Sweet N Sassy Stamps Birthday blog hop

Hi everyone, I hope that you are doing well and that you had a good Thanksgiving if you celebrated it. I don't know about you but I am in full swing trying to prepare for Christmas. However, I am glad to take a break for a bit to share a Christmas card that I made for the birthday hop. I am thrilled to be sharing in the celebration with Sweet N Sassy stamps. I met Korin Sutherland, the owner, a little over 4 years ago now when I started designing for her company. I have been so blessed to be a part of this company and I missed it so much when I had to take a year off for family reasons. I am very happy to call Korin one of my closest friends and want to congratulate her on 5 years of being in business.

So a little important info that you will want to know before I show you my card:
 ~There will be 4 prizes given to commentors on 4 random blogs throughout the hop and each will receive a $15 store credit.
~To be included in the drawings, comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th. ~The winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8am EST Here is the card I would like to share with you today:

  pearlsFor my card I used the beautiful Christmas Sentiments set from Sweet N Sassy stamps. Can I just say that I totally LOVE this set! I love that they are large and can stand alone on a card or paired with an image. I think it is also cool that because they are clear you can customize them by cutting them so you can use them horizontally the way they are packaged or cut them like I did and make your own design- cool huh? One thing I think that you will love is that ALL Christmas stamps are 30% off through tomorrow. So, after you leave your comment below to be entered in the drawing for the prizes, head on over to Sweet N Sassy stamps to shop for some great deals.

Supplies: 
Stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Christmas sentiments Paper- red sparkle, cryogen white, kraft, Echo Park Season's Greetings dp 
ink- SU old olive, fired brick distress ink
accessories- ivory crochet lace from Spare Parts, pearls, poinsettias (Michaels), SU olive grosgrain, oval nestabilities, Zva creative pearl flourish, paper piercer

Thanks for stopping by today!
