticket sentiment and the plaid paper)
Stamp Something- Punch something (my border) 
Anything Goes - Christmas Comes Early
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sparkle and Shine
Sweet Stampin - diamonds are a girls best friend
Hannah Stamps-  Christmas cards
 Gingerloft- All that glitters or blings  
Wild Orchid-Stitching
The Creative Cottage #24 - bling
Prairie Fairy Friday- Tickets or tags

For more inspiration using the Wee Ones at Stamp and Create for 25% off, please visit my talented dt sisters:  Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.
Your Next Stamp will be at ScrapFest Oshawa 2010 (Canada) this weekend (15-16 October).  To celebrate, Karen is offering a 10% discount voucher for those attending the show!  Simply print out this voucher and present it at the YNS Booth to receive 10% off your purchase of YNS stamps!
The Your Next Stamp DT also have a very special blog hop planned for this coming Friday (October 15th) where we will be showcasing a VERY special stamp!  The stamp will only be available for a very limited time and will be at an amazing price with free shipping to boot, but we can't tell you anymore than that right now as it's top secret!  So be sure to pop back here on Friday to hop along with us, see this extra special stamp, and be in with a chance to own it yourself! Any crafter who isn't able to grab this stamp will definitely be disappointed.  As I said, it's only going to be available to buy from the YNS store from Friday and for a VERY limited time and I'm positive you'll kick yourself if you miss it!
I hope you enjoyed my creation today!! Thanks for stopping by today and for leaving a comment.  I so appreciate you!!
